simple said I am hoping someone out there has been using final-cut pro with mackbook-pro 15" i5 version 2010. I am trying to decide what to purchase between the two..(MBP 15" 2.53GHz i5 vs imac21.5-inch:3.06GHz)
I am already aware of the cliches: portability vs price vs storage etc.
Is one better for editing, rendering, etc than the other. Or any other feed back actual users may have??? Thank you very much! Rod
Well, when we were faced with this decision back in the pre-unibody days, we went with iMacs and glad we did. Saved a ton of money and for some reason, the imacs with same speed processor seemed to perform a little bit better... they at least stayed cooler during long renders:)
iMacs are also much better on your eyes when looking at tiny keyframes in FCP or elsewhere. There is just more room on a 24 inch screen for that kinda work... and we have externals hooked to the imacs just for more space.
But bottom line is probably whether you need to take the box to the field or not. Lugging an imac is no fun at all:)
