So right now I am working in CS5 on a Mac Pro equivalent hackintosh and all is well.
I have a series of jobs that require edits to be done daily for broadcast as well as a final project within a day of the events, so on the road.
Macbooks of any sort are out. I can't get my RAID on amongst other things.
So I am looking for a portable workstation for CS5. I was looking at the new Sandy Bridge based notebooks, especially this fella:
Proper GPU for Mercury engine, 1920x1080 display and 15 inch. I work in the forest and out in the boonies and portability is important. But Sandy Bridge was just recalled so.....
I'd like to keep it $1500 or less. It needs to have a matte display, mercury playback (at least hackable) card and eSata. The W510 looks nice, but is kind of $$ for a non 1080 display and 2gb ram stock.
Any recommendations? I need it last week.
