My wife is asking for an Apple Macbook. She has been using her iPad3 to do iMovie edition, and she has outgrown its capability.

The cheapest Macbook Pro with an i5 core, Intel graphic, 1280x800 resolution, 4GB of ram, 4.5 lbs is $1099 refurb price.

I can get a new Window ultrabook for less than $800, and she can use Adobe Premier.

But she wants iMovie, sh.

Yea... But, from everything I can see about it, iMovie is very easy to use, and moving from an iPad to a Macbook Pro would give her more power and features, without a significant learning curve.   iMovie on a Mac does look to be very easy to use with the features that she'd probably need.

The results may also be much better, as compared to trying to learn how to use something like Adobe Premiere instead.

Here's a "comparison" that you may or may not find entertaining.
