Hi guys,

I’m looking into buying a new laptop – HP Envy 15. So I was wondering if any of you can pitch in and give me some advice.

Basically, I’d love to hear from anyone who is using this laptop how they feel about it. I know it has a price point near MacBooks but Mac is not for me atleast for now.

Also, I’d like to know if any of you have experience of running Adobe products on 64 bit computers and if they run well without any issues. My major work is with Flash, PHP and MySQL but I want to start learning other stuff like video editing, 3D modeling, animation, etc and so I need a really good computer.

I can buy a desktop instead of laptop, but I move frequently and so a laptop will be a better option for me.

Any input is really appreciated. Thanks.

Only windows xp for 64 bits has some issues with some software. Like Quick time or Canon’s Eos utility. Except those I didn’t had any problems. no i’m using windows 7 and works better than anything in the whole wide world :D

I am using windows vista 64bit and all the products on the adobe pack seem to work just fine, exept for Flash CS4 .

When I create a textfield, Flash doesn’t give me the properties pannel on that textfield, and then it crashes.

I’m not sure that this is a Flash issue, but it happens very often.

Thanks for the replies guys. So as I understand it, adobe products do work with 64 bit operating systems well. I’m actually new to 64 bit systems. So is there anything that I need to consider before I go ahead and purchase it? Do all 32 bit softwares work on 64 bit pc’s? I did read on the internet that there can be some issues, but I’d like to know anything really specific as a we designer/developer that I need to look out for in terms of softwares I can use and cannot use.

I’ve been using Vista 64-Bit and 7-64 Bit both ultimate. had CS3 and CS4 run both on 64 Bit and as far as I know only PS is 64 Bit. the rest will be installed in the Program files (x86) folder.

And yes they both worked fine no problems at all
