Hi Folks, I've been referred to this forum from a GoPro forum. (I'd like to state I have used the search function, admittedly only for 15 minutes because I'm at work, and havent found what I'm looking for) I'm on the brink of ordering a 13" Non Retina MBP, the only thing being upgraded is 8GB ram (thats the limit of my budget, i cant upgrade anything else). It will be used for casual home use (internet browsing, YouTube, Netflix), intermediate HD video editing, intermediate audio editing and very very very rare gaming. I dont need lightning fast rendering speeds as the video and sound editing are hobbies, so I dont have deadlines. This is why I'm content with not having SSD. Im aware I can get more value for money with desktops and Windows based products, but I'm very keen to have a Mac & also use their programs (ie, Final Cut and Logic). I also need portability My main concern is video editing. Can the MBP smoothly handle HD video editing? (max: 1080p 60fps) Many thanks Callum Edit: Uh-oh! I fear this thread is in the wrong section sorry!
