[Jeremy Garchow] "[Shane Ross] "Of course not. What makes you think I do? I don't recall saying anything of the sort."

I think it as something like, "what does apple care about pros"?"

Other computer makers make towers. HP Z800 for example. PC towers aren't going away.

[Jeremy Garchow] "The AJA ioXT has loop through"

Ahh....missed that. Good device!

[Jeremy Garchow] "I have and do edit on a 17" MacBook pro when on the road."

So have I. 17" is a lot more than 13". And I have edited on a 13" machine too. Not fun.

[Jeremy Garchow] "Desktop processors aren't ready. I'm sure we will see one when they are."

They aren't? Then what are all the HPs and Dells and other Windows Desktops running?

[Jeremy Garchow] "If you need a 24 sizzle core beast for your VFX work, have at it. Plenty of manufacturers make them, but for editorial and color? Maybe not."

WE all need to render at some point. Not every effect is full quality/real time. And shortened render times are good things. Export times too...encoding to H.264, Broadcast MPEG-2, WMV. Processor power is a GOOD thing for the many tasks we in basic editorial still need to do.

[Jeremy Garchow] "What do I care if it's an iMac, an Air, or a desktop? My clients don't call and say, was this edited on a desktop?"

Client perception is huge. And you aren't always alone with your own devices. Many times you have clients in the room, and if they see a small laptop, or iMac, they will wonder, "is this guy really a professional?" I hate that perception...but many clients, AGENCIES mainly, have that perception.

Anyways...I'd love a kick ass laptop, but I need big dual screens for my work. I have a LOT of footage to sort through and need the screen space.
