After playing with Permiere Pro some on my laptop, things got really slow with the preview window when I started adding effects. On effect I need to add is to have a layer that plays an animation (many transparent frames) on top of my main video layer.
I have an Acer Aspire 3680-2682 with
2GB of ram
Win XP Pro
Intel Celeron processor 440
GMA 950 graphics card
It's a pretty low-end laptop but it runs pretty fast for other things. Editing seems to be a different situation.
So I just want to have a system that I can use for Premiere Pro. I'm hoping to only spend <600. Really all I need the system to do is to be able to run Premiere Pro at workable speeds, so I'll pay the cheapest I can for something that can do that.
I'd appreciate any suggestions, or even links to good deals.
