| p.2 #7 · Macbook Retina - processing weddings |
i don't understand why anyone wouldn't buy a cheap macbook and spend the money on a tower? i couldn't imagine editing a wedding on a laptop.
just bought a new 13" i5 macbook pro for email and travel. but my editing will always be on my tower in the office.
Well, like many here they are waiting for a legitimate Mac Pro update. My 2006 Mac Pro is about 8x slower than the MBPr so in many ways it is a fabulous replacement! Especially hooked up to the Promise Pegasus R6 for superfast editing. My Mac Pro, as good as it was, will never touch the MBPr. I also have two Apple Thunderbolt Displays which are quite good for editing on. For me it is a stepping stone. I will get a new Mac Pro next year and then the MBPr becomes a purely mobile workstation.
i don't see how a macbook pro would even compete in terms of speed of even a base MacPro.
i have a 3 year old MacPro tower. 8 core with 24GB's of RAM and i would bet that it would outperform most MBP's.
i may be totally wrong and missing out however. i've never claimed to be a computer techy guy
Seriously! Heres what i have realized with most people that buy macpros, they NEVER upgrade them and keep them "stock" so 3gbs ram and the 7200hd... Get a freaking SSD run your programs off that, and fill the other bays for data. Get 16gb min of ram or way more because its so dang cheap, and upgrade the video cards which isnt really needed. A mac pro will walk over a macbookpro any day
