mikejohn60499521 has a good laptop suggestion. You see, the current MacBook Pros' problem with the Adobe Creative Cloud suite is the GPU: The ones that are equipped with a discrete AMD GPU also have integrated Intel HD or Iris graphics that cannot be disabled at all. This causes error messages and crashes when any GPU acceleration is enabled. The only current fix is to lock Premiere to the software-only mode in those particular laptops.
Thank you for the suggestions. Very interesting.
I guess I'd have to get over the build quality and operating system, being a creative and having used Apple for the last two decades (almost).
I shall investigate more…
There seems to be a suggestion that an update in March fixed the issue with the processor and Prem Pro. Do you guys know much about that?
