    Hi,
    I probably should know but which particular configuration of the mac book pro would be best to work with Adobe After effects ? Which hard drive? Will the 2.6 ghz processor make any difference? is it best to order it with the extra RAM or buy it cheaper elsewhere ?

    Thanks in advance

    love

    Crikey......

    Strange enough, Mac Minis have been tested and proven as the best for video editing, like after effects. With the cheap price it's a go. It was something about the way the processor was coded to work with the system.

    Really though, I'm not sure, I want a pro too, i think you want a good graphics card and ram. Don't know how much processor speed helps.

    Why Macbook Pro and not a desktop? Try looking at barefeats.

    You didn't actually say you wanted portability so it's not "duh"
    Please be polite.
    Now the best configuration would be whatever you have to spend. Buy what you can and wish to spend.

    Lolz.

    Anyway, thought I'd resurrect this thread.

    Is the current macbook pro ideal for After Effects?
    That is, a top of the line MBP.

    How would it differ with a top of the line iMac?

    I keep changing my mind about what I want.
    And of course a Macbook is sorta out of the question to run AE somewhat efficiently, right?

    I can't really afford a Mac Pro right now. The iMac or MBP would basically be a means to practice on.
