hey guys. Few weeks ago my 2011 15" macbook pro was stolen. It was the top of the line macbook and I used it mostly for video editing. Final cut pro and adobe premiere were the apps that I used the most. Right now I am using my "web machine" 2010 11" macbook air. But for my purposes it is almost unusable So I am searching for new computer I have to travel a lot so I need a laptop, so no iMac or Mac pro screen size is not a dealbreaker since everywhere I go, I have a access to connect my computer to an external monitor. I have no idea what is the real world performance of todays computers (since my mbp was 3,5 years old ) I definitely do not want a computer with dgpu since it was failing in my last one. I am sure that I want 16gb of ram so my options are middle rmp 13" with 16gb Ram (1699$) + smaller for traveling + longer battery life + faster processor when considering one core applications + less expensive -worse graphics card - 2 vs 4 core processor my question is if I will choose bto faster processor, is it going to be worth the buck considering the change in the final performance ? how many monitors am I able to connect to this computer ? base 15" (1999$) everything vice versa from the 13" version I am not able to update any of the parts because of my budget. what would you recommend according to your own personal experience ?
