I am looking at buying an iMac or a MacBook Pro with Retina display, but I don't know which to get. I know that Chris has an older iMac and he likes the new one, and he also has a MacBook Pro with Retina display.

My friend has an iMac and really likes it, but I don't know what would be the best one for me.

I'd like either an iMac or MacBook that does OK in video editing and is pretty fast, so which one should I get?I want something that has a good amont of power but is also portable and has a large enough screen to see everything you need to see.when I go to the apple store I usally look at the MacBooks and iMac I like both but I want something more portable too so I don't know.I know that you could take your iMac with you nut that would just seem weird,at least to me. S which one should I get?

If you ever plan on reselling your computer, the MacBook Pro has more demand. However, I absolutely love iMacs.

If you need the portability, get the MacBook Pro. If you don't need portability, get the iMac.

Well that really depends mainly on how in depth of video editing you need and do you prefer something that is mobile. The one thing I do not like about the Macbook Pro with Retina is that it is less upgradeable than previous macbook pros. The RAM is soldered to the motherboard. But you can buy a great machine that will not require upgrading for a while if you want to spend the cash. The imac has a beautiful display and available in larger screen.
