Current Computer Equipment
I’m rocking a 2013 Macbook Pro and if you asked me 12 months ago the new variation would have been the one I’d have sworn I’d buy next. Unfortunately, it really disappointed. It’s just not powerful enough now to run the things I need it for. I need it to churn out 4k video edits and huge Photoshop files on the road. That used to be a laughable request but now it’s happening and available and Apple have dropped the ball. I’m an Apple fanboy too so it doesn’t make me happy saying this. So in 2017, I’m moving to a new system. I’m tossing up between two computers and ultimately I think either will be incredible.
Future Computer Equipment
I’m deciding between the MSI Stealth or the Razer Blade Stealth with Razer Core. Both are really similar with the Razer costing more but having the external GPU with the Razer Core. That would essentially enable desktop graphics on a laptop when I need it and the high speed laptop when I’m on the road. I’m leaning towards the cheaper MSI after testing one recently. In comparison to the new Apple’s I’m in LOVE.
It’s interesting I’m switching from Apple after more than a decade but over the last few years I’ve also switched from Final Cut Pro for my video editing and now exclusively edit with Adobe’s Premiere Pro. I LOVE Adobe cloud and how it works together and couldn’t be happier. For $49 a month I get every piece of software they make, including Photoshop and Lightroom which are my two photo editing choices too. Bonus!
