Apple Macbook Pro 16-inch laptop

This product was recommended by Roberta Morris from Leave It to ’Berta

As a design professional who’s worked with many video editors through the years, I highly recommend the Apple Macbook Pro 16-inch laptop. Hands down. In terms of portability and power, this machine has few rivals. It’s fast and the larger laptop screen allows you to work on the go, or you can plug it into a larger monitor, of course. For pros like designers and video editors, you can’t beat the resolution and speed of this machine. It’s not cheap starting from around $2400 and up, but it’s worth it!

MacBook Pro 13-inch (M1, 2020)

This product was recommended by Jordan Rolf from EposNow

The MacBook Pro 13-inch (M1, 2020) is my personal preference for all editing tasks, especially Photo and Video Editing. This product came out at the end of last year as Apple gave the iconic MacBook a refresh. The MacBook Pro is now packed with an Apple-designed M1 chip, rather than the Intel-powered hardware of previous models. This has given the small MacBook Pro a major power boost, with the M1 chip performing amazingly well, especially when it comes to graphic design and video editing. The MacBook Pro also has the longest battery life ever seen in a MacBook which makes it possible to work on the go all day long. For graphic designers who travel a lot, this is easily the best laptop money can buy.
