So, I think I found the perfect solution to my computer needs. I've been looking for something that's portable but also gives me the power to edit the occasional go pro videos. My initial thought was to go with the BTO 13 Air with everything maxed out which would be around 1880. The only problem is does it have the chops to edit video well?? So then I started thinking about the refurbished 15 retina pro for 1599 but it only comes with 256ssd. Even though I love the dedicated graphics card I wouldn't be able transfer over my data on my external hard drive. Since time machine won't let you pick out individual videos/photos. So after days of pondering I realized I could get a refurbished i7 mini for 679 and a new 13 air for 1049 plus the 100 gift card which would bring the total to 1862. Which is the same price as the BTO air. What do you guys think?? I like the idea of having a home system and the portability of a laptop since I always bring a laptop to work. What do you guys think? ---------- By the way I already have a 23 inch ips display so need need for a monitor.
