I have no problems running those apps on a P4 with 1 GB of memory. If your Core Duo with twice the memory isn't cutting it, I'd look to configuration issues before deciding you need better hardware.
Thanks for the reply, Jim, I appreciate your time.
When you say configuration issues what do you think I should look at on my current system?
For starters, one of the biggest mistakes people make is using their editing rig for other tasks. Ideally, you'll need two computers, one for editing and one for everything else. Often times it's the "everything else" loaded onto the editing rig that slows things down.
So, if your laptop is used for other things, maybe a new computer would be a good idea. But if you already have a desktop for "everything else", then just make sure nothing is installed onto the laptop but the programs you need for video production.
thank you again -- last question. i notice that adobe says that premire pro cs3 and after effects cs3 are certified for 32-bit systems only. do you happen to know if these cs3 apps also work fine with a 64 bit system? if you are not sure, perhaos i should post a new message with this specific question.
Some folks get it to work, others have issues. You take your chances using a 64 bit OS.
