I’m currently using Adobe Premiere Pro CS4, After effects and photoshop on a HP workstation laptop. I can’t preview 1080 footage if i’ve done absolutely anything to it and transcoding takes an age.
I’ve just been given the go-ahead to upgrade both hardware and software, so i’m about to upgrade to CS5, but i have no idea what computer to get. Advice on the web is patchy at best!
ANy help in this area would be greatly appreciated. I have to be able to order this in the UK…

For what it is worth, I recently upgraded to CS5 and had a local computer company put together a pcbased onVideoguys guide (http://www.videoguys.com/Guide/E/Videoguys+DIY8+Sneak+Peek+Work+in+Progess+Coming+this+Fall/0x094b1737e0a06c495e5178a167fbdbd7.aspx)
This worked well for me. I am in Canada and had no problem getting the components needed.

Last May I ordered a new HP and upgraded to CS5. I just got their performance one and topped out the graphics card and memory. It smokes Full AVCHD faster than I used to edit SD. Everything is so fast and my work space in AE is huge. I also got the largest monitor they had vs. going tosplit screen and am totally happy with all the above.
I paid about 2,200-2,300 for the computer and ran right around 3 with the upgrade and since I was cleared for more like you are I snuck in a couple1tb externals for storage of HD video. Yhe only thing about the whole upgrade for me was that Esata Externals are finiky with windows 7 for some reason, I haven’t looked into a work around and just ran firewire to them when I need them.
