Looking for a suitable Windows laptop to run CS6--especially Preimiere pro. HP is preferred while other suggestions are welcome. Hard to find ones with Intel® Core™2 Duo or AMD Phenom® II processor and the supported NVIDIA cards for GPU accelleration already together.
Don't know about HP, but basically limit your search to:
Keep in mind that the Adobe requirements are 'Minimum requirements' and lack realism. They allow you to install the software, but using it effectively is a completely different matter.
Sidebar: It completely escapes me why the following reply in post #1 from Bill was removed:
Your best bet is to go to the experts in video editing and get a customized laptop from ADK. Incidentally unless you want to be terribly disappointed and wait forever to get anything done do not use Adobe's minimum requirements. Take a look at PPBM5 test results and the first thing you should do is select the "Computer type" Tab and select "Laptops" and see 53 test reports and see how they rank. Core 2 Duo is now in the antique class. Notice that a few dual core units appear at the very bottom of the list. CS6 is very demanding Also notice that two disk drives (the second drive should be a full speed 7200 rpm drive) are the absolute minimum
yeah--why was that removed??? I marked that it was correct and helpful I believe, Thanks everyone for your comments--greatly appreciated! I love that tool that was posted, its great. ANd yeah-I just pasted the requirements from Adobe. Looking for student laptops.
