About to use after effects with HD videos, which to use (details inside)

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm about to start some big after effects editing, i dont know which to use between my weak desktop and weak laptop can anyone help?

Desktop: Sig Rig
Laptop has: Intel i5 450M, 4gb Ram, Integrated VGA.

So my predicament is choosing between a q6600 with 2 gb of 5 years old RAM, and a i5 450M with 4gb of Ram (also i read that it has hyperthreading)

Help?

Multiple cores and more RAM really helps while using After Effects. I'm pretty sure that After Effect CS5 has support for virtual cores as well.

Laptop, 2gb of ram would be horrible for encoding/rendering.

AE would barely use the q6600 due to ram starvation. It requires a minimum of 2gb per core for decent performance.
In your case the memory capacity is going to be the bottleneck.

so since my laptop has 4gb of RAM and an i5 450M, i should use it instead of the desktop because it has a puny 2gb of Ram?

Yes!
With my quad core + 4gb setup, I can only achieve around 40% cpu usage in AE doing some heavy rendering with lots of glow and blurring. I need more ram!!!
