I am in my final year of film school and I would like to finally use my own equipment this year, so from school and back home a MacBook Pro wld be perfect, especially for editing I also will be taking on some odd jobs in aspirations to launch my business on a small scale. So the editing that I will be doing will not be on a massive scale but it wld b a fair amount. Hoping 2 run adobe cs4 and final cut on it. So i already know that MBP 17" is the ultimate purchase for editing but can any of the cheaper brands do the job as well? I can use some extra cash to buy a better camera What do you think?
