I'm gonna take a look. Thanks!
Thank you Herman,
I know I can buy a better pc (if we're talking about graphics, processor, ram and drives) for much less money than a Mac. I have a PC at my studio (4790k, gtx 970, 16gb ram, two ssd + 2 hdd running on a raid0 array for speed) because it didn't make sense for me to spend the extra ton of money on a less capable imac (for example) specially knowing I could easily run Mac OS on the PC. So as I said before, I'm not planning on buying a new workstation. I'm willing to prioritize portability, functionality and ease of use over performance to a certain extent. I know there are some new PCs (ultrabooks as they call it) that are superior than the MacBook in terms of performance such as the Dell xps 15 but in every aspect that is not about performance specs (and price) the MacBook is much superior, specially for people that use Mac OS.
Also I'm considering moving to final cut pro since I don't use after effects and supposedly the performance is much better. I can use fcp for cutting which is way cheaper than premiere and resolve (which is free) for color grading.
Since the GPU is important I'm considering the 15" model. Do you think I could get away with the stock gpu (Radeon pro 450)? Again, this is not going to be my main machine.
Thanks for the advice, Josh. I like the 13" because it's small and since most of the times I have to edit something out of town I can easily find an external monitor that I can hook it up to. Also I own a 2009 15" MacBook pro and in terms of screen size it is enough for me (bearing in mind that is just a portable solution). The gpu might be the real issue for me though. What about dual core vs quad core? According to apple's website there's no quad-core version of the 13", even the i7 model is only dual core.
