Highest HD speed on Apple Notebooks is now only 5400rpm.
1) Adobe and the starters guide on this forum recommend 7200rpm as a minimum speed for video editing. Is this unquestioning dogma when a new technology 5400rpm data dense drive is more than sufficient?
2) Are newer 5400rpm hard drives fast enough?
3) Larger capacity hard drives have higher data density so does this compensate for the lower speed?
4) How does it cope with high definition video capture and editing, including full HD (1080)?
5) One of Apple's selling points is that it is used by the media community, including video/film production - is this still the case?
6) Has any one ran PC video editing software and done video capture on an Intel Mac notebook in bootcamp or parallels? I'm considering this having invested in Premier Pro for Windows so would like this to work on an Intel Mac running windows.
Please don't reply to say:
- better off getting a desktop - I'm only interested in a notebook solution
- about the merits of different platforms, operating systems and software and why I'm getting a Mac. (I'm getting a Mac to broaden my skillset as it can run both Windows and MacOS.)
