You might be looking at the Mac Pro and not a laptop. Video Editing of HD video is heavy work so it needs a high end workstation. That's a big investment so I wonder if you are OK with the usual delays on laptops. No PC or Mac is perfect where all things are instant without delay but maxing out the RAM and switching to SSD can really show what modern computers can do.
I've currently got a mini lenovo that's 3 years old now. The screen needs replacing as flashes while I'm working on it and I've had it go all white a few times and then after fidgeting with it a while, it works again. Also it takes really long to open a program that is being opened for the first time and I don't like that at all.
I'm looking for something that is super fast where I can open like 5 to 10 windows such as itunes, a video editing program, Word (would put Word on my Mac), and different files without my laptop freezing or getting super slow.
I want to be able to make short films using a simple but high quality program. I like Windows Movie Maker but when I made a movie that was only 20 minutes long, it crashed on me many times.
I don't need a small lightweight laptop as I'm not planning to do a lot of travelling with it.
I live in India and I'm not sure if buying a Mac would be an issue when it comes to support since there's not really a big Mac user population here. Although I keep hearing that Mac's don't ever cause problems.
I'm a bit lost and confused as to whether I should switch to a Mac for the first time or stick to PCs and if I do go for a Mac what's the best one to get and what should I be looking for?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
