Trying to decide whether to build a machine or buy a laptop. If you currently edit on a laptop, I'd liked to read your feedback. What Laptop you own? The editing application you use? How does it work? Pros, Cons, whatever you have for an opinion.
For the past 6 years, I've kept my Dell 8100 desktop running, and editing with Studio. Keeping this combo going has been quite a challenge, with all the bugs and workarounds, like owning a car only I can drive. I'm finally ready to upgrade my ride, and get into a higher end editing program that works out of the box. Ahhh, just the thought of it makes me weepy.
Originally, I thought I would build a desktop machine. Then I started thinking portability, why not a Laptop? I like Mac Book Pro 17", 2GB Ram, Duo Core, w/Final Cut Express. The other way to go is a Sony/Vegas combo, or Toshiba or a Lenovo running Liquid Pro. Just like to hear from anyone working on Laptops. Thanks.
