Many questions for portable boinxtv configuration with McbookPro 2012

I read on http://boinx.com : BoinxTV 1.9 is scheduled to be released in early fall with Mountain Lion support.

For this NEXT version of BoinxTV and a portable configuration (2 cameras and 1 McBook pro 2012)

  1. What is the best choice for Macbook pro ?
    a) Macbook WITH RETINA (2 thunderbolt)
    b) Macbook pro 2012 WITHOUT RETINA (1 firewire + 1 thunderbolt)

  2. What is the best choice for 2 same cameras ?
    a) Output FIREWIRE ? Component required ? Which camera use 500 to 1000 € ? Canon hv40 yet compatible ?
    b) Output HDMI ? Which camera to use 500 to 1000 € ? Component required ?
    c) Output USB3 ? Which camera to use 500 to 1000 € ? Component required ?

Thanks
