So I'm wanting to buy a Mac here pretty soon so I can start to do some more advanced video work. Not only that, but the appeal of the Mac OS is reason enough to make the switch. In any case, aside from general 'normal people' tasks, how well can you guys honestly say a Macbook Pro will suit me for HD video editing? I'd love a Mac Pro, but I definitely need a computer I can use to edit and do things with in the field, as opposed to a 'back at the studio' computer, which is what a Mac Pro is. Not only that, but having a Mac Pro and a MBP is a little out of my budget at the moment. I essentially plan to be using a Canon XH A1 High Def camcorder, I'll be doing mostly documentary style shooting. Interviews, behind the scenes shooting for school productions and such, things like that. Not hobbyist work, but not full blown professional work either. My question is, will a MBP really give me the amount of power I'll need to do a feature length documentary efficiently? Or will I need to actually bite the bullet and buy a Mac Pro to go with it? This isn't one of those 'Should I get a Mac Pro or an iMac' style questions, I'm asking because I honestly need a portable machine, but don't want to spend the money on a stay at home machine to go with it. What do you guys think?
