Default Good notebook for Edius.

Hello.
I am a Edius products reseller in Spain. I have a customer working with EDIUS NX, SP and HD workstations ensambled by my company. Now, I must supply to them a notebook for workin with edius.
Budget is not high, and I am thinking in an ASUS notebook ...
Any suggestion for best compatibility or trouble-free ?

Hi,
all Core 2 based notebooks with separate vga card should work, even for HD.
Hewlett Packard Series NX9420 or NX9440 is a good choise.

I used regular Dell Laptops (Inspiron) for two years and could get 7 layers of SD DV footage playing in realtime and it would play with no problem.

It would also play 2 layers of HD with no problem.

It was a dual core CPU at a spped of 1.73 and a 120 Gig 5400 HD.

Anything matching that or above it should work nicely for your customers :)

I like the DV9000 series consumer version as it has a Express card slot vice a PCMCIA slot and I can add two large eSata II external enclosures for over a terrabyte of extra storage(easily hot swapped to a desktop machine, also the newer ones have a HDMI port.

Incase you needed a quick answer, from HP, either OS is available to order with.

Hi!

Use a Lenovo(IBM) Thinkpad with Ultra-Bay. You can easy use 2 HDDs. The bay uses SATA and the drive can be changed while the notebook is running. And most of the lenovo Thinkpads have a non reflective display-surface!

I've got a core duo (2.16), and I use it with 5 and 6 streams of DVCPRO HD all the time off of eSATA drives. Never hiccups.
