One of the fringe benefits of editing on a MBP, apart from the ridiculous price. It is just underpowered, lacks eSATA connections and does not come with sufficient memory. You can partly reduce the lag by getting 8 GB extra memory at the absurd price of € 250 per 4 GB if it fits (on a PC that costs only € 40), but the main problem is MAC OS with mediocre threading to say the least, and the lack of eSATA connections, so you are forced to use the slow FW800 connection.
So youre obviously an apple fan then I see.
By the way it is not 250 for 4gb. Not where Im from anyway. You can get 16 GB for 300ish bucks at ramcity.com.au.
Look for yourself:

The extreme Apple price is obvious.
You can choose an expensive site but there are plenty of other options way cheaper.
Ramcity, Kingstonmemory, OWC etc etc.
What is the point of your contribution anyway or lack thereof? I was looking for help and youre just being totally negative. You may aswell tell me that the 3000 dollar machine I just bought is a piece of garbage and to chuck it in the bin. Youre obviously just an apple hater with nothing much positive to contribute.
Not an Apple hater per se, just showing you your money could have been spent more wisely, but that is a choice Apple lovers make willingly. Well, if you want to continue spending money, get some Thunderbolt components, a good Quadro 4000 card, memory and several disks to make it work. I guess you can make it work for an investment below $ 10 K.

That sums it up nicely.
That sums it up nicely.
1. Im new to this industry and I dont have any connections and so I am reliant on finding out as much as I can online before making a purchase. This is what I did and I was told many times that my machine would have more than enough power. Theres nothing more I could have done.
2. My system more than meets adobes requirements so perhaps adobe needs to specify what exactly that means. If it means yes the software will work but not very well then they need to tell people that.
3. Im a student and I dont have 10k to blow on technology that will be obsolete in a years time. If I did have 10K I wouldnt spend anymore on this anyway.
4. For the most part adobe software does work well on my machine except for dynamic link but I guess I can live without that anyway. Perhaps Ill try FCP with autoduck. Seems a better way to go anyway.
