Hello members, I've been reading through your forum & was hoping to get help with a decision I need to make. I have already read a few of your threads about the mac vs pc question, but was hoping to get more perspective for my specific situation. Up to this point I have always been a PC user. However, I am now going to be doing some simple video editing work. No feature film stuff; just Youtube videos (longest probably 30-40 minutes in length). I will be working with green screens; audio overlaying; etc... But that is about the extent of it. All my friends are telling me to go to Mac, especially since it has HDMI port for direct camera hookup; Imovie already installed, which they have said is fairly easy to use, directly uploads to youtube, has greenscreen software, etc... Now, if I go mac do you advise me to upgrade to 16 GB Memory? Or will the 8GB with an external hard drive for saving videos be sufficient for what I am looking to do? What about the amount of flash storage? Finally, in your expert opinions is it worth it to splurge & switch to mac - $1299 entry level with i5 processor (cost is more to upgrade memory, & external hard drive) When I can get a PC Laptop with an Intel i7 processor, 1 TB Hard drive, for around $800? (I will probably have to buy video editor software. So another 100-200 will need to be added. However, even with that I will still be saving around $300-400.) I'm in school so of course cost is important to me. However, if mac is much better for creative projects & what I am looking to do, easier to use, faster, then I won't mind spending the extra money. Any info, opinions, & advice would be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU!
