Hi,
Beside Mac, what kind of lap top and requirement for running AE program production-ally.
Thanks
Eddie

If you want a laptop that can handle AE, you need to look at a brand name (HP with the Elite Book series or Dell with xps or Alienware) Or at a Falcon or Origin PC for a custom build. These are expensive machines though.

Another vote for Alienware Laptop.

Also cross check for the specs recommended .

And you also need to know that although AE will run on a laptop, it isn't really at home on a laptop. AE likes a boatload of memory, lots of processors and certain types of video cards... none of which a laptop does a particularly good job of accommodating.

You just want to be able to run AE bare-bones out in the field with no frills? Go for the laptop.

You want to make AE really sing? I'm afraid you'll want a desktop, and be prepared to open the wallet.

One more thing- with a desktop you'll most likely get more for the money than with a laptop.
