What’s more important when considering a laptop for video editing? Processor Speed or Hard Drive capacity? And what should I have, at least, to opperate Final Cut Pro without pulling my hair out? 500 MHz? 1.5 GHz? 1.6? And for HD: 60 GB, 80 GB? And am I going to have to start looking for External Hard Drives? 😕
Thanks. I’ve been trying to gather as much info as I can. Seems you’re right. Final Cut Pro needs a lot of speed to render in real time. And it looks like I can get external hard drives for extra space if need be.
