Hi Rahul,


I use Asus GL753V


I7 7700 +  Nvidia 1050ti + M.2 500Gb
The reason to have a powerful computer is:
If you need to convert a lot of video ( in HAP or other format ) you spend less time to convert

The hardware choice for production computer is based on your specific needs. If you only plan to use it for WATCHOUT Production AND you are willing to accept thumbnail placeholders for video in the stage preview, then a low power cpu will not be an issue. Same for spinning discs instead of SSD.

I know of one user who uses a USD $600 i5 / spinning disc laptop with great success. BUT he is an old multi-image guy and he only programs stills and watchout tweens - no video playback needs. i.e. ymmv

If on the other hand, you want to see video playback in the stage preview, then cpu processing power and disc speed (aka SSD) becomes more important. Also depends on the number of outputs and output resolution. Codec choices also come into play when determining what is enough to get the job done. At some point, with numerous outputs and/or very high resolutons, no amount of hardware will be able to keep up on video playback. (While stills are pre-processed and the stage can work with lower resolution images, video is always decoded for play back in its original form.)
