Vegas Laptop

Been a long time since I was here, but thought I'd post some info on a new laptop I just got. It's a Gigabyte P34G, 14" AHVA screen (similar to IPS), Core i7 4700HQ quad, 8 threads 2.4 - 3.4Ghz, 8 GB Ram, 128mSSD, 1TB 5400rpm HDD Nvidia GTX760.
I'm pretty blown away with performance on this machine, I am coming from a 4 year old Vaio Core2Duo P8700, so a big change. Did a quick playback/render test against my desktop, an overclocked 4770K.

Re: Vegas Laptop

Sounds like a sweet set-up. I'm using an MSI.

GT60 0NC-004US

• Intel® Core™ i7-3610QM Processor
• Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64bit
• 15.6" Full HD Anti-reflective Display (16:9; 1920 x 1080)
• NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX670M discrete graphics (GDDR5 3GB VRAM)
• Accelerated performance with MSI TDE Technology
• Full-color programmable backlit keyboard by SteelSeries
• Killer Game Networking
• MSI Cooler Boost Technology
• Dynaudio Premium Sound Speakers with THX TruStudio PRO™
• 1.0TB (7200RPM; 500GB x 2 in RAID 0)
• 12GB DDR3 1600MHz system memory
• DVD Super Multi
• USB 3.0 for high speed data transfer
• HDMI 1.4 (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) output
• Built-in 720p HD webcam
• Gold flashed audio jack ports with amplifier
• 802.11 b/g/ n Wireless LAN with Bluetooth

Its a year old but I'm pretty impressed with running Vegas Pro 12 on it. I'm a recent convert from Adobe. I don't really edit a lot on the laptop but start all my media asset management with it and I will start a project and cut on it when I travel. I have done some rendering just to see how far I can push it and Vegas is surprising me. I always had a hard time with the UI in Vegas but I'm past it now and enjoying the power that's under the hood.

Re: Vegas Laptop


Be aware of using 5400 rpm harddrives with an i7 laptop. The HD isn't just keeeping up with the speed of the i7 processor. So it's kind of useless, at least when rendering video files. You better look for a 7200 rpm HD or, even better, a SSD.
