I'm a video editor and I'm well overdue an upgrade on my late 2006 Macbook Pro. I'm currently rocking: MacBook Pro Late 2006 - 15-inch Core 2 Duo Processor 2.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Memory 3 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM Graphics ATI Radeon X1600 256 MB Storage 500 GB SATA Disk It's lasted me this long thanks to maxing out RAM, replacing the hard drive and battery. Unfortunately I can't update the OS X past 10.7.5, the screen is starting to flicker, the DVD drive is broken, it sometimes overheats and shuts down by itself and trackpad button sticks etc. So as you can imagine, I'm eager to upgrade my computer. What's the best model to choose for video editing? I work with FCP 7, Premiere and Avid. I don't have the most money in the world (hence it taking me over 8 years to save enough to consider a replacement) and would like to spend around $2000CAD. Would I be able to get any money selling mine? Does anyone edit frequently on a 13" and have no trouble with the smaller screen?
