  • Mac Laptop

    A friend of mine is after a Mac Laptop to do a bit of video editing. Nothing big, just to play about with it and learn.

    I now very little about Macs and even less about video editing, so who has a good idea? Budget is 600 but less is preferred. Second hand is probably an option too.

    so it seems the cards stack up like
    NoAA / NoAF: 9800GX2> GTX280> GTX260> HD3870X2> HD 4870> 9800GTX> HD 4850
    4XAA 16XAF: GTX280> 9800GX2> GTX260> HD 4870> HD3870X2> HD 4850> 9800GTX

    interesting how close some cards are now.

          I am not losing weight! I'm getting rid of it. I have no intention of finding it again!

            Macs are, IMO, overrated in terms of video editing. You can usually get a higher specced windows PC for less money. Yes, windows has a worse built in video editor, but the mac one's pretty appalling too. Get a windows laptop for 500 and a 50 (or maybe freeware, I haven't checked them lately!) video editor is my advice.

              Get a windows laptop and keep the extra processes down to a minimum when video editing and it should perform better than a MAC
