    Macbook Pro Compare Question for Premiere CS5.5

    whitediamondvid Level 1

      Hi, I am ready to buy a macbook pro to handle premiere cs5.5 processingwedding films that I edit on my imac 27". 

       

      Due to limited budget, one part of me wants the 15" screen but the 13" is $300 less expensive with the 2.8 dual core vs the 2.2 quad core of the 15".  Based on the specs below, is it worth the 300 more to get the hard drive power of the 2.2 quad core? 

       

      The 13" has 250 more GB hard drive. Will the 13" macbook pro be suitable enough to import DV film, process the final files and burn DVD's quickly and effectively?

       

       

      13-inch: 2.8 GHz

      • 2.8GHz dual-core
        Intel Core i7
      • 4GB 1333MHz
      • 750GB 5400-rpm
      • Intel HD Graphics 3000

       

      15-inch: 2.2 GHz

      • 2.2GHz quad-core
        Intel Core i7
      • 4GB 1333MHz
      • 500GB 5400-rpm
      • Intel HD Graphics 3000
      • AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 512MB GDDR5

       

      Thanks!
