Cheers oliver. Figured that may be the case. Is it better with the i7? Do you know? If not, does anyone else know?

I encode using QT7 to ProRes 422 then drop the folders into my event as keyword collections. I turn off background rendering. I actually use the waveforms whilst I edit. I turn thumbnail images on my clips and use the waveform option and I find them useful a lot of the time so am not really willing to turn those off. Although this may not be what you mean by waveform cache.

My timeline is 720p50 (I think that['s the correct term for it... basically 1240x720 at 50fps).

Basically it is exhausting having to edit through treacle. I'm not sure I can suffer it over years so I am hoping that because my machine is old I am suffering. It is hard to believe a bit of software like this can't be run optimally on some machine, even if mine is too old and wasn't even top end at the time of purchase.
