That is the question....I'm thinking about saving up for a laptop, and I was originally thinking about the MacBook, but I'm starting to look at the Pro as well (I don't like to use MBP, it's my school's initials.) Here's what I do: >I travel and do film editing. I currently have an iMac G5 (17", 2.0 GHz, 512 MB RAM, SuperDrive) with FinalCutExpress 3.5. I capture all my footage on my trips, and then bring it home, put them on my external hard disks, finish them, and send the video to my client. It'd be nice to be able to import all the footage while I'm on the trip (footage is anywhere between 1 and 4 hours), put it on the external hard disk, and finish it on the G5. >I think I'll need a laptop for school next year. Self-explanatory. >I surf the web a lot, and I have a wireless network at home, so why not? Which is better for my needs? If I get the Pro, I could just get an off-the-shelf 2.16 GHz one with FCE preinstalled (since I don't have a universal copy of it.) If I get a MacBook, I'd get either the White 2.0 one or a Black 2.0 one with FCE preinstalled. Although the MacBooks' hard disks are smaller, I figure that I'll just put all of my FCE files on the external disks anyway. Which will would better with FCE? Thanks!
