For Advisors Who Will Produce Their Own Marketing Videos, Apple Announces New MacBook Pro With Retina Display, 0.71-inches Thin, Shipping Today

Tags: apple | laptops | marketing | videos

A 2880 x 1800 resolution, a casing measured at just 0.71-inch thin, you'll get up to 16GB of RAM, NVIDIA Kepler GT 650M graphics, up to a quad-core 2.7GHz Core i7 processor, a maximum 768GB solid state drive, and a promise for up to seven hours of battery life. For well-heeled advisors who want to edit their marketing videos and presentations, this is a good machine.

 

You don't need a powerhouse computer unless want to edit videos or webinars and use them in marketing and blog posts. But for a hands-on advisor who is successful and wants to communicate directly on the Web to clients and prospects using video, this is a good investment.

 

It comes with Final Cut Pro, which is the best software ever for video editing and was simplified last year.

 

So, even if you only use this machine to create your own vidoes once a quarter, you'll still get huge value.

 

As a geek who does webinars and makes videos from them, this looks like a good deal to me.

 

The new MacBook Pro will start at $2,199 for the 2.3-GHz quad-core i7 processor with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of flash storage, CNET says. 

 

But if you're using it for video editing, you may want to go for the additionall RAM and solid state drive storage. No word yet on the exact cost of customizing it but it will likely push up the price $3000. That's $3500 with a service plan and tax.

WHY can't a pc manufacturer come out with anything remotely this sexy and cool. Always playing wannabee catch up. Disappointing, really. I was always a Dell fan, but they, and every other pc company are 2 generations behind Apple, it seems. I like windows over OSX, but it's getting harder and harder to resist becoming a full-fledged member of the Mac cult, especially since I have some frustrations with their gateway drug (iPad) that the "good S**t" overcomes.

Andy, The new Retina Display Mac only has solid state storage available. The amount starts at 250 gigs and goes up to 750 for significantly more money. The fully decked out machine with maintenance, and you really need to buy maintenance for this machine is close to $4,000.

Yep, that's about right. Very expensive. But that's top of the line. You can save $500 by going with the 512 GB solid state drive. If you produce your own videos, that's the machine to get.
