Normally I'd recommend my friends to go for a desktop for video editing. Either a Mac Pro or an iMac Pro or most of the time they end up with a hackintosh if they're using FCP. Or just plain old Windows if they use Premiere, AE or Canopus stuff. Sorry Grass Valley, I'm so used to the old name.

I asking recommend for that 2 model only, thanks. I need latpop

wow, usually people do heavy work at main office and only discuss matters with client...you are living in 2037 already...lol...
imo... customize the apple website, get the i7, 16gb ram, 512+ external storage (to save some budget) or 1tb ssd

OR

get the most powerful dell precision with quadro gc..i think that would be fine as well...

some basic calculation here, if your laptop is worth 10k, then productivity should be at least 10 times or more than that...

at least...the lower the ratio of cost/revenue ,the better...( idk my economics understanding is correct or not tongue.gif)

when you got 6hours to go live something, that 10k just worth for everything

ooo, wedding video..that stuff couldn't wait I bet you...it was happening decades ago.
Still, if it worth 10k of the laptop...go for it....wait no more, stop replying to this thread and start buying...once you bought it, share us your experience tongue.gif

that is why my question just between that 2 model,
RM12,499 (2.9GHz Processor 512 GB Storage)
RM10,799 (2.8GHz 256GB storage) with upgrade to 512gb + 4gb graphic card cost RM 12,179

2.9GHz Processor and 2.8GHz Processor, no different right

macbook not just something that bring to starbucks, professional still need it.

couple of suggestion as per below link

https://petapixel.com/2017/07/18/5-reasons-...-video-editing/
http://www.techradar.com/news/best-laptops...editing-in-2017
http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-15-i...-video-editing/

in my opinion, Radeo pro 560 are not powerful enough compared to even gtx 1050ti and above.
I'm not expert and I don't know how the video editing utilize the graphic card and etc.
But if ram is concern, I would reckon to use the DDR4, go for at least 6gb VRAM card and powerful cpu and SSD is a must.
if you need faster storage go for Samsung NVRAM SSD PCIE, costly but deadly extreme in speed.

Still, the mac os sierra might overcome the hardware utilization and maximize the output, like all the apple os alwasy do.

Try view couple of video from youtube before making a solid decision.
*
apple.com dont have that much option to choose(no hackintosh or windows in this case)
my current macbook air late 2012 128gb 4gb ram, back before el capitan still can smoothly edit 1080 video, after update to new os become slower

All newer mac book Pro can handle video editing no problem

Especially when wedding videos will mostl be done on Premiere or FCP X I guess? No 3D or AE involved

I think your bigger question is not the 2.9 or 2.8 ghz
Consider the internal memory also

If I am u, since u are already spending this amount, go for the whole hog and take the higher spec one lah 😊
*
yes using premiere, ligthroom
both setup now different just the 2.9ghz and 2.8ghz

RM12,499 (2.9GHz Processor, 512 GB Storage, Radeon Pro 560 with 4GB memory)
RM12,179(2.8GHz Processor 256GB storage RM10,799 ) with upgrade to 512gb + Radeon Pro 560 with 4GB memory

RM320 different

Then the 2.8 should be okay (I have checked on apple website again)

But Bro, u sure 512 gb okay?

If I am spending that much, I will buy the 1tb to make sure it’s future proof for at least three to five years to come

Especially with High bit rate raw and 4k videos now
Better go for 1tb

My company cloud 4th just got full recently, it’s surprising how much data we capture nowadays
Side note : recent d850 Nikon for instance, every raw is 100mb 😱
*
after done edit those video, will copy out to external hard drive for backup.512gb good enough.
currently got 7tb external. planning to get bay.
1tb need RM 14,019, that a lot blush.gif

just back 13days trip 100gb raw files doh.gif

Yeah man

That’s the thing I’m thinking
Sometimes may not have time to transfer out to external

And sometimes while editing one project then another client wants another project done then u have two projects running or what

This happened to me last week but wasn’t photos on lightroom
My MacBook Pro left 10gb Free space only that time

And external hard drive can be troublesome sometimes

Two weeks ago we shot on a7s2 for about three hours of rolling plus a6500 as B cam
Two Camera add up to more than 100gb

File size is very big now...

each client need get 1 500gb hard drive sweat.gif

If for work, just pick the top spec. Your work soon can cover back your equipment and expenses, but lousy equipments will not cover back your work reputation.

2 things in mind, focus on higher ram and graphic card. Graphic card now can be omitted with the eGPU. Look at below link, sadly it's not official support in Malaysia but soon I believe here will have. Or you can get 3rd party eGPU or lazada store, it would work as well. For now, macbook or laptop can be as powerful as desktop, thanks to eGPU, of course you need extra money  whistling.gif

the two option come with same 512gb and 4gb graphic card, just the processor different.
I think will get the low spec and upgrade ssd and graphic card,so the extra money can buy dongle hub sweat.gif
