I need more omphf I currently have a MBP hooked up to a HP 24 monitor ( i nice MATTE screen that doesnt double up like a mirror like recent apple displays, but i degrees). I need it to do multicam editing in FCP, render / encode quicker than my MBP using FCP but will be edging towards Premiere / After FXs I have the early 2009 MBP 17" model so perhaps go for a MP around this time? im guessing will save 40% off the current price? Any suggestions on models, spec? do i need the apple raid card for up to 4 drives working as a raid?
