I'm looking at getting a new notebook pc and am hoping to spec it well enough to be able to do some HD video editing. Mostly just simple home movies, nothing professional. My old computer cannot even play HD video smoothly so its time for an upgrade.
I'm looking at a couple different systems. I'm curious if anyone knows if the new Intel i7-720qm quad core processor will be capable of HD video editing. I'm curious because it is only a 1.6GHz processor (up to 2.8GHz with turbo boost). However, due to the fact that it is a true quad core, will it have enough power to play and edit HD smoothly. The system will also have 4Gb or RAM and a 1GB graphics card.
Thanks for the help.
