    Mine is a 2.4GHz and it handles 1080P at full-screen, full frame rate.

    Hi David,
    Your correct, (I checked) 10/100 .
    I have installed a 200Gig HDD in the little Thinkpad, maxed out the Ram to 2gig , loaded Premier 3.1. (for News Compile edits back to P2 cards) OS is XP Pro , and at this stage it does me for in field work. With My 4 8gig and 2 x 32 gig P2 cards, combined with the laptops HDD space, I have sufficient at this point to save most jobs that come my way. ( all up cost $400 approx)
    Also have a couple of USB 750gig externals on standy. these are very handy as back ups.
    Cheers

    Thank you for this post Barry. I'm trying to set up my workflow right now and was looking for a PC laptop to Mac desktop option-I think this might be it for me.

    Would this workflow allow one to bypass FAT32 files? My original plan was to transfer the footage via a portable external harddrive. But I've read that the files can only be 4 gbs and I have 2 8gb cards-I've read somewhere the the footage will be split into 2 files, not sure if this is the case or not. I've also read that you can only have 15 partitions.

    If I don't have to worry about FAT32 then this means I can use any card size right?

    Anyways, great post!

    The P2 cards themselves are FAT32, so the file sizes on the cards will be limited accordingly, regardless of the size of the card.

    Hi Barry,
    Great article. I am on the hunt for a good solution to this workflow problem. Just finished a two camera shoot and we most certainly had issues with the P2 ingesting workflow.

    I am curious why there are no third party hardware solutions on the market at this point? P2 is very popular and has a good market penetration. Unless Panasonic is charging ridiculous licensing fees, or is blocking third-party hardware manufacturers from accessing the firmware of the cards, I am surprised there are not more P2 card reader options out there.

    Your thoughts?
    Thanks again for the interesting perspective in your article.
    Matt

    My apologies for asking but i am a noob and just wanted to clarify;

    Shoot your footage until one P2 is full
    Pop the P2 card into the windows laptop (in the filed) offload, use P2 card again.
    Get back to your Mac, connect Windows to Mac (Mac Pro in my case) via giga-ethernet.
    Ingest if needed to the Mac or edit from the laptop (acting like an external hard drive/footage hub)

    Id this right?

    Thanks
