I currently need to buy a new laptop for editing stuff on the go. I have a full workstation running Mac OS at my studio but I want to be able to edit when I'm not in my hometown. I really like Mac OS and I was thinking about getting the new Macbook pro (2016). Nowadays I edit mainly 24/25/30fps 1080p footage but I may be upgrading to the new gh5 and want a machine that can handle 4k 60fps. Bear in mind that the bulk of my work will still be done on my workstation and this is just a solution for me to be portable when needed. Do you think I could get away with this using the 13" model? I like that one because it's more portable, more affordable and I can always plug it in to an external monitor when available. I don't know if the absence of a dedicated GPU will ruin it's capabilities for video editing. I use mainly Adobe Premiere Pro CC and sometimes davinci resolve for color grading. I might get into FCP since I heard is much faster than premiere though.
