Looking for a multi-media high-performance laptop, Perferably a PC, Help? Topic: Media research software
June 26, 2019 / By Heathcliff
Question: I need a laptop(64-bit) that can handle Adobe Premiere and other editing software, as well as HD Footage. I realize Mac's are better for the kind of things I do, but I work much better with PC's. I'm thinking about the Dell inspiron 15 (1545) with the Intel® Core™2 Duo processor. This is in fact my first time buying a computer so other suggestions are welcome. Price isn't so much an issue but under 1,000$ is perferable. I really just need a laptop that I can work fast on with the least crashes/lag and other issues that could possibly occure(This computer is going to be specifically for video editing/film-making/etc).. Please and thank you :) Ok so after doing some research I find the Dell Studio 1749 & the Sony VAIO EB series seem like good ones. What do you think?

Sony Vaio is a good laptop for that sort of thing. I can't afford it so I had to settle for an HP.

ASUS N82JQ-B2 NoteBook Intel Core i7 740QM(1.73GHz) 14" 4GB Memory DDR3 1066 500GB HDD 7200rpm BD Combo NVIDIA GeForce GT 335M $1,149.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as... check it out & let me know how it stacks up against the hp & should portability not be such a big issue, a 15.6" screen size offers much more options example: ASUS G53JW-A1 for $1400 http://www.agearnotebooks.com/asusg53jw-... you can customize to select a blu ray optical drive for about $130 extra

once you place funds right into a gaming laptop like the Alienware you're paying varied funds for intense velocity 3-D photos which you quite do no longer decide for for video enhancing. For video enhancing you elect for a quickly CPU and many RAM and not easychronic area. once you're into video enhancing you are able to't have too lots RAM and you will continuously be out of HD area.

DO NOT get a Mac computer. I don't even know if this is relevant to your question, but I'm telling you they're WAY overrated. Everyone thinks they're sooooo cool and all that and blah blah blah but I'm telling you they really are AWFUL. All they really have is a good screen. Everything else sucks

2- Starting with 2, because the reasoning for it is necessary for step 1 and your GPU should always be your main component if you game of use programs that use GPU (CAD does) If you can afford the 780 in the build go for it, it's alone in its's class with the titan in single GPU performance, GTX 770 is basically a 680 with a better cooler and a new bios and paying high price for old tech always feels like it ages faster. 690 is older tech and with the new price and crossfire drivers on HD 7990 it's out of the dual GPU competition, same stands for 660ti. 1- If you decide to water cool, then a very overclocked I5 4670K would do the job (I replaced the 3770K from your list cause you put the new I7 and old I5) know that the overclocked I5 on water wont hold you back but If you dont get the water loop then with a GTX 780 on air go with the 4770K to make sure it's not restrained. 3- In a high performance setup RAM is more important than just a size. Most new high end X87 motherboard will take up to 2800MHz modules with OC or more, but those are extremely pricy. If you want high end aim for some 2400Mhz CL9 sticks, or if you look for more budget while remaning in the high performance you can go for 2133MHz CL9 sticks which are seriously very cheap atm for the high performance they are compared to what they used to cost. 4- Your storage plan seems ideal, I recommend a 256GB SSD because they are much faster than their 128GB equivalents at least that is very apparent on the sandforce controller based SSD's (most except samsung). So look at prices and pick one on special you can find, check some disk benchmarks (available anywhere with some search on net). For the storage drive be sure to check for a disk with lots of cache (64Mb pref) which is usually a very good indicator of speed. 5- You look up all excellent cases, but in very different price ranges !!! Pick the one with the features you want the most, and remember to compare size, you place on the same list a corsair 900D HUGEEEE and 330R too ! but the other cases are more focused on the outside and full tower, all are big and will have the required place for all components you might want, but will you have the space in your home ? 6- Order your PC without the keyboard if you cant decide yet, go to a store, try keyboards with the cherry MX switches for what you'd like. I recommend trying those and getting the feel of them and them you are 100% sure you have the best suited keyboard for you. 7- Mouse comes to a simple question to me: Are you left handed ? NO→Razer Abyssus (or mirror) YES→Razer DeathAdder 8- The mobo: -needs to withstand heat & if possible a power outage: All X87 (overclocking, high end) boards are though to try to dissipate heat. For power outages you will need to look into a UPS. The board cant do a thing about it. -USB 3.0, 2+ hard drives, 2+ optical drives, extra fans, fast ethernet port(s), dual graphics cards, 4 RAM slots: All those features will be on all high end boards. Even if you went for a micro ATX smaller board they would still be there. As for ethernet you dont need 2 ports unless you plan to do some special networking share setup and all recent boards have built in gigalan. -*maybe watercooling space*: This would be all about the case, the motherboard is irrelevant ;) -bluetooth (probably 4.1*newest), WiFi a/b/g/n (ac *newest/prototype-ish sometimes WiFi gets better speeds...): At the moment I think only one single high end X87 motherboard that supports overclock comes with dedicated wi-fi (the MSI M-Power). However, usually you plug in an extension card in a PCI slot to give you PC those capabilities if you want them. You should consider the M-Power if you will go for liquid cool and need wireless capabilities. 9-Again, I recommend looking into it and reading lots, for High end systems as of late ive been recommending Korean 1440P monitors because of the extreme resolution. I say take a look at amazon or ebay and see what's suits your needs. 10- Yes at least bronze rated, all depending on what GPU solution you end up using and if you go for 4770K or 4670K as of now it looks like 800W minimum for what this is looking like. 11-Sure windows if it's what runs the software you want to run. I however recommend professional edition > ultimate. I don't think the price difference is justified for features such as "remote backup" or a bundled "locker". security: whichever free AV you want if you care to use one, for awhile i used avast and MSE but tbh I think prevention and smart use of the PC is the best way to go. cloud storing software: most (all tbh) providers for those services offer a web-based interface to connect to your online storage. You usually dont need to install software to be using this. stream software: X-Split is a part of x-fire and is made to go with twitch
