Video editing was very demanding and now with HD Video even more so. HOWEVER if this freeze is that long pause while it works on something, a faster machine will only reduce the wait time till the unfreeze and it continues.
If it's a lockup that points to other issues such as the need for canned air and heat sink compound replacement.
As to disk space that's usually cheap to fix.
-> Your die hard video editors are not on laptops or tablets. They do demo the work on such and your budding video worker may not have the resources for a workstation and get by with just a laptop.
Since tablets don't have the big storage space I can't see that as an option today. I do think I'd set up the holy trio of editing station, laptop and tablet which is along the top end of Mac Pro, MacBook Pro and iPad but that would bust the budget of the budding artist.
Look for a nice i5/i7 laptop with GPU with 1GB RAM and a nice 500 or greater GB HDD. Then for the tablet for the demos, the iPad if you are courting film execs or the Nexus 10 if the budget matters.
Hello, I am at my university studying animation and graphic design. I am looking into getting a computer that runs Adobe Suite, movie editing programs, music editing programs, animation programs, Tec really well and fast. However, I want it to be like a tablet where I can draw directly onto the screen.
I know that this expectation of a tablet or tablet pc with this ability is relatively new, so this is why it's so hard for me to choose.
Right now I am trying out the Surface Pro, but it seems to freeze a lot and the storage space is quite little and saddening. I think its too expensive for too little performance wise.
I wish to try two others before choosing my final. This is a big move that will start my graphic career, so I'm hoping for the best, but at a reasonable price
