One of the necessary items for creating passive income on the go, is a good computer and a good video camera. If you’re a Mac person you can’t get any better than a MacBook Pro with Retina display.

I have been a Mac user for years since my son who is a computer programmer converted the whole family from PC to Mac. This is the first laptop that I have ever owned. Previously I have had Mac Mini computers set up for desktop use, and have been extremely happy with the Mac Mini. To enter into a more mobile lifestyle the desktop setup is not practical so I decided to take the plunge into a laptop. I do a lot of video editing especially for YouTube so I am constantly dealing with large video files. I decided that for mobile use I would go with a computer with fast processing speed and a lot of hard disk space. The MacBook Pro answers all of these computer requirements.

The MacBook Pro that I purchased has:

  • Retina display: 15.4-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit display with IPS technology
  • 2.7GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor (Turbo Boost up to 3.7GHz) with 6MB shared L3 cache
  • 16GB of 1600MHz DDR3L memory
  • Intel HD Graphics 4000
  • 512GB flash storage
  • Built-in battery (7 hours)

Pros – This is a thin, light, beautiful computer and it is screaming fast.

Cons – Computer is expensive, but its a Mac and Mac computers just work.

    love the Macbook Pro. I’ve been “converted” from the PC environment since I bought the first iMac that Jobs developed back in the ’80’s. Great product and great company. I could not agree more!

      Wow! You’ve been a Mac user for a long time. My son still has his first iMac from the 90’s. Not sure what he does with it but he still has it.
