Hello,

I want to get a mac laptop to use with CS6 Premiere.
Can the new macbook air handle CS6 Premiere or do I need a macbook pro?

Macbook air has:
2.2GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.2GHz
And could get 8GB 1600MHz LPDDR3 SDRAM
OR 8GB of 1866MHz LPDDR3 onboard memory with retina display (need retina display?)?

Can CS6 Premiere run well with:
8GB 1600MHz LPDDR3 SDRAM?
OR 8GB of 1866MHz LPDDR3 onboard memory?

OR if needed, I could get a Macbook Pro 16GB 1866MHz LPDDR3 SDRAM (refurbished) but hoping a macbook air would be powerful enough.

Would 256GB Flash Storage be sufficient?
OR do I need 256GB PCIe-based Flash Storage?

Anything else necessary?

Thanks for feedback on this.
Robin

It really depends on what you're editing. You might be good with SD and full HD footage with light effects work.

Does anyone out there know someone who has worked with CS6 Premiere Pro with only 8GB RAM? I'll probably only use full HD footage and basic moves on stills and light effects.

Does having many hours of footage on an external drive (simple Seagate Backup Plus 4TB, USB 3 drive) slow down the access time?

I already have an iMac 2012 with 3.1 GHz Intel Core i7, 16GB Memory. NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 512 MB, and 256GB storage but want to use a laptop with CS6 Premiere Pro to be more mobile.
