Hi there, this is my first post to the Macrumors forums, so thanks for welcoming me here! I'm a Mac user since the early 90s, I've owned many Macs across the whole range, but this time I can't decide upon the perfect set up. The situation now: My wife owns a 13" Macbook Pro from 2010 which is fine, but it's getting a bit slow and is quite heavy to lug around. I own a 13" Macbook Pro Mid 2009, battery & trackpad are shot. I also own a 11" Macbook Air mid 2013, which is my daily work machine. I love everything about that laptop: the size, the weight, battery life, the keyboard. The screen is not too great, but it doesn't bother me. The half-broken old Macbook Pro serves as a stationary Final Cut work station with external monitor, magic keyboard & mouse. Editing videos on the old MBP is possible, but it takes patience and Zen-like calm. It was okay, when I edited a short video once a month, we're doing more now (about one video per week, so still no heavy workload) I'd like to get a better Final Cut workstation and maybe also give a lighter laptop to my wife. Budget is around 2000 Euro (European prices). So my options are, as I've figured so far: 1 - I buy a current Macbook Pro 13" and use it as my main computer & as the Final Cut workstation. My wife gets my 11" MBA. pro: all problems (sort of) solved with one computer contra: it's a compromise. My new computer is not as portable and small as my old one and the MBP is okay, albeit not perfect for video editing. 2 - I buy an iMac with a dedicated GPU for the same price as the MBP. pro: super cool Final Cut work station contra: my wife and I are still working on our old and partially heavy computers, the new purchase is only used once per week max. 3 - I buy a Macbook and a Mac Mini. I use the Macbook (smallest config) as my ultra-portable Computer, give the MBA to my wife (or vice versa), we use the Mac Mini as our Final Cut work station. pro: we both have ultra-portable laptops for our daily work. contra: we invest money in a very dated computer - video editing would be a bit faster, but possibly still a pain in the neck. Also: this kind of busts the budget a bit. 4 - I buy a maxed out Macbook 12" and use it as my main computer and for video editing. pro: I have an ultraportable machine for my daily work. contra: Everybody says I'm crazy – editing videos on a MB makes no sense at all, when you can get a superior MBP 13" without silly Touchbar for the same price. 5 - Something else I haven't thought of! Thanks so much for your input and sorry for the long post.
