Also, the timeline index is a pretty unique and amazing feature in X. Being able to have a searchable timeline is great and being able to highlight all of your text at once and either move it all up or resize in a few key strokes is also magnificent. The audio plugins in X are also really fantastic as they have been ported over from Logic X and they are all really high quality and give you really great results without having to roundtrip to motion or pro tools.
I'd like to add that X can do turnovers far more efficiently than any other NLE. It also round trips with Resolve quite beautifully as the xml from X is far more advanced than the older xml that came out of FCP7. There is a great example of the turnovers workflow here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypNttDDrDBs
That's been my experience, the high end PC laptops are worthless in three years and the macs just keep going and going. Worth that extra cost if you ask me.
Premiere works with Open CL just as well as it does with Cuda.
Kubrick clearly read some Camus.
You can do all of this as well in the latest version of FCPX.
