Budget Edit Suite-Notebook Edition

I originally thought I would only do one budget solution but, I decided it would make sense to make a notebook version for the editor on the go so I give to you, my portable editing suite!

Computer: 2.8 GHZ 15 Inch Macbook Pro


  • 2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
  • 4GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM – 2x2GB
  • 250GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm
  • SuperDrive 8x (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
  • MacBook Pro 15-inch Glossy Widescreen Display
  • Backlit Keyboard (English) / User’s Guide (English)

Computer Add-ons:


Final Cut Studio $1,000

  • Final Cut Pro (Video Editing)
  • Color (Color Correction)
  • Soundtrack (Audio Editing)
  • Motion (Motion Graphics)
  • Compressor (Compression)
  • DVD Studio (DVD authoring)

Grand Total: $3,270 (Plus  applicable taxes, fees and shipping)

With this version of the solution, you pay about $1,000 less although the processor is half the speed but, this is a great way to edit but, have a lot more flexibility to travel with your edit suite and to edit as you travel with or without the full components of the suite! Once again you can leave out or add additonal parts if you want the mac is a very powerful platform and would be a great way to edit on the go!
