    I'm being seduced by the 5D m2, and my credit card is crying out to buy one...thing is, i do all my processing on a laptop, and i'm not sure if it could handle the massive 21 mp files from the new 5D..

    I'd be grateful for any advice, as i dont want to have to buy a new PC as well..

    my laptop processer is an Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU
    P7350 @ 2.00 GHz, with 4gb of RAM

    I run Lightroom 2 and Photoshop CS3 at the moment on it with no problems, and currently have a Canon 40D.

    thanks a lot

    Phil

    That will do the job.

    In fact something with half thet spec would do the job, Its just a question of how long it will take software to perform a particular task, The faster machine, The quicker data is processed.

    The size of the sensor makes no difference, Other than the size of the file....!!!

    Just make sure you have backup drives that are large enough
