Hi! Can anyone suggest the best possible MacBook Pro combination for use with Camtasia for Mac and SnagIt for Mac? That is, what should I consider when I pick the processor, hard drive, etc.

(And before anyone tries to persuade me to the PC side, I do most of my Camtasia screencast work on a PC now - and probably will continue to do so. However, my next personal purchase will be a MacBook Pro and I want it to be sturdy enough to easily handle Camtasia for Mac's needs)

Thanks in advance for the advice!

Thank you very much! I've looked at these a couple of times already. I'm hoping a current user or two will chime in and tell me about their current experiences as well - whether they feel maybe they should have gone with the 15" MBP with it's quad core even though dual core processing is specified, or if maybe someone prefers one graphics card over another.

I'm on the hunt for some real geek knowledge! : )

Shannon, any current Mac should work fine. A faster machine- i7 processor, discrete graphics card, fast hard drives, etc- will have better performance but all models are supported.
