    How many of you guys use a macbook pro for editing? I know the 13.3 view is much samller, I was just curious for some feedback.

    Capture the moment.

    I use the 17 inch MacBook Pro 2008 version with 4 gig of RAM. Pretty slow when it comes to compressor or long renders but still works fine. I use LaCie and Caldigit external drives and have had no problems.

    I use a Mac Pro with dual 24″ screens at work and I have a 15″ MacBook Pro at home which I could edit with, too.

    Wouldn’t imagine having to cut the things I do at work at home [HD, ProRes, compositions, long renders/transcoding] – but it is not impossible.

    Though one thing I really miss is the amount of screen real estate I get with dual screens – personally, I would find the 13″ too small! Unless you link up with an additional monitor.
