    over and above any 'Vista' type questions....

    That's not a very big or fast hard drive. I know Premiere is much happier with 2xharddrive. one for the OS and a sepearet one for video projects and assets. But it's a laptop right. If you can get bigger than 120Gb then that would be better.

    Also, I didn't notice (unless I missed it) the word firewire in that spec. A firewire port is generally considered a prerequisite for video capture and editting. Or at least it is if you shoot with a miniDV camcorder.

    Alan is right. First thing after you buy this laptop should be attaching an external, dedicated hard drive. And forget about antibacterial keyboard and look for a firewire port.
