Ok, first, I am the ultimate cheapskate on this site. No one will ever come close to me. I pride myself on being able to squeeze the shit out of a buffalo nickel to git'r'done.
But! It is finally time to get a new Mac. I cant install FCP5 or Studio on one of my 3 beatdown G4 733's. Conversely, I just tried to plug in an external hard drive at my neighbors (not knowing I had a faulty cord) and had a lightning show, and practically singed my hair in the process. Scary. So I need the cheapest storage options too.
So, should I get a laptop or tower for editing footage from my Red? I want to mutitask, and the laptop is perfect for that, but damn, a towers got the power!
