Anyone out there using a MacBook Pro and Thunderbolt for editing? I am considering selling my current 2010 MacBook Pro (dual i7) and my 2007 8-core Mac Pro for the new Retina MBP, which (if Geekbench is any indication) is actually more powerful than my 8-core Mac Pro. I figure it would be nice to consolidate both machines into one that is not only more powerful, but has USB 3.0, Thunderbolt, retina, etc. The one thing I'm struggling with a bit right now is finding a good solution for my footage. In my Mac Pro, I currently have two 2TB drives dedicated to footage. One is the main footage drive and the other is an nightly backup of the footage (with auto-archiving for deleted files). I also have another 2TB for personal media and archiving of completed projects. I've been looking at Thunderbolt external storage but they look to be considerably more expensive than non-Thunderbolt drives. Even eSATA G-Tech RAID drives are relatively cheap compared to the Thunderbolt equivalent (of course, then I need an eSATA to Thunderbolt adapter... $200. Plus Thunderbolt cable... $50). I don't mind investing the money in something if I know it's going to be a worthwhile investment. I've heard that single-drive Thunderbolt externals are a waste of money because you're not actually utilizing the speed of Thunderbolt (due to SATAIII being 6.0Gb/s and simply using a 7200RPM drive). Basically, you need a RAID to justify Thunderbolt. On the other hand, USB 3.0 externals are dirt cheap. I planned on getting at least one for my personal files and data backup/archive. But from what I've heard, USB 3.0 still suffers some of the performance issues that USB 2.0 did with intensive video editing--dropped frames and slow response in editing software. Does anyone have experience with these different drive types? If you're an editor/animator that primarily uses a MacBook Pro, what is your setup like? Thanks!
