Since I'm brand new to the audio post game and PT is the industry standard, I've decided to purchase MacBook Pro + PT9 in the near future. I have about $1800 to work with, so a loaded 13" MBP seems the way to go, budget-wise, but I haven't heard much about editing with this particular model around here.
I'm curious to hear some of your experiences with this setup if any of you have any. Are there any hiccups? Does it get hot or sluggish when working with video? Anything you can share would be helpful. This will be my first Mac so I'm just trying to be cautious and still have more research to do. I'm hoping this will be enough to get started on my mixing and editing to picture skills.
Specs via Apple.com:
- 2011 MBP
- 2.7GHz dual-core Intel Core i7
- 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x4GB
- 500GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm
PT9 Compatibility via AVID: "17-inch, 15-inch, and 13-inch aluminum "Unibody" models with Core 2 Duo "Penryn" processors." (Doesn't list any other 13" models.)
Will this setup work? I'm itching to get my hands dirty! Thanks in advance!
