Long story short- 12 MacBook Pro Retina i7 user here who’s MacBook is crapping out. Decided to take the plunge as I’ve been wanting to switch to pc for editing/production for a while now as the price/performance with Apple is just too large to ignore and I use Premiere Pro and the MacBook I have really isn’t cutting the mustard despite the fact that the graphics card/battery are both crapping out. This is not a windows/mac debate take that elsewhere. I have the following parts ready to order and will likely pull the trigger. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/itwinky/saved/vP3M8d I think it should amount to a pretty darn good studio pc/video editing rig (mainly). I use a simple Focusrite Scarlett interface or my Line 6 Helix so thunderbolt doesn’t matter for me. Studio One is the daw. Any thoughts are welcome. I also will be sticking with my external 1tb usb3 7200 rpm drive but that will be a later upgrade this year.
