Sure it is enough.
I run premiere elements 9 on my MacBook Pro 13'' 4 GB Intel® Core 2 Duo 2.66 GHz, (with some beach balls some times and slow on Scene Line view)
With your specs should work nicely, you should try the trial version.
thanks have installed full copy and play back in time line is good but play back with effects is choppy is this normal ?
In my case the choppy behavior is always present in Scene View with or without effects. I though that was a hardware issue, but with your specs I would expect no choppy behavior.
I don't know if this happens in the windows version.
ill call support in the morning il keep you posted
And don't forget that performance on any system is very dependent on what you're using as source footage.
If your project settings match your camcorder precisely (You'll know, because there will be no red lines above your clips when you add them to your timeline), you'll get much better performance than when you not got your project configured correctly.
It shouldn't be choppy after you have rendered the area you are viewing.
A red line above the clips in the timeline indicated needs rendering and a green line indicated rendered
Also reduce the size of the preview window, maybe your video 'card' is not fast enough or is using some of the computer memory?
Also if you are trying to have everything on one hard disk you will always get chopping as the poor little thing is trying to do 3 things at once!
3 disks is up to 10 times better, 1=Program & pagefile, 2=media, 3=project files
thank you so much did not know about the rendering now works perfectly
Thanks the rendering did the job!!!
Now, I'm going to the mall to get my third disk
