I am bouncing back and fourth between a few options right now. I figured I would start a thread dedicated to one topic rather then several like my other. I am a senior in HS and will be moving to NYC in June and want portability. I work primarily in FCP Studio, CS2, After Effects and would like someone who has had experience with this computer to give me a thumbs up or down. If I have 2 GB RAM a 5400 RPM 120 GB hard-drive will I get good performance out of a 1 Ghz 17" PowerBook? My dad had this model at his old work in San Francisco and I used it with 512 MB RAM and liked it. I didn't edit on it or anything, but liked the screen real-estate and thought it was a quality product. Rendering will be a pain, but thats bearable. I can use a friends G5 to render anything too big. Suggestions?
