    MBP Hardrive capture requirements w/ FW800 External Drive?

    a.daddio

      Hi All,

       

      Im wondering about the hardrive requirements on a 15" Macbook Pro for CS5 Premier Pro. The stated minimum hardrive speed for sd capture is a 7200 rpm HD however my MBP's internal only runs at 5400 rpm. While swapping out the internal HD is not an option, I have a 1tb firewire 800 external drive. Firstly, if I only capture on to this external drive will the entire editing process run smoothly enough?  Is this solution simply a patch or an appropriate resolution?  Furthermore, will I need to have all of my files kept on the external at all times or can I bring them on to my slower internal and work mobiley. Any other comments on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

       

      Thanks
