Have to bite the bullet and get a new machine -- laptop. Will be posting questions about some of the specs, the first of which is about the processor. The gaming laptops I'm looking at mostly have the i7-4700M process (and I'll add RAM, separate graphics board, good HDDs or SDD). The processors are about 2.4GHz, with Turbo to 3.x. Any opinions out there? Just for Premiere, not for Pro, and not real heavy stuff. Will upgrade to PE11 or PE12 with the laptop changeover. TIA!
On this, I can offer what I have read. Lots of online articles. Here is one to start off your thread on laptop processors considerations.
That article seems helpful. Makes me wonder if an i5-4200H would work just fine?
I would think i5 until someone can give you a compelling reason why you need more in your particular situation gaming versus video editing.
