Just bought a new Sony Vaio laptop:
* 1.7 GHZ Quad Intel I7
* 4Gb RAM
* NVidia CUDA graphic
* Microsoft 7
Got this "high end" laptop so I would have no issues running Studio 14, but I still find that the program "lags" at times. I can understand that it might be a bit slower when working with AVCHD files, but lately it seems slow when working with older files (AVI, WMV, etc...).
Thought by going with the I 7 processor, I would have no issues, but frankly I'm not that impressed.
