Even though I switched my project to a laptop with 8meg of RAM on a 64 bit i7 computer, I still get lots of freezing. The good news is that when I saved (exported)  the project, there WAS no freezing. I know I could get the extra drive, as someone suggested, inside my computer, but if I were to buy another computer, what specs would you suggest on a Windows computer?

Thanks.

I always use this chart as a rule of thumb. For editing high-def video, look for a processor that rates a 7000 or better. For editing 4K, look for a processor rating at least at 10,000.

PassMark Intel vs AMD CPU Benchmarks - High End

Make sure your hard drive has lots of space. 1 TB is pretty standard now.

Remember that desktops are built for power and laptops are built for portability, so you always get better performance from a desktop. But if your processor is fast enough, you've got a good RAM load (12-16 gig is a good level) and you've got lots of free space on your hard drive, you should be fine with either.

But also remember that a lot also depends on the format and codec of video you're editing how editable it is. I'm concerned that you're getting freezing with an i7. I don't know where your video is coming from or what format it is, but if it's giving an i7 problems, you may find instability issues even with a faster machine.

Larry,

There is a class of computers for people who are devoted to video games.  I've never played a video game but bought a "gaming" laptop made by ASUS several years ago.  It has worked well for video editing, including 4K.
