I need a Laptop until Tomorrow! Thunderbolt? Screen?
on Sep 16, 2013 at 11:15:08 pm

Hi, I need your help. I have a 670 i3930k/gtx ... I use it for video editing, premiere, after, Resolve etc. But now I need a laptop for travel. The thing is that I'm going to California 3-6 months.

The first question is 15 "or 17"? Actually I do not know if 17 "is plenty to go around moving, do not remember how big they were, but I would say that much ..

Now edit much h.264 files, but is advancing both the audiovisual world next year any camera will shoot with the new codes H.265, RAW, 4K, etc.. And the thing is that last longer than a year.

UPDATE

After a time thinking and without knowing that to select, I return to ask to help to the forum. Up to yesterday i want this model buys:

Sager NP8265-S (Clevo P150SM)

-15.6" FHD 16:9 "Matte Type" Super Clear Ultra Bright LED Anti-Glare Sager Screen w/ 95% NTSC Color Gamut (1920x1080)
-Intel i7-4700MQ
-NVIDIA® GTX 780M [4GB]
-16GB RAM
-mSATA(SLOT 1): 240GB Crucial M5 mSATA SSD
-mSATA(SLOT 2): Empty
-Hard Drive(SLOT 1): 1TB 7200RPM [SATA II - 3GB/s
- Optical Drive Bay: 6X Blu-Ray Reader + 8X DVDRW/CDRW Super Multi Combo Drive (Sager). Maybe i'll change it for hdd or ssd whit Optical Bay.
-2+ Hours / 6.83 lbs
-No THUNDERBOLT

$1800

I like this much, for the power that it offers, l grand quantity of storage that you can put. Another Model:

-17.3" FHD 16:9 "Matte Type" Super Clear Ultra Bright LED Anti-Glare Screen w/ 72% NTSC Color Gamut (1920x1080)
-Intel i7-4700MQ
-NVIDIA® GTX 770M [2GB]
-16GB RAM
-Hard Drive(SLOT 1): 256GB Internal SSD (SATA III - 6/GBs)
-Hard Drive(SLOT 2):
- Optical Drive Bay: 6X Blu-Ray Reader + 8X DVDRW/CDRW Super Multi Combo Drive (Sager). Maybe i'll change it for hdd or ssd whit Optical Bay.
-3+ Hours / 9.90 lbs
-YES THUNDERBOLT

$1800

This is bigger and hevier, but it has Thunderlbolt. I have doubts, have seen portable with Quadro K3100m, K2100m. But the truth seems to me to be very little compared with the GForce. And Macbook Retina too expensive 2013. $ 2,000 without dedicated graphics, but high resolution screen and thinderbolt. If someone me can justify that it is worth maybe i can thinh about it.

Help Please i want to buy it today or tomorrow.

Not sure why you said this. The stock w530 is, for sure, inadequate. But, once you build a custom configuration,it beats those gaming laptops hands down.

The W530 is an Ivy Bridge Laptop and not the current Haswell series. Haswell mobile CPU's have far better performance than Ivy. The 2 laptops' the original poster link are Haswell. The Ivy in no way beats the Haswell models fully configured or not.

The haswells are only marginally faster than the Ivy bridge....
http://whatswithjeff.com/intel-haswell-vs-ivy-bridge-benchmark/

The real difference between the 22nm die shrink and the new architecture is in power efficiency.
Bottom line: if you have deep pockets, go for the haswells. if you have a budget, go for the Ivy Bridge.

What might tip the scales for the haswells are the inclusion of Thunderbolt.

Haswell is showing a 15% or more increase over Ivy Bridge Mobile and and Desktop in both audio and video testing here. Using a unknown benchmarking quantity/link does not change that. If you want to see real benchmarks for CPU that also state a 15% difference in improvement then this is the correct place:

http://www.anandtech.com/show/7003/the-haswell-review-intel-core-i74770k-i5...

Most are not related to media content creation but the H264 encoding yet the over all performance testing is inline with our media testing here.

All these benchmarks are for lesser Ivy Bridge processors than the 3840.I think you'll find that the 3840 compares very favorably to the 4770, especially in light of the higher graphics processor frequency.

The Higher graphics Frequency ahs no bearing on Adobe, Blackmagic, or other editing software performance. There is no GPU acceleration with the Intel GPU. There is also no way a Mobile CPU compares with the Desktop CPU in performance. The 4770 is desktop and has way better performance then Ivy Mobile. Anandtech doesn't bother to bench Mobile against Desktop CPU because there is not point due to that and it's not a Apples to Apple test. They are showing the progression of performance of the Desktop CPU's.

However you can use the Architecture performance difference to relate to a Apples to Apples Mobile CPU's difference since the architecture doesn't change from Mobile to Desktop. This means the 3840QM does not and cannot outperform the equivalent 4900MQ. BTW you can reference some nice comparison benchmarks here which is also inline with internal testing though our testing shows 15%+ for mobile. This also includes comparison to desktop CPU's which shows Mobile is not close to those.

I like these:

15" & 17" Asus series w/ Thunderbolt + RAID options, w/ NVIDIA GPU.

http://www.asus.com/ROG_ROG/G75VX/
http://www.asus.com/ROG_ROG/G55VW/


Dual NVIDIA GPUs, but USB3 only. I have the earlier y500 (3rd Gen i7) and runs Resolve great. If you disable SLI in software shows up as 2 GPUs!

Clevo also has a Haswell shell with a discreet GPU opion with Thunderbolt. If you want that option look for a Clevo P370SM shell.

The Clevo is NIIIIICE! I spec'd a fully loaded one out at almost 6K! Time to start saving those Pennies... Have been happy with the Lenovo though, at a MUCH cheaper price. I had a hard time trying to decide which was better: Thunderbolt or dual GPUs when making my original purchase. (Asus vs Lenovo) The Clevo would solve that issue at a much higher price.

Hi, been looking all laptops that hais commented and really is a huge mess. I still have many doubts, many people do you recommend a MacBook Pro but I see the specifications and are pretty bad. The MSI are the most configurable and post a better price, also offer the best warranty. I've also watched some Alienware. I keep listening to your advice.

Eric-ADK could talk to you in any way?

Thanks

I don't know what your NLE software is, but, HP, Dell and Lenovo are the only systems qualified for use with Media Composer. Any other systems aren't qualified and won't be supported by Avid.

Right now I'm working with Premiere Pro, After Effects CS6, Resolve. In the future I would like to work with Avid. The truth that is difficult because all laptops seem the same.

The Clevo laptops work fine with Avid if you move to that.

That's fine....but, if you have trouble with Media Composer, you're on your own.
