the 470 and 485 run too hot and you have to turn off MPE
trust me on this we sell the same laptop basically.
and it does not matter if its the 950 in there or the 980x..
When you say it doesn't matter, do you mean that the choice between the cards you mention won't afftect the performance of PPro?
sorry for not being more clear.
the heat issue does not matter if its a 950 or a 980x still overheats with the other 2 cards...
I had been looking at this system with an i7-2630QM Processor ( 6MB L3 Cache, 2.00GHz), but just read other posts "Which Laptop should I buy" where Harm indicated that anything less than the 9xx processors is too slow.
What is the result of a too-slow processor? Does the PPro run slower, does the program crash, rendering issues? Can anyone identify what net effect would be? How seriously would the program be affected? I, like most folks, want acceptable performance at the best price.
The help is much appreciated.
it really depends on your workflow and codecs.
DV/HDV would be ok on it. avchd can get funky even with an ext esata drive.
with Adobe CS5 wanting an Nvidia card anything less than a 460 is a tad to very slow.
to give you an idea of mobile vs desktop processors in a laptop look here
whilst for audio is going to be a ggod correlation for video.
1 note i have to mention for audio the faster GHz dual outperforms the slower quads
for video this is not true..
either way you can see the vast difference
The question was about the mobile versions, not the regular versions. I agree with the 460 regular, but with regards to the mobile version I would opt for the 470M . The 485M is not worth the extra price IMO.
