Hi all, I need your help to decide my FIRST MAC, as I soon have to record/ edit guitar tutorials audio/videos and upload to websites and share with others. I'd like to buy a 15" MacBook pro to edit (preferably record with iPhone 4S for 1080p) using quad-core to proceed, but I'm unsure if the SSD/video ram matters much. Does SSD/ video ram matter much for editing software like iMovie/Final Cut Pro? Which one is a better deal (price/performance), wondering if both sufficeconfused for the purpose of video editing? 1. 15" rMPB 2012 Apple refurbished, 16G Ram/256 SSD / 2.6GHz i7 Nvidia GT650M 1Gb, warranty to Apr 2014 ~$1800 2. 15" cMPB early l2011 Used, 8G Ram/500G HDD/ 2.2GHz i7 Radeon 6750 1Gb Hi-res matte screen Under Applecare to Jun 2014 ~$1150 To be honest, I have been reading over the "Mega HASWELL waiting thread" And the harder question is......which one do you think it'd lose less, if I sell it and update with Haswell in 2014(refurbished when available)? (if 12 hours battery I'll update with Haswell, otherwise I'll keep this for min 5 years ) Thank you very much for any advice and suggestions!!!
