    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

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