Alright, try to explain us movie makers: does it mean that it will not be working from a tablet PC at all? Or not to accelerate just means will be slow and not necessarily that will not be working?

Or is there any other solution?

I need a laptop for online editing & color correcting too (fast or not, RT of course) and maybe for your camera too. It should be an interesting commitment. Help me to find a way for to play with your toy, will you?

Hi Mathieu,

Purchase a Dell M1710 laptop. That's what I would suggest for a do-it-all portable machine.

Put in two channels of memory. Get the fastest processor you can. The installed Geforce GPU will be fine for anything you can throw at it.

I really don't think there's really anything more to say about this topic on what will and won't work.

Thanks :)

The only problem with the Dell M1710 as an editing machine is that it doesn't have a RAID 0 array. Doing multiple stream editing on a single drive will not deliver the proper RT multi-stream performance. At 5400 rpm you can get a 160GB drive, but that's definitely only one stream. At 7200 rpm I think it's only about 100GB today, and also doesn't reliably support multiple streams.

I've tested the Vaio AR190 as an editing machine, and because of its RAID 0 configuration it can easily keep up with multiple 1080 streams in real time with color corrections applied on each clip plus a transition. It ships with two 100GB drives. They're each 5400 rpm, but because of the RAID 0 configuration they easily provide multiple-stream RT performance. I'm not sure if you can specify bigger drives in it or not - hopefully so.

So while the AR190 is good as an editing machine, how about for RT capture with the SILICON? It doesn't have GigE in its internal NIC, but it has an Express Card slot that should support GigE in the proper configuration for the SILICON. We also tested the dock unit today for the AR190 and it definitely has the proper GigE connection for SILICON.

The Dell will be great for CineForm RAW acquisition but only okay as an editing machine. For those who prefer a machine that does a good job at both I think the Vaio might be one step better.

Hi David,

Thanks for the update!

Looks like a very nice laptop, and the Expresscard NIC's are typically pretty good (they're using modern chipsets for aquisition which work well).

Thanks,

Jason
