Hi I am new to the forum as was not sure who to ask for quality advice, hopefully someone can help me out. I have a macbook pro currently and love it, however, I have since bought a Gopro 7, so instead of editing 1080 footage and being just about OK, 4k has completely battered my machine. I have used proxies and these are OK at about 1/2 quality when editing, but this is without any sort of effects so I feel it would be time for an upgrade. This is what I have now: https://www.dropbox.com/s/9g6kkhqmq2wnbdt/Screen Shot 2018-09-29 at 11.14.39.png?dl=0 What should I be looking at for a better machine? I get I need a faster processor but if I am honest I am unsure which is right for me. I use the following programmes a lot Parallels with Visual Studio Sketch Photoshop VS Code Terminal for Grunt etc Premiere Pro for editing holiday videos. I have looked at the Apple store and seen you can get a quad or a dual-core processor, would I be best with the dual with 16gb or RAM? https://www.apple.com/uk/shop/buy-mac/macbook-pro Or, would you pick the top one and then upgrade it again in the options, again, ensure the difference between 2.3 and upgrading to a 2.7 would be such a jump in speed and benefit me? The other option is to keep my MacBook Pro and get an iMac, would these be a lot better for video editing? Again, unsure which option to choose, how much upgrading I should do as I do not want to spend another £1600 and find out that it is still struggling. Any advice would be great. I would appreciate it.
