Hi, I am currently attending college for motion picture/video editing and am at a stand still on what laptop I should purchase since my old one from 2006(HP) just doesn't cut it for HD video editing. My main question is will I be able to edit HD video(720p,1080p) smoothly without many hitches on the new macbook pros? I would be using the new final cut studios and be getting the 3.06ghrz, 4gigddr3 ram macbook pro. Everything was good to go, but then I saw a sale for an HP laptop that had nvidia 130m graphics card, 4 gigs ram, and a 2.0ghrz core 2 quad processor. The price of the hp with those specs was about $500 cheaper and if I wanted to up the ramm to 8 gigs and give it a 3.06ghrz core 2 duo processor, it would have been roughly the same amount. Some drawbacks from getting the hp would be my inability to use final cut so I would need to get Adobe CS4 instead. I would only be using my MBP for video editing/mac apps/diablo 3(when it releases), so would all that extra power on the HP be necessary? Thanks.
