Which Apple laptop is best for Vegas 12?
I am planning to get a laptop so that I can make better videos, and the only program I see that could fit all of my needs is Vegas 12. The only question I need answered is which laptop would be the best pick for it at a good price? I look up to Apple more than I do with Windows for some reason. I tried looking this up on the internet, but it doesn’t just tell me what to get. Instead, I get sales from Amazon or Ebay selling laptops or Vegas 12. I don’t understand the technical stuff, so can somebody please put it blunt and simple on what type of Apple laptop to buy? Thanks.
I just realized Apple isn’t the best pick for Vegas Pro 12, so what laptop in general would be good for this program?
How can I word this without it being considered abuse in Yahoo Answers.
What you are stating is that you want to throw out any advantage the very overpriced MacBooks have in order to run Vegas Pro 12 on it.
Vegas Pro 12 is Windows based. There is no OSX version. Garage Band is a scaled down Sony product (Vegas Pro is the fancy one). So, you want to dual boot a Macbook into Windows to run Vegas Pro 12, where a Windows laptop has more performance at a lower price tag.
Of course the internet does not tell you what to get because nobody throws money away so easily.
You seem to respect hype more than actual specifications.
Now, I do not mean to be abusive, but your question is rather outrageous and blind.
You should really be using a tower PC anyway, but MacPro 15 is what has $1000 Windows laptop performance and this shows its specifications:
and this for the CPU and second tab for the graphics:
You will also want to dump more money into DRAM, and for a copy of Windows to make the software work in dual boot plus the cost of software. Be prepared to spend close to $3000 by the time you are done for a $1500 setup.
If you want to be smart, you buy a top brand Windows laptop and save a stack of money.
Sony, Samsung, Asus, Lenovo Ideapad Y series, MSI
looking for quad core 3rd gen i7 and equal or better than GT 650M with 8GB or more of DRAM.
If it is a little thicker, live with it because you need a computer case anyway to carry around expensive laptops that break when dropped or shaken around. Mac’s also break exactly the same way. Best to go 1080p screens or x900 in a 17.3″ is enough.
Here are 9 nice ones:
and at Lenovo.com, a Y500 1080p
But if you are intent on spending a fortune for midgrade-only performance, get a MacBook Pro 15 with 8GB RAM, a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium OEM, and the software to do dual booting or however that is done.
Per your update:
I provided the higher quality brand names. You are aiming for CPU, Graphics, and RAM performance to a price tag you can live with. Quad core i7 and GT 640M or better and 8+GB RAM would be your goal. The Y500 at Lenovo meets that. You have to just look up the CPU and Graphics in the tables.
921 or higher for a G3D score and 6000 or higher in passmark score would do well.
Samsung Series 7 Gamer NP700G7C-T01US is around for about $1300
Depends on your spending point.
A very nice MSI for $900
Motherboards in laptops are custom by model. You need to state the model to find the replacement motherboard. You only change a laptop motherboard if it is broken or defective. There is no such thing really as an upgrade of motherboards in a laptop, unless it is a soldered cpu, in which case, it will cost more than a new laptop.
What’s the difference between SSD and HDD in a laptop?
Hi, just wondering what the real difference is between SSDs and HDDs are in laptops.
Any disadvantages of either? I’ve heard speed is a big difference…
Thanks for any help!
Pros of a SSD- Faster, longer battery life of your laptop, and less likely chance of the SSD failing versus an HDD.
Cons of a SSD- More expensive, way less capacity.
Pros of a HDD- More storage space, cheaper.
Cons- Way slower than an SSD, higher chance of failure ( HDD failure is rare in any case fyi), and drains more power from your battery.
Things to consider when buying either.
SSD- Make sure it has TRIM and your running Windows 7.
HDD- If you want a longer battery life and can take a performance hit, get a 5400 rpm drive. If you want a faster drive, get a 7200 rpm drive.
Now, here is where things get interesting. They now have hybrid HDD+SSD drives.
There faster than a normal HDD, but you dont sacrifice much HDD space. There priced higher than a regular SSD of similar size but they are considerably faster.
Here are the 3 drives that are out right now. They have gotten really good reviews so id suggest these over anything. Http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=hybrid+SSD&x=0&y=0
