Just wondering how well a 15" Macbook Pro 2.5GHz i7 8GB RAM would play and edit 1080p HD video shot on a Nikon d7000 compared to my current PC 1.6GHz i7 6GB RAM. I'm considering purchasing a Macbook Pro, but first I want to make sure that it will be worth the buy. I do a lot of amateur photo and video editing (Photoshop, Lightroom, etc), and also some web design (Dreamweaver). If I got it, I would install Windows 7 Ultimate and do all of my editing there, because all of my software that I currently own is for Windows. Everything else I would do on OSX. I would build a desktop, but I'm a college student so I'm constantly moving around, and so I need to get a laptop. Also, I'm fine with the smaller 15" screen for photo/video editing because I have another display I would connect it to when I do so. Also, should I get a SSD and buy an external drive, or just go with a bigger 7200rpm 750GB drive? And will it be worth the wait to get the newer line of Macbook Pros that are rumored to come out really soon? Thanks a lot!
