Hi all, I'm looking to buy a new Mac to get some better performance in FCPX. I'm currently running FCPX on a 2010 Mac mini, which is still a Core 2 Duo machine. It runs, but once I start adding some effects the age of the hardware really shows. Multi-cam editing, which I do use a lot, also drops frames like mad. On top of that, transcoding and exporting is a real pain as it can take many hours to complete. I'm not a professional videographer, it's a hobby of mine and as such my projects are not that complicated. On average I would say my projects are about 30 mins in length with some effects added (mostly transitions and titles). I only edit 1080p/30fps, nothing fancy like 4k or anything. The model I had in mind would be the base 21 inch model (Iris Pro) with 16GB RAM and 256GB flash drive (I run my library off an external FW800/USB3 drive so I don't need massive internal storage). I would love to go for the i7 model, but at 500 extra that's a rather steep step up. So I was wondering, is the i5 up for the job or does 500 justify the extra horsepower of the i7?
