Laptop for editing D800 RAW files, Macbook Pro, Air or Ultrabook?
Jul 2, 2012

I am planning to buy a new laptop and want to be able to edit RAW files from my new D800 with it. Does anyone have experience with either the new macbook Pro Retina, the Macbook Air or an Ultrabook like the ASUS Zenbooks for this purpose? I want something small and light that I can travel with but that has the horsepower to deal with the D800 files. Also, what software should I consider? Up until now I have been using View NX 2 and PaintShop Pro 8 but I think it is time to buy something serious.

Thank you,

Doug
