Mods, feel free to put this in a more appropriate forum (hopefully not the deleted bin!) The time has come for me to buy my next laptop. I have been running a 2012 rMBP, but times have changed, 4k video is firmly on the horizon for me and most others if not already, and editing in FCPX on my current machine is just too slow a process. I have a budget of around £1600/$2400 approx including the sale of my rMBP. I love the workflow and streamlined nature of OSX/FCPX and it feels very stable to me.. However.. I want the best bang for my buck. I need a machine capable of editing and rendering 1080p with ease, but also with consideration to rendering 4k. Are there any decent Windows based alternatives to the rMBP? What kind of specs should I be looking at ideally? I'm thinking something along the lines of.. -16GB+ Ram -i7 Quad Core 3ghz+ -Decent nVidia card with at least 2gb ddr5 -15" minimum screen size with a resolution of 2.5k or above -Thunderbolt port Advice?
