MohdNase, that link leads nowhere.
However, isnt there a database where it lists the GPU thats Premiere runs well on/with?

You need to provide more information about your:
- projects - # layers, typical effects, color grading, etc.?
- media - SD, AVCHD, 4k, Scarlet? (this makes a huge difference about the "best fit" hardware choice
Do you have to use a laptop?
Not him... but he did say "I am also open to suggestions on desktops, not just laptops" which is why I posted the ADK link in #4
I've got to read more carefully.
Make that, "Don't use a laptop."
I am using it solely for wedding videography so it quite basic stuff. I am filming on a canon 7d and really just looking or something that I can edit the footage with and put on some light effect/colour grading. I am not able to say what level of effects I will be needing to use as at the minute when i try anything other than basic editing the programme has a stroke. Like I mentioned I have Magic Bullet Looks suite sitting waiting for me but I haven't even had a chance to try it out. One effect I really like but know that it is processor draining is some warp stabiliation . There are certain shots it really lends itself to but I just bought myself a nice monpod and fluid head so shouldn't need that anymore.
Last night I tried downloading Premiere cc onto my girlfriends £500 basic desktop and to my great surprise everthing ran like a dream! (compared to my computer anyway). Is this normal, that a cheap desktop would so comprehensively outperform a 12 month old Macbook Pro? I am wondering if there is an unresolved problem with the macbook itself.
To give you an example, if i have put warp stabilisation on a clip on my macbook I have to put it at 1/4 resolution for it to playback and even then it is extremely choppy and sticky and sometimes crashes the programme. Last night on the budget desktop I was able to put it to full resolution and it played smoothly, just like it would if it had been exported.
Any advice you could give on this would be much appreciated. ive been round the traps with apple and adobe tech guys and neither of them can find anything wrong with the computer or the programme.
I am filming on a canon 7d
That makes a desktop more attractive than a laptop.
I have Magic Bullet Looks suite
That requires a high clock speed, not available in a laptop.
some warp stabiliation
That also indicates a desktop is better than a laptop.
Did you read Tweakers Page - What kind of PC to use?
Thanks, that's good to know!
