Looking for a new notebook to do HD video editing on at an amateur/beginner pro level with projects ranging from 5min to 1hr/1hr 30min with effects and transitions built in. my reason for a notebook is I will be doing some long travelling in the new year and will be filming my time and making something of it.
I will be using an external harddrive to store my projects on so the notebook stays at its peak but one notebook I can get a expresscard/34 port to put in adaptors. Im not worried about card readers as I have an usb one the main reason I was looking was the eSATA II 300 ExpressCard Adapter I could get for it, as it looks to be able to run an external harddrive and run/store my projects faster and leaving my notebook to stay at a peak performance.
My main two questions are
1:would this laptop be up for the job with the spec below.
Intel core due 3.06ghz
4gb ram (2x 2gb)
2:Would the Express card be worth it for the harddrive?
