Hi guys!

Thanks for the reply!

Just realized I've miscalculated and 27" may be out of my budget and might settle for 21.5" (and in fact, I don't think I need that big a screen too!)

Then again, I also understand there are limitations to the 21.5" like how the graphics card is not upgradable. The specs I'm looking at for the 21.5" is:

3.1GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz
8GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x4GB
1TB Fusion Drive
NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M with 512MB

My questions though:

- Will 8GB ram suffice for video editing and rendering? Or is it advisable to upgrade to at least 16GB?

- With regards to Fusion drive, is it necessary?

- Is the base model's graphic card GT650M enough for video editing/rendering?

Thanks for the advice!
