Just looking at the Dell M6600 as a possible new purchase for CS 5.5. I am looking at the NVIDIA 3000m card and 16 gig of RAM along with one of the i7 chips. Will this system be a high quality setup or should I look else where. I only need one drive as I edit from several external drives.
You need at LEAST two drives, unless all your externals are eSATA 7200 disks. You can't use USB2 disks. You may get by with USB3 externals.
For the rest it will work, albeit at a hefty price, it being a Dell.
