    Hi guys, anyone here using Macbook Pro 13" for Same day editing?
    Or do you have any idea if MBP 13 is enough for this or minimal 4k editing?

    Thanks for your feedback.

    How long is your video? And are you using Final Cut Pro? (I saw a YouTube review that Final Cut is better optimized for Macs than Premier)

    I used to use my mid-2011 iMac for family videos... (max 5 mins)

    Just purchased the 2018 Macbook Pro and it should be better than my old iMac (except for the screen size)

    Yes, when settings are 720/60FPS on acquisition then use FCP X. It should be fine.

    4K Editing should be enough. Anything higher than 4K, you need to have a GPU with 4GB Ram Minimum. That's the 15 inch Macbook Pro not the 13 inch. If you intend to use APP you're better off buying a Windows PC.
