Just a little background. I produce videos for a website on a regular basis in a professional role using Panasonic DVCproHD footage from P2 cards and the occasional 7D DSLR footage. I am also looking at adding a Panasonic AF101 in the next year which is AVCHD I believe. I have been using Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 (along with AE, SB etc) and we recently spec'd a very good PC with 24gb ram, i7 980X, 250GB SSD work drive, 2TB storage, 130Gb boot drive. Graphics card is a 2gb Nvidia Quadro 5000 which works with the mercury engine. It was a custom built machine and has never worked without numerous crashes since we got it. It has been back and forth with the supplier since new and the numerous crash issues have never been resolved. They were also never consistant so it was a battle. This would have been bad enough but we also commisioned a laptop at the same time for mobile editing which has had almost exactly the same issues which points to a vendor issue to me. Anyway, we want to get rid of these machines back to the supplier as unfit for use and are looking for new solutions. That may be another custom PC from another vendor, or it could be an Apple solution, I have no issues with either and I am not a PC or Mac fanboy, I just want a machine that will do what I need and without constant crashing or other issues. All the people I have asked so far for opinion have said, get a MAC, so what do you think? What kind of Spec should I look at? and any members who work with Pro video, what would you suggest? I am open to all help I can get and as I have said would like some ideas from fellow Video pros ideally, but open to all experiences and opinions. And would a 15-inch spec'd MBP be good enough for on the road production with premiere? Thanks in advance.
