i want to buy Dell Latitude - E5520.

it comes with 4 giga of ram, the video card in the title, and Intel Core i5-2430M 2.4 Ghz processor.

today i work with the old premiere 6.5 (from 2002) and i have a workstation with 2 giga ram, ATI radeon HD 2400Pro, and Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Processor(more then 4 years old :-)).

the premiere works good with this machine.

no problems.

my questions:

1. will the graphic card in the laptop(the intel one), will also be good for premiere 6.5, and  i will not have any problems at all?

2. will it also be good for the close-to-latest adobe premiere(cs4 or cs5), and i could work with them without a problem, also?


thanks a lot! :-)

    Re laptop:


    1. Maybe, it might work.

    2. No, no.With the latest CS5, CS5.5 and CS6 you definitely want a nVidia GTX card with at least 1 MB DDR5 VRAM and at least two or better three separate hard disks and at least 8 or better 16 GB memory


    Re desktop: start saving for a new desktop. It is way underpowered.

    If that computer comes with Win7 you may, or may NOT, get P6.5 to work


    If you have Win7 64bit PRO or higher, try Microsoft's Virtual XP
    This is only ONE example of using Virtual XP
    -And a Tutorial step/


    A laptop with only one hard drive is below specification


    Some ideas for a Laptop Video Editing PC from past discussions
    -or Google "ASUS G74SX-BBK7" (without the quote "" marks)
    For effective HD video editing, a laptop with the following
    -the newer Intel sandy bridge 2720 or 2820 quad processor
    -and nvidia graphics preferably the 460m, 485m is a bit much
    -1280x900 display with OpenGL 2.0-compatible graphics card
    -and 8 or 16 gig ram and Win7 64bit Pro
    -and 2 internal 7200 HDDs minimum


    Trying to use only ONE Hard Drive for Video Editing
    You are a music conductor, with a baton that you use to point to various parts of the

    orchestra... this is like Windows pointing to various parts of the hard drive to do

    Windows housekeeping or to load program segments for various functions
    Now, at the same time and with the same hand... while still using the baton to conduct

    the orchestra... pick up a bow and play a fiddle... this would be doing something with

    your video file at the same time as all the other work
    You as a person cannot do both at the same time with the same hand
    A computer is a LITTLE better, in that it can switch from one kind of task to another

    very quickly... but not quickly enough for EASY video editing
    You need AT LEAST two hard drives (separate drives, never a partition for more) with Windows (or Mac OS) and software

    on your boot drive, and video files on a 2nd drive so the boot drive is not slowed down

    by trying to do everything
    Partition = Crash
    I find that the three drives I use work very well for me, for editing AVCHD video...

    some people use a 4th drive, so video INPUT files are on drive three and all OUTPUT

    files are on drive four... I only bought a mid-tower case instead of a full tower case

    (my bad... but had to fit in the space available on my office desk!) so I use the three

    drives that will fit
    Depending on your exact hardware (motherboard brand & model AND USB2 enclosure brand &

    model AND external hard drive brand & model) AND the type of video file, you may... or

    may NOT... be able to use an external USB2 hard drive for SD (Standard Definition)

    video editing
    Steve Grisetti in the Premiere Elements forum and

    Jim Simon in the Premiere Pro forum use USB

    externals for editing
    A USB3 hard drive connected to a motherboard with USB3 is supposed to be fast enough

    for video editing (I don't have such, so don't know) but eSata DOES have a fast enough

    data transfer for video editing... I have not used the eSata Dock below... for

    reference only, YMMV and all the usual disclaimers

    OK... WinXP is perfect for P6.5... but for "effective" video editing, you still need at least 2 hard drives

    Better stay with 6.5 in your case, if you want to continue using an OS that has been buried for many years and is not supported and does not meet requirements for CS5.X
