Well that answers if you need a pro then, want is far more powerful than need :P

 

There's plenty macs will do, and the pro series if you do decide to do some editing is handy. Use the money that you save from the i7 to get a good carry case/bag :P

 

Or a Windows operating system :P

Well it's not difficult to do, although if you go for the smaller 128GB SSD it might be tight on space. I'd recommend 256 for complete storage, I have an SSD in my laptop, and I wish I'd gone for 256GB over the 128GB, even though it has 3 drives :P

I work with both Macs and PC's at work on a daily basis and my point of view is if you have the money and you want a strong reliable bit of kit and performance isn't key to what you want a Mac is the way to go, i know if you crank up the ram etc you can increase the Mac's performance and the standard user might not even notice the difference but in my experience once you try getting Macs to do something intense like video editing it often slows down sometimes to the point where you think its a sleep lol. PC's although often less reliable (more often then not due to bugs in windows or viruses) are far cheaper can be upgraded easier and less complicated to trouble shoot, don't get me wrong Mac's are good for some things but i think PC's out weigh it a lot, i think Apple spend more time on products like the IPad, iPhone and Ipod than they do with there computer range.

I prefer PC's for their gaming power, and their compatibility to play games too. I could have had a Mac instead of my desktop, but it wouldn't have been anywhere near as powerful there really. Good pieces of tech for CAD and video editing though.
