Sager or Celvo are the only ssensible solutions. You can configure a nice notebook for less than $ 3 K.
You can forget about a 12" notebook, unless you know of a Sager or Clevo in that size with 1920 x 1080 resolution.
Hi Harm, Thankyou for setting me straight.
After researching this forum and your website i think i would be much better suited building my own PC for video editing and then buying a small economical netbook/notebook later on to update my M300 toshiba, which is still going strong for basic word documents and internet surfing etc.
I have been reading through all the builds and the topics regarding i7-950 vs 2600K and the various graphics cards. Quite simply, at this stage i'm not sure which build to go with. It appears you are in favour of the i7-950 and related mobo rather than adopting the 2600k and p8p67 mobo. Can you convince me one way or the other which way to build? Or what detail would make the decision for me? Regardless of the CPU+MOBO+RAM am i right thinking that most of the other components can be unchanged? HDD , GPU etc?
Also, i have never built a PC before, but i am actually quite excited and looking forward to the experience, however are you able to advise which is the best place to buy the components from online or store for delivery to Sydney Australia? Also, if i get into trouble trying to sort out the installation is there a good resource for help putting the computer together correctly?!
I will try to put together a shopping list to order from Newegg and post this up soon for comments.
How does this look for a Sandy Bridge Setup- put together from NewEgg.
Otherwise, throw out the 2600k for the i7-950 and a good x58 mobo. , also switch over the RAM to compatible 12Gb.
I'm currently writing an article about tapeless workflows, backups and the impact on system design, Sandy Bridge or other. I hope to publish it today. Just hang on.
Hi Harm, thankyou for that article and other posts. At this stage I am still inclined towards the 2600K Build. This is my latest shopping list.
I'm also looking for recommendations for a good internal blu ray burner / reader.
This computer is to be hooked up to either the Dell U2410 or U2711 monitor at this stage.
Any comments or suggestions would be most welcome before I pull the trigger.
