Wondering if anyone can offer their expertise on this subject. I'm a videographer and my workflow includes Final Cut Pro X, Compressor, Adobe Encore, and a handful of post applications (Magic Bullet, CrumplePop plugins, etc.) What hardware specs most influence rendering times? Is it the CPU, the amount of RAM, the graphics card? Are they all equal in importance for video work, or is one more crucial to have than the other? I'm currently running on a couple-years-old MacBook Pro that's starting to lag quite a bit and looking to upgrade, but want to make sure I'm putting my money towards the specs that matter most for my work.
