Which macbook version should I take for video editing?

Recommended Posts

Currently, I'm looking for a suggestion to purchase my new laptop. I've already looked at several good laptops from the Apple MacBook series, but I'm not sure which one I should choose. I'm unable to make a final decision until now, as I'm lacking knowledge regarding this subject. Below is a list of specifications I need on my laptop, as well as the lists of editing software. Which I'd like to use with no problems or lag. Please check and suggest to me the best one.


Spec's Requirements:

Processor: Apple M1 or M1 Pro

Display: FHD or XDR

Storage: At least 1 TB

RAM: At least 16 GB

Graphics: 8-core / 16-core GPU


Software lists:

Photoshop (latest version)
Gravit Designer
Adobe Premiere Pro CC
DaVinci Resolve
HitFilm Express
adobe after effects

Does this site providing MacBook Pro legal price, because I have faced some issues with our country reseller, they're charging too much price than the official price. 


I have already posted on some Mac communities such as insanelymac, mac help, and macobserver, but still, I didn't get any good suggestions about this price.

Hope I will receive my best suggestions from neowin community. Thanks in advance

Truthfully, I would go with an MBP 14 (or 16 if you want to go bigger). The XDR screen is AMAZING.

M1 pro is probably fine, unless you want the extra oomph from the M1 Max, which would speed up video editing for you. The price will jump though.

I would go for the 14 or 16" too. The screen is much better, the battery stronger and you can get enough RAM to make editing smooth.


For video editing and rendering the Max CPU really makes a difference (it's instantly noticeable), the extra CPU cores make it much better performing for anything graphics related.


I have both the M1 Pro (home) and M1 Max (work) and the latter is much better when using apps like Final Cut Pro/Premier. I personally went for more RAM (64GB) and storage (4TB) as I do use this much regularly when editing video and developing iOS apps.
