    Editing laptop build- Any help or suggestions are very welcome

    noeldarsee Level 1

      I'm in the market for a new mobile workstation, for Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop, C4D, Red Giant plug ins, and perhaps to start using Da Vinci in the future. I am also going to be working with RAW CDNG files, as well as ProRes 4444 soon, and I need something that can handle the workload. I travel a lot for work, it has to be a laptop. won't be used for anything but video/ photography work.

      I've put together a machine on pcspecialist.com, so if anyone had any insights on things that it is lacking, or things that I don't actually need on there, I'd  love to hear them. I don't know loads about what's going on under the computer's hood. thanks in advance. Noel
