Help Needed: Possible upgrade options for the logic board & processor
I'm currently running the following spec:
MacBook Pro (13-inch, Late 2011)
2.8 GHz Intel Core i7 (I reckon it's dual core)
16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB
Storage drive has been upgraded to a 1Tb SSD
It's beginning to really show its age when it comes to video editing, grinding out 10 minute videos in 1 hour 45 mins in Premiere Pro, and glitching out backgrounds over chromakey in Final Cut Pro X.
I'm wanting to know if it's possible to upgrade the logic board and processor to at least a quad core, and to improve the GPU. If so, where can I find the parts?
My other consideration at this time is to build a Hackintosh from the ground up and only use my old trusty MacBook Pro for quick edits and audio processing. The current range in the Apple Store seems like a complete waste of cash given the spec of the machines.
Is this a good question?
