    The MacBook pro, enough to edit AVCHD

    48997Productions Level 1

      Ok, I am in the market to upgrade to a new Mac. The Mac I have now is a desktop, and it's not very powerful. I would get a desktop but I edit at friends houses a lot. So will the new 13" be enough with 2.7GHz dual-core Intel Core i7 processor with 4MB shared L3 cache and 8GBs of ram? Or should I just go get the 17" with  2.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor with 8MB shared L3 cache. Right now I edit 1080i @ 5mbs/second. But I will be upgrading soon enough. Also, I edit a show and I have clips from 6 episodes in the bin and premiere can't handle it on my old Mac. Will one of those MacBook pro's handle it?   Thanks
