So I have to get a new laptop since my desktop setup is getting quite old and I have to be more mobile. I was thinking of purchasing a 13", 14" or 15" Ultrabook.
Now there are some lightweight powerhouses out there, for example the Asus u500vz or the Gigabyte U2442F. Which are two of the most performance delivering ultrabooks at the time.
But my question is will it be enough? Does After Effects CS5 rely more on GPU power or is it a combination of SSD, CPU, GPU and RAM?
I'm mostly doing Motion Graphics in Adobe After Effects on FULL HD(1920x1080) resolution. When I set the quality on 'Half' or 'Quarter', real time editing/rendering is possible on my current desktop setup most of the time.
Will I be able to edit in real-time HD(with settings on half or quarter quality) with an Ultrabook like mentioned above?
Thanks in advance,
