Hello, I'm broke and am considering buying a used Apple MacBook MA700LL/A 13.3" Laptop (2.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 1 GB RAM. I have premiere pro cs5 and shoot on a canon 60d. My question is will I be able to work with this laptop. I don't care if it's really slow I just want to know if the laptop can handle the information and be able to edit the video. Can anyone help? Thanks!
Probably won't work, due to (I think) the screen resolution being too small for the program to fit (see below)
Also, a dual core CPU is WAY too weak for that kind of footable, and only 1 Gig of ram is just not going to be enough... people struggle with 4 Gig
Is the OS on that even the 64bit that is required?
Below is for the Windows world, but the requirements are there
Some ideas for a Laptop Video Editing PC from past discussions
-NOTE only 1 hard drive in above, so you will need to add a 2nd drive or use eSata for video files
-or Google "ASUS G74SX-BBK7" (without the quote "" marks)
For effective HD video editing, a laptop with the following
-the newer Intel sandy bridge 2720 or 2820 quad processor
-and nvidia graphics preferably the 460m, 485m is a bit much
-1280x900 display with OpenGL 2.0-compatible graphics card
-and 8 or 16 gig ram and Win7 64bit Pro
-and 2 internal 7200 HDDs minimum
