I Decided to get a macbook for video editing instead an window pc. I was leading towards a Hp Envy but it doesn't have a backlit keyboard and a internal dvd drive. The Dell studio xps 16 and sony F series battery life is too short.



Is the Macbook (White Unibody) or Macbook Pro 13 or Low End Macbook Pro 15 good for heavy programs such as Adobe CS4 Softwares and Filmmaking/heavy High Definition video editing?

Well the macbook pro is called "pro" for a reason-it's specs are much better than the white unibody. So it will handle those apps much better than the 13" white. I recommend an iMac rather than a laptop for video/photo editing, especially HD. But if portability is necessary, then I guess the MB pro will do fine.

How do you like them Apples?

Your thread title says, "URGENT! Need help choosing a Mac!"
