Hi there, I have configured a laptop through pc specialist.com, and am looking for opinions on it.
It will primarily be for video editing, and my workflow involves a lot of Adobe dynamic link, jumping from Premiere to After Effects to Photoshop. Occasional 3d, but not much. Yet.
I want to start working with higher bit rate codecs, and raw cinema-dng files. Do you think this will be up to the task? I'm trying to stay around the price of a mac book, so around £2000.
Thanks for the help,
Noel

It's a great laptop with powerful specs,but if you aren't planing to play games(on the highest settings),then you then I recommend getting a less powerful GPU and upgrading the HDD instead. (Go for a 7200RPM model instead)
