Looking for laptop recommendations that can run CC incredibly well - further details in the post.

I have started a new role as a design team manager, and the team are on Dell Latitudes 5430 laptops. 16GB Ram, Intel Iris internal graphics etc. 

 

The laptops get daily BSODs, cannot preview AE at more than 1/8 and each machine has consistent crashes daily. Really not built for intensive design work.

 

I've been tasked with looking into the perfect machine that can handle our workload to replace them.

 

// Workload Breakdown //

- Heavy use of Ilustrator

- AE open and animating the Ilustrator file GFX

- Pulling comps into Premiere Pro for editing

- Audition open and linked to Premiere Pro for VO and audio tweaks

- AME for all exports

 

Basically: I need a machine that can have illustrator, after effects, premiere pro and audition open at the same time without blowing up. At the moment we have to have one program open at a time and we still get crashes due to Bib errors, freezing, BSODs etc.

 

In the past I have used a top of the line MacBook Pro (2019 onwards M1 sillicone) that has worked wonders, super optimised and just...works.

 

Unfortunately  - and here's the annoying part - the IT dept who run our stuff seem to think our current laptops are fine and "Disney made Avatar 2 on these exact laptops".

 

Crazy I know. But they are not taking my word and experience in past agencys whatsoever so I need to prove to them we need the change to something better.

 

Any help would be fantastic.

Oh that's a very dumb move from me, putting a laptop chat in the desktop section. Is there a way I can change the topic?

Do you have to use laptops?

Can you use desktops?

Upgrading to laptops with 32Gb or even 64Gb of RAM would make a huge difference.

I second Warren's suggestion. Your organization's Latitude laptops have too little installed RAM for a system that does not have a discrete GPU at all. And the Intel Iris Xe integrated graphics steals far too much system RAM for itself when rendering, resulting in your RAM becoming depleted in the middle of a video processing job. Hence the constant crashes.
