The bigger issue is that Apple shot themselves in the foot with FCPX. Say what you like about it, but I know not a single sole in the professional world that still edits on it. Avid and Sony Vegas both work on PC (Vegas exclusively). So if the top tier of Apple doesn't shine, than people are gonna peace out for a computer that does.
And yeah, when you're sorting through over 200 hours of footage, every second counts (albeit with 64mb programs, rendering is starting to be a thing of the past).
I love MC6, I just want a computer that can run it now...
5 year old black MacBook still going strong with a whopping 35 minutes of battery life.
PS: There are on average 24 frames per second. If a new computer saves a second (let alone "seconds per frame"), then that's a SHIT ton of time saved in the end. Once again, most people are working with hundreds of hours of footage, and with digital people record EVERYTHING. I'm working on a doc with 5 years of non-stop footage. We have over 12tb of footage. Every god damn second counts.
