If you were going to get a new laptop to edit video today, what would it be?

Recommended Posts

What do you look for in an editing machine? What laptop and software combo do you consider to be the best right now? My 2010 MBP is struggling and I need to replace it. I am biased towards Mac because that's all I've ever used. Worth it to switch to something else? Am currently leaning towards finding a 2015 MBP refurb.

Interested to hear the communities input.

Cheers

If you are well versed in FCX I would stick with Mac so you don't need to learn a new program.

The most important things for editing video is RAM and now the ability to process HVEC files. Make sure whatever computer you buy has this ability. I don't think a 2015 MBP has it.

I would honestly suggest an iMac. I have one with the 5k screen and then added a ton of ram. It ever renders fusion 360 files pretty fast.
