    Mac specifications - I don't want to have to render to preview

    Jacqueline Collis

      Hi there,


      I've got Adobe Premiere CS5 running on my Mac but I don't want to have to render to preview files, it is so time consuming. Can anyone recommend what I need to upgrade to improve this (will more RAM or hard-disk help?). I have 319.21GB storage wtih 14.8 GB free at the moment. Or, do I need a new computer?
