Yes, this is another laptop recommendation thread.
I'm looking for a laptop for every day use, and also CS6 and AE. Any laptop that will play the clips smoothly while working with them during editing is all I'm looking for, rendering doesn't have to be blisteringly quick, but it would be a bonus. I'm on a tight budget, sub $700, but the cheaper the better. Also I'm planning to get a refurbished model to get more performance formy money. Does anyone have any advice? Would a speedy dual i5 or i7 suffice, or are the demands of CS6 such that it needs a quad core?
