    Hi all,
    so I had a windows laptop in which i used for video editing which has now broke and have been given a friends macbook pro top use, I cant afford to spend 2k on a new laptop so if possible wish to upgrade this one for editing, i use premiere pro and the laptop is way too slow on playback and very glitchy. what can i upgrade on this to improve it.

    it is currently late 2011 13inch
    2.8 GHz Intel Core i7
    4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
    Intel HD Graphics 3000 384 MB
    750 gb hard drive sata disk

    hope someone can help
    thanks
    terry

    Swap HDD for an SSD. It'll run better than new.
