- Apr 10, 2011
I currently own a Canon 7D with full HD 1920 x 1080 full HD 30 & 60fp, also my gopro hero HD camera
I would like to edit my sports & music videos using final cut pro, with no trouble at all. (also photo editing)
I would like to buy a mac this weeks what would you suggest? Imac 27" i5 or
i7? is there a lot of difference?
Also what pro and cons between macbook pro i5 or i7 and a Imac?
Please help me on this.

Welcome to Mac-Forums pete
If you were going to be doing ALOT of HD editing then the i7 will have an advantage over the i5, the main difference is Hyper-Threading, explained below...
Another significant performance difference is how the Core i7 and Core i5 products will be handling hyper-threading. Hyper-threading is a technology used by Intel to simulate more cores than actually exist on the processor. While Core i7 products have all been quad-cores, they appear in Windows as having eight cores. This further improves performance when using programs that make good use of multi-threading.
All Sandy Bridge Core i5 processors have hyper-threading disabled, and all Sandy Bridge Core i7 processors have hyper-threading enabled. This is a major feature difference of Core i5 vs Core i7 processors, and it will give the Core i7 products an advantage over Core i5 processors in some heavily multi-threaded applications.

Hope this helps
