I'm considering to buy a notebook for making HD videos with CS5.
My chioce is more and more becoming the Toshiba's Qosmio X500-143 notebook with a Core i7 Turbo 2,93GHz CPU, 2 500GB SATA HD-s, 8GB RAM, and an NVIDIA GTS460M graphics card with 1,5GB DDR3 RAM.
Please let me know if I'm making a mistake.
Thanks a lot.
Look here: PPBM5 Benchmark
There are a couple Qosmio X500 systems in the list. About 5 - 10 times slower than a fast desktop. Portability/luggability must be important to accept the limited price/performance.
BTW, your turbo speed of 2.93 will only be achieved on single threaded applications in the Arctic, never with multi threaded applications like PR. It is less confusing to use the rated speed of the CPU, which is 1.73.
Thank you Harm,
In our case portability has more importance.
