Mac Book Pro for Great Video Editing on the Road


I’m approaching my one year anniversary of owning a MacBook, and I’m incredibly happy with the service it has given me.

I still have my HP laptop on my work desk as the day-to-day machine, but the MacBook Pro 13 has been the tool I’ve used when travelling, when away covering events such as SXSW and Eurovision, and for a decent amount of use around the house as well. But last July the MacBook Pro had one main goal to fulfil – and I’m glad to say that no matter how much fun I am having with other areas, the primary role is a success.

That role is video editing.

Once I sat down with a bit of paper to list what I would need in any new machine, it was clear after Eurovision 2012 that I needed to be able to edit video myself competently. I had some PC tools, but they simply weren’t good enough. An Apple refurb MacBook Pro came in at a reasonable cost, and it had iMovie bundled with it.  I was able to define what I needed, I was able to match that up with the capabilities and software on offer, and I’ve never looked back.

So a simple thought for today. Stop. Think. And choose the right tool for your needs, on and off the road.
