    Default Will After Effects CS4 run smoothly on this laptop?

    ..It's a Sony Vaio:

    Processor: Intel Core Dup CPU P8600 @ 2.40ghz
    RAM: 4GB

    My only concern is that the laptop is a Sony Vaio, they are notorious for causing problems with Adobe products. Can you download the trial and give it shot?
    Other than it being a Sony Vaio the specs look ok.

    Download a trial and try it out before parting with any money just in case.

    Hey Chuck, what sort of problems? I do have a desktop PC which I could use too.

    A case of try before you buy.

    I don't think you'll have any trouble running it on that spec. The real trick (and wat costs the money) is render times though.

    Most of the problems with the Vaio had to do with burning DVDs, but there were other codec issues as well causing export problems. Don't know if any of them were After Effects specific. If you do have problems it most likely wont' be with the software.
