Which MacBook?.


Distinguished Member
Replacing my Windows Desktop and I'm looking at Apple MacBooks, I need it powerful enough and with enough memory and storage for video editing. Willing to spend £1600 but I can get a top spec Laptop for £1000 so I need convincing for or against. Any help would be much appreciated.
If I bought one which model and spec'?.

You would probably be looking at the macbook pro 15 inch which is quad core the prices start at £1700 and thats the model without dedicated graphics the one with the 750M is £2200 unless you can get student prices which are 15% off. Like you say you can get a laptop that is more powerful for under a £1000, so it would take some convincing. iMac might get you a better deal

Thanks, I don't want an IMac because I am going to covert my computer room into a utility room as I don't need that much space ( thanks to my Ipad) so a powerful laptop seems an ideal solution.

I have just been out in Orlando and fully intended to buy a 13" however i bought a magazine "So a Mac, but which one" in the airport and after reading it over a few times and checking the bank account/awesome exchange rate, I bought the 15" with 750M. Worked out with the local tax £1702 :)

I am so glad I did. have not turned the PC on once since I have been home!
