Hello,

I am looking to get my first computer and I would like to use it for GoPro video editing. I have been looking at the MacBook Laptops but they are quite expensive, my budget is around $1000 AUD, I am willing to go a bit higher if I must. I am looking at getting a new GoPro hero 4 Black and it plays 720p at 240fps and 2.7K at 60fps and was wondering what the minimum requirements would be. I was looking at the MacBook Airs but they don't seem powerful enough. I was wondering what you guys think would be good for playing that.. I love macs but if you can convince me I would go windows..

Thanks guys.. 😀👍

This has a Core i7 and not the most powerful GPU, but you don't typically render/edit on the GPU.

So would I have to build this myself? Or does it come already built?

The pcparts Noob suggested would be a system you would need to build yourself.  You could go for a system from a place like magicmicro.com I have purchased a few systems from them and was very happy with their build quality.  You can check out a few of their builds and then post links to them here and we can critique them for you.
