I'm thinking of using a Dell Mini 9 for blogging on an extended (1 year) bicycle trip.
I'm thinking of upgrading the solid state drive from 16GB to 64GB.The idea is to use a couple of ruggedized external USB hard drives (250 or 320GB) to store video and photos on the go.
I'm keen on these mini PCs with solid state hard drives as it appears they're more able to survive a few knocks.
The Dell mini 9 would be used to tag/label photos, reduce their size for upload to Flickr and the originals would be then stored on the external hard drive.
Likewise I'd like to be able to edit short videos for uploading to YouTube. This would primarily involve cutting and pasting together clips and rendering in a format suitable for upload.
My questions are:
- what lightweight (non bloat ware) video editing software might be suitable for this
- (I know most people would think this is crazy) but would an Atom CPU based netbook be capable of doing simple video editing tasks
Thanks for your advice!
