I'm in the market for a new mobile workstation, for Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop, C4D, Red Giant plug ins, and perhaps to start using Da Vinci in the future. I am also going to be working with RAW CDNG files, as well as ProRes 4444 soon, and I need something that can handle the workload. I travel a lot for work, it has to be a laptop. won't be used for anything but video/ photography work.

I've put together a machine on pcspecialist.com, so if anyone had any insights on things that it is lacking, or things that I don't actually need on there, I'd  love to hear them. I don't know loads about what's going on under the computer's hood. thanks in advance. Noel

You really should go to professional video editing builders that can fully understand your workflow and do a better job of helping you.  Get in touch with Eric at ADK or other knowledgeable people like Safe Harbor or Pudget Sound.

Just as an example I would not under any conditions have a hard disk drive in a new laptop.  You really need at least one much faster SSD than your configuration to handle that media.  Something like the Samsung 950 Pro or better yet (after the middle of this month) the new Samsung 960 Pro for your project files.

The idea with the hard drive was simply for storage  and archiving of things I'm not working on, but may still need to access. I was figuring an ssd for windows abs software, and then a larger ssd for video and project files. thanks for the link, though, I'll check those guys out

....question for Bill :  with the new Samsung 960 Pro coming out with its incredible speed and 1 or 2 TB capacities...have we reached the point where just EVERYTHING can be placed on a single drive for best performance ?

For Noel, this could mean a single 960 Pro for all files and another, separate drive(s). for backup,or, archive.

Well the first thing I do when I get my 960 Pro is to try that out.  I will have to do it on my desktop and I will attempt to slow it down to laptop type speeds
