We spent 26 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. Video editing is one of the most taxing tasks you can ask a computer to do, so you need a reliable rig with high specs that won't zonk out and erase hours of work. Whether you're an indie director with a shoestring budget or managing a post-production facility, you'll find something that fits your workflow and bottom line among our selection of professional-grade Apple Mac computers. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best macs for video editing on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

January 03, 2019:

Lovingly known as the "trash can," the Mac Pro hasn't been updated by Apple since 2013. However, it makes the list because it has the ability to push multiple displays and its Xeon E5 processor is still a formidable force. For those who feel trepidation about shelling out thousands of dollars for five-year tech, Apple has said it plans to release a revamped version sometime in 2019.
