I have an early 2011 13" MacBook Pro (2.3 GHz Intel Core i5, 8 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD, etc.) that really struggles with playing and editing video. I've tried just about everything I can to make the machine run smoother, but it seems my computer just can't handle the video files from my drone or DSLR. I threw the SD card from my drone into my friends 2015 15" MacBook Pro (Retina, 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7, 18 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD, etc.) and it played and edited 4k video flawlessly. Not sure if it's his graphics card or processor that makes such a difference... maybe a combination of both? Anyways... I plan on doing a lot of video editing and looking for some suggestions that won't break the bank. I'll probably get something used or refurbished. Also I'd keep my Macbook Pro if I went the iMac route. What are the main things I should look for... processor, graphics card, etc? - Do i need an i7 or will an i5 do? - Iris Pro vs Radeon graphics card? Will I see a difference - Performance wise, how would the Macbook Pro i7 compare to an iMac i5? - Should I definitely get an iMac if I'm focused on performance? - Anything else I should consider? Any help or recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
