So I edit professionally, but almost always on site with other people's equipment as my primary profession. I've had macs in the past, but I do pc gaming and edit my own works at home a lot on avid so I've been using a pc desktop as my main computer and my ipad as my portable device to tool around on and such. Other paid skills include UI design and Hobbies include coding. Im versed in every edit system but FC10 and the writing is on the wall due to a few missed financial opportunities that I learn it to add another asset to my resume, and also take a few small jobs on it. Despite what people in my field say, I feel the new pros are a trojan horse to get FCX into the Pro World more than it is now. I was thinking of going with the retina 13 inch macbook pro, the 2nd tier default setup with 256 and 8gbs ram. I have family at apple so I can apply an employee discount. I didn't want to break the bank, but getting the 4b version with less memory seems dumb right? Even for light editing thats taxing to install so much software I may want to use. Does anyone have experience using FCPX on this unit? Also I've debated the idea of just getting a 13 inch air with 8gigs of ram and rolling with that since that lets me edit at least, and giving me a better form factor. Im also excited to finally have a laptop to use again on the go, since I use my ipad so much and lets be honest its just not the same. Thats where the air potentially seems better, but the better screen and low weight of the 13 are starting to make it seem like the perfect Macbook MID. Another note is I'd be hooking this up to a monitor to do any serious editing, however I do have concerns with going to dual link dvi, since I've read about a lot of issues with that coming from the tbolt of mini display port. Oh well. Anyway thats it, and any input is appreciated. I frequent these boards to read people's thoughts and feelings on products and know you are top rate.
