For video edition and design, better processor or better RAM memory?

I'm plannig to buy a MacBookPro to use it with programmes like Apple Motion, Final Cut, Photoshop or Lightroom. My doubt is: to get better processor or improve the RAM memory?
Thank you!

    Most of today's processors are so fast that the best improvement you can make is to max out your RAM. Because the computer can not work on data without bringing it into memory, the more memory you have the faster the task will be done! I always get the maximum RAM I can when I get a computer and it makes the world of difference!

  • Your best bet would be to get the 15" macbook. It has a dedicated video card. That will have the biggest impact, particularly with your video editing.
