    A warm welcome to Mac-Forums. .

    There may well be somebody using this app; but what's your question? That helps to focus the response to your specific needs.

    I want to buy this laptop. I bring computer every day to school. Now I have MacBook Pro 15 2012 (i7 2.3, 8GB RAM, GT650m, 512GB SSD).
    At school we edit videos and I used my MacBook Pro, but it is really heavy so I am looking for some lighter MacBook with retina screen.
    I edit videos from Panasonic Lumix GH4 (4K 30fps 100mbits) and DJI Phantom 4 (4K 30fps 60mbits) in Final Cut Pro X.

    I want to know if MacBook Retina can handle edit 4k videos.

    I know, MacBook Pro 13 with touchbar will be better for editing etc. but I am a student and I haven't got enough money for it.

    It might be able to handle them, albeit slowly. The problem with that machine is the lack of ports. You'll wind up carrying around dongles which will not only make things heavier but a lot less convenient. I would stick with your current MacBook Pro for now and save your money to buy a better machine later on. And by the way, you do not need a MacBook Pro with touch bar. You also might want to take a look at the new MacBook Air.
