    Need your thoughts and expertise on New Mac
    Hello my name is Vince and i'm seeking your expertise and thoughts to which new Mac to purchase. I am using it primarily for Video, editing, production, as well as my mobile office. Macbook, air, and or Pro, complete with internal set up or additional accessories needed. Thanks for your response.

    Your only option for any serious video editing is the Macbook Pro. You haven't told us your budget, so it's really hard to get specific with details.

    But look at the 15" MBP, get the Quad-core CPU and go for the MOST machine that will fit your budget. The newer MBP's have soldered SSD storage, so you'll want to get enough of that and supplement that with an external HD. You will absolutely want 16GB of RAM. CPU is important, and if there's budget you can upgrade.

    I would, however, you take a look at the Mac Buyers Guide which tells you when is a good time to make a purchase. If you absolutely need the machine right away, then go ahead and purchase. There are some rumors coming out that the MBP's RAM will get bumped up to 32GB and a newer generation of CPUs will come, so you might want to wait for that.

    I have no budget. I will purchase whatever is the most beneficial to run apps efficiently and quickly as well as enable my daly use as office. So I guess im saying "your perfect Mac" lol

    That machine will absolutely do what you want it to do. And if your need is immediate, then you can go ahead and pull the trigger. If you can wait till about September (when Apple traditionally announces refreshes), then you might get a little better machine for the same price.
