Hello! I am intend to purchase a macbook next month for my video and photography editing work. I am torn between purchasing a Macbook pro or an apple monitor. I will to have something mobile like the Macbook pro but i also want good value for money as i am a low budget filmmaker just starting out. Can you advise which i should go for. More so, can you let me know the specifications for the macbook pro laptop or apple monitor that will be very efficient for film work. Looking forward to your feedback kemi

A desktop would be better value. But any current Macbook Pro will be OK. I would recommend getting one with an SSD as they are much faster to start up. I'd also get as much RAM as possible. You could use a portable monitor for video editing on the road - the ASUS 168B+ is affordable.
