It is June 2013. Looking for suggestions for a new laptop to run Adobe Premiere Elements.Any suggestions? In the order of $1000 AUD is about as much as I'd want to spend (less of course is always welcome).
Presuming need good NVIDIA card as priority. Guy in local retail otulet suggested:
This is within the budget and is a good 'gaming' ultrabook apparently (ie graphics, processing, RAM). Open to any useful suggestions.
Good gaming computers do not necessarily make good editing computers. But, considering your specs, this computer should give you plenty of power for editing video.
Though the key variable is, of course, what kind of video you're editing. What model of camcorder is your video coming from and what resolution and format is it?
The biggest challenge is that this is a laptop, which tend to be built for portability rather than power. In fact, laptops often run much slower than desktops that use virtually the same hardware! But this system should still give you plenty of power for editing virtually any consumer video format.
Welcome to the forum.
I feel that the most important aspects for editing video on a laptop are:
I also like a 17" screen, but then my eyes are old and tired, and many get by nicely on a 15" screen.
PS - I just got this laptop, and it's a screamer, but not within the stated budget: http://www.adkvideoediting.com/systems/viewsystem.cfm?recordid=118
