I used my Acer ter-600 with P3-600, 256MB for video editing on the road for years so today's laptops are now much better. You'd be hard pressed to find something new that is less than old "Paint."
Today I'd love to have a dual core unit but within a month we'll see the dual core Turion so that may be da' bomb.
Going to buy a laptop for video editing. Would like for it to be durable, mid-sized, and have enough power/speed/memory to do video editing. Can you suggest one for around $800 to $1200 ? Doesn't matter which brand, however I would like one that is highly rated. Thank you!
