Can I run Avid Xpress DV on Acer Aspire 5920 laptop?
on Sep 7, 2007 at 5:05:34 pm

I am considering buying an Acer Aspire 5920 laptop with the following spec:
Intel 2 GHz Core 2 Duo T7300 processor
NVIDIA® GeForce 8600M GT 256MB Dedicated
160 GB Hard Drive

(It comes with Vista and I have Windows XP Pro that I can install instead)

My version of Avid is Xpress DV 3.5.

The sound card is a Realtek HD which I know Avid doesn't like. I've read on forums various solutions including just buying a soundblaster card for the express slot.

However the firewire card is by Ricoh and I'm not sure Avid will like it. Normally Avid recommend a Texas Instruments chipset.

If anyone running Avid on this laptop or similar or on a laptop with this type of firewire and audio spec? The laptop has pretty good reviews but I want to make sure it will cope with Avid.

Any help much appreciated otherwise it might have to be the Macbook Pro if I can find enough money.
