faster is always better, but its hard to give min specs. id go for at least a dual core processor, tho quad core will be much better. how bout you post what comp ur looking at?
Just purchased a Canon HF20 camcorder and am in the market to upgrade my desktop. Would love to hear recommendations on what I should look for in my next PC. I am considering buying a desktop with built-in Blu-ray burner, downloading the AVCHD files to my new computer, editing them, and then burning to the Blu-ray burner for archiving and viewing purposes. One guy told me the Blu-ray burners in, say, the HP's are not a good way to go. Canon sells a DVD burner, but I would assume it will not be the HD quality video my camcorder is capable of. Thank you in advance for your input.
