I want to buy the Macbook pro 13" and want to use it for this purpose

Video editing: final cut pro
- Aftereffects
- animation graphics

Sound Editing: Ableton 7
Adobe photoshop:
Adobe illustrator:


Now I don't know how well it will work while using those programs
I would love some help with the pro's and cons to buying the Macbook Pro 13'

my main concerns are how well I'll be able to use these programs and what issues I'll have when rendering video and music,

Problems I'm looking to avoid

- Continuous Freezing
- Continuous Virus Issues
- Problems rendering
- Multitasking issues

I appreciate any help I can get along with any great suggestions thanks a bunch everyone!!!

- Continuous Freezing RAM and CPU are used mostly in your usage, see below.
- Continuous Virus Issues No viruses on Mac. Only trojans which needs your master password to install themselves.
- Problems rendering Again, CPU and RAM dependent.
- Multitasking issuesRAM dependent.

Answered some questions in red.
Here is what I would suggest:
Macbook Pro 15" w/ the the High-res display (glossy or matte, your choice)
core i5 processor (2.4ghz would be fine)
4gb RAM (stick with this and if you need more, an 8gb kit is $95 aftermarket, not $400 from Apple.)
stock hard drive (upgrade this yourself aftermarket to a 7200 rpm drive if you get the 2.4ghz i5)

If you go refurbished, you save a good amount of money. The following 3 would suit your needs perfectly.
http://store.apple.com/us/product/G0...co=MTgxNDI5MzU This one is ideal.
http://store.apple.com/us/product/G0...co=MTg0MzI3MzA This one has the standard screen but a 128gb SSD for even faster performance. You would need a big external store everything on tho.
http://store.apple.com/us/product/FC...co=MTgxMzM0MTE This is the base model 15" refurbished.
