Hi, I'm hoping someone can provide me with some guidance. I have previously used a desktop for video editing, however now wish to have the convenience of using a laptop to edit home videos. My desktop has been a dell, using Pinnacle Studio version 11. As I have not had any major issues with the desktop I have been leaning towards a dell laptop.
I notice PC World have a couple of dell laptops in the sale:
Processor Type Intel Core 2 Duo T5750
Processor speed 2000
Memory Size 4 GB MB
Hard Drive Capacity 320 GB (5400)
Optical Drives BLU RAY DISC COMBO DRIVE
Screen Size/Type 15.4" TrueLife Widescreen
Graphics Card Type ATI Radeon 3450
Graphics Memory 256 MB
Inspiron 1545 £399.
Intel Core 2 Duo T5800
Processor speed 2GHz, 800MHz FSB, 2MB Cache
Memory Size 3 GB MB
Memory Type DDR 2
Hard Drive Capacity 250 GB (5400)
Optical Drives DVD/RW
Screen Size/Type 15.6" Widescreen
Graphics Card Type Integrated
Is the studio worth the extra money? (I'm editing standard dv) or would the 1545 be OK? Is it a good choice, or should I should I be looking at a different laptop (e.g. customised direct with Dell)?
I appreciate your guidance.
