  • Why would you edit potentially 4K video on a MacBook? While it would work, it doesn't seem like the right tool for the job...

    You should be considering (at minimum) a MacBook Pro with Retina display, ideally an iMac.

    Can you run FCX or GoPro Studio on the MacBook, sure, but I'd wager it'd be a relatively poor experience. Load times and (especially) the rendering on the backend would be much slower compared to other machines.

    You'd eat through the 128GB SSD if you don't ungrade to at least 256GB, unless you were referencing your libraries via an external HDD.

    If you're looking to edit video, you can get a lot of bang for your buck with an iMac.

    And if you're saying "I need portability," ask yourself the last time you actually removed your portable from your home...
