Hey guys. I'm going to film school in a few weeks and I need a new laptop to do (hd) video editing. I've heard everywhere that macbook pros are the ideal option but their specs (at least for the types I can afford at the moment) seem weak compared to windows laptops. Anyway, I have my eyes on two MacBook Pros (non retina), the one having Quad-Core i7 2.3GHz/4GB/500GB/GeForce GT 650M 512; the other Quad-Core i7 2.4GHz/4GB/750GB/Radeon HD 6770M 1GB. I have a few questions about them. First off, is any of them good enough for smooth hd video editing? I'll be doing a lot of that so it needs to be fast enough. Would it be better to buy a price equivalent windows laptop with certainly better specs? If it has to be a macbook, is it that necessary to buy a retina? I know it has an amazing screen but I'll have to save up more and I'd like to know if it's even worth it. Thanks in advance!
