If PPro will work at all, some of the screen will not display
Some ideas for a Laptop Video Editing PC from past discussions
For effective HD video editing, a laptop with the following
-at least the Intel sandy bridge 2720 or 2820 quad processor
-and nvidia graphics such as the 460m with 1Gig video ram
-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
Yeah, I got everything but the screen resolution. Maybe I should just download a trial and see how it works. Thanks for the links.
am I going to go nuts trying to use it on such a small screen?
In my experience, yes. A producer I work for has a 17" screen (same res as yours) and even that is agonizingly small.
A 22" 1920 x 1080 really is the bare minimum in my view.
Try it. CS6 is a tad better on low-res displays than CS5.5. You will want to memorize the maximise window shortcut, though. I ran it on my 13'3 MacBook Pro during the testing cycle and it worked surprisingly well. And, best of all, I'm still within shouting distance of sanity.
