Will I be able to run programs like After Effects CS6 smoothly and effectivly on a mid- 2010 Macbook Pro 15-inch like this?


The specs are:

Mid 2010

Mac Book Pro 15"Antiglare

2,66Ghz Intel Cote i7

8GB RAM

240 GB OCZ Vertex II SSD disc

NVidia GeForce 330M


(I am looking at it in an auction)


I hope this is the right forum to post this technical question in.

Thanks!

After Effects loves CPU, RAM, and storage. That MacBook Pro has very limited disk capacity and very limited RAM. The CPU is also a bit old now.

Yes, it will run After Effects, but spending the same money on a desktop system will buy you a lot more performance. You have to trade away performance to gain some portability.

I agree with Walter. I'm running After Effects CS6 on a computer like the one that you describe right now, but I always move my project to my desktop computer when it's time to render or when I want to work in 3D.

See this page for information about hardware for After Effects: http://adobe.ly/pRYOuk
