Which video editing software please?

I was using Cyberlink Power Director 13 on my PC, but its so power hungry it's unbealivable. It has more crashes then a deranged car, and freezes more times then the North Pole, even Polar bears and Penguins would be shocked.

I have my eyes on Sony Movie Studio 13 Suite or, Corel VideoStudio Pro X7. I would like to put it on my i5 laptop which runs windows 10 and has 8gb and 64 bit processor.

Which is the better one to go for?

I'm not really looking for all the bells and whistle's (although it would be nice) stabalisation is a must, and a story board where you drag and drop.

Sony is usually pretty good.

But a lot of the crashes I find are either odd encoding choices or a machine issue.

ALL video editing is power hungry. Only the new folk think it shouldn't be.
