    Editing on a Macbook Pro... good idea?
    Anyone have thoughts on working on a new intel 17" Macbook Pro with 4 gigs of ram, 160 gig HD and 7200 rpm processor?

    I am hoping/planning on moving from an older G5 tower to a more mobile situation.
    What are the upsides and downsides?

    I will be using Premiere Pro, After Effects, Maya and Photoshop.
    Most of my work is short format under 5 minute pieces but maybe a possible longer piece here and there. All for DVD and web delivery.

    O yea, don't even worry about it, this is the only portable choice for a editor, this or the 15". I myself will be upgrading from my powerbook to this. Your specs are on the right track for a worry free editing life. You will love it.

    Great Thanks! How did they get so much power into a thin little device?!
