Re: What is cheapest Mac Book I should get?

All MacBooks in the current lineup have enough processing power to edit stills and short movie clips. It comes down to display size and RAM in my humble opinion. I would go for no less than 8GB. As for the display, you might find that 11 inches are enough for you! Visit your Apple Store and see for yourself. The MacBook Air computers have crazy fast hard drives (SSD) and start at below $1k. You can spend more than twice that money on a 15" MacBook Pro with a state-of-the-art i7 processor and it would feel slower because of their traditional spinning hard drives (unless you're willing to really spend).
