My last MBP was my 17" I bought in 2008 (the one I am using for typing this). But I am freelancing and needed a good MBP for video editing and anything else. I got the MBP o a Tuesday and I got a gig that Saturday as an audio engineer for an small band in a birthday party. I installed Logic Pro X, connected an audio interface I had in a drawer for 4 years (M-Audio 6 audio channels) USB 2. I went to the party and recorded the 6 audio channels with no problem. My MBP has 1TB flash drive, 16GB Ram and 2GB video card with Yosemite. And today I did a final mix on the 20 songs and sent it to the client, all for $600. And I just brought my MBP and audio interface. I am impress on how reliable this computer is. I hope it last 8 more years. I still have a 12" Powerbook working just fine from 2004.
