Clevo x7200 Sager NP7280

Hi,

I have read much on the Clevo/Sager notebook being recommended for video editing (eg Premier Pro CS5 etc) - anyone able to document their experiences esp. notebook performance during workflow?

What would be recommended hard disk set-up ie Boot/HD1/HD2 (ssd-hybrid-7200).

Currently working with Adobe CS3 but hoping to upgrade to Adobe CS5.

Not sure of 460M or 470M as video card.

Any experiences with the notebook would be great.

Cheers

do you need a laptop?
thats the biggest question.
performance is still better on a desktop than the Clevo laptop.
howwever as far as laptops go its by far the best.

you only want the 460 video card with MPE enabled, anything higher over heats and you have to turn off MPE making to higher end video card pointless anyway.

benchmarks with CS5 5.0 (have not updated it with 5.03 and the newer vid cards)
Video material - AVCHD 1080P 24 Frame Each Cut to 30 minutes of material
Export Codec - H264 HDTV 1080P 24 Preset Default
4 Effects per Layer - Fast Color Corrector, Brightness & Contrast, Video Limiter, Sharpen
Each Layer Scaled to 50% for 4 frame PinP view.

ADK 9000 Laptop (clevo)

285M GTX 1GB video card

Scott,

Thanks for the info, I can definetaly see the performance difference.

I do need a laptop - I will be relocating to a place with solar power only - with occasional generator power.

A 600W desktop (an older xw8200 which I have now) will be a no go with all the other devices used.

Also, a transportable computer in a high-risk bushfire area a must.

i dont know if the X7200 will happen on solar. it takes a 300W power supply the ext PS is a huge brick.
maybe something a little less robust...

and 300w of solar panel are barely transportable, so in my opinion there is no real solution to that problem.
your laptop will run 1 hour on battery then you will need to charge anyway.
using battery car adapter can be dangerous, you could drain the battery car very fast.

I have checked the power will support the laptop. Problems occur in Winter with low sunlight - generators may need to be used.
