Right now I'm trying to decide if I should get a laptop or desktop for editing. I know I can get a desktop thats way more powerful than an MBP for a fraction of the price but without the mobility. Right now Ive got a refurbed macbook from like 2010 that runs decently fast, I upgraded the RAM from 4 to 8 but for editing it really cannot handle much. Ive got $1500 to spend on a computer, what would you guys do?
My thoughts are-
buy Eheaths computer for 1200, spend the extra 300 on a monitor and use my current laptop to go to classes and take notes etc.
buy a 13in retina MBP with a 2.6 processor and 8gb of RAM, which is obviously not as powerful as Eheaths but Ill be editing gh3 footy which I think the computer would be able to handle it fine.
option 3 buy other PC laptop?
