    Getting started with Final Cut Pro
    Hi guys, I would like to make my first steps with FCP and to purchase MacBook for it. It will be my 1st mac experience:) Looking for an editing tool for 4k video projects. Would be happy to get recommendation and thoughts about which computer to buy. Thx. Yonatan

    Hi Yonatan - In general I 'd recommend the most powerful Macbook you can afford, something with at least an i7 CPU and 16-32GB RAM, plus a 1TB [or larger] internal SSD drive [not to mention external drive[s] and possibly a second [larger] 4k monitor]. The other major consideration would be the video card/GPU, but as a music guy I can't really advise on that -- I've attached one of our FCPX courses to this thread, maybe some regular FCP users will weigh in with additional advice.. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202239
