Premium Member Adam Frisch FSF Posted August 9, 2005 Premium Member Share Posted August 9, 2005 I use a 2 month old 12" Apple Powerbook that has all the whistles and bells. It's my little portable cinematographer-factory. On it I edit my reel in FCP, color correct a couple of shots I'm not happy with in AE or FCP, build my reel with flashy menus in DVD Studio Pro and when I'm happy I burn the DVDs on my built in Superdrive. Naturally I also update my website regularly with it and print covers and stickers for the reels. So in that regard it has earned its money back in less than a month compared to some outside source. As I'm writing this I'm in Berlin on a job, in my hotel, connected to the internet wirelessly with my built in Airport, eating a swiss bar of chocolate. I absolutely love it. Due to it's small size and light weight, I can bring it along everywhere, even when I go on one of my long bicycle rides. Sure I occasionally miss a bigger screen, but I'm planning on getting a 20" monitor to have when I'm working at home - with that there's no need to ever have a bigger laptop. The whole point of gaving a laptop is that it should be small. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
