    Default Laptop for AVCHD editing


    Iím looking for budget laptop for everyday use (internet browsing, Word, online TV). Also from time to time I need to edit AVCHD video file from my Sony TG3 camcorder.

    My understanding is that for efficient AVCHD video editing I would need Intel i3-i5 processor but they drive price higher than my budget of 700eur.

    Now trying to choose between
    a) TOSHIBA Satellite L500-1XD (Core i3 330M 2,13 GHz, 4096 DDR3 Mo, 320 Gb) for 545 eur
    b) Dell Studio 15 i5-520M (2.4GHz, 4 Threads, turbo Boost up to 2.93GHz, 3MB cache) 1GB ATI Mobility Radeonô HD5470 Graphics Card 4096MB 1333MHz Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM [2x2048] , HDD 500GB Ė slightly over budget at 759 eur

    Any advise or other ideas? Battery life is not important, HDD must be at least 300G, RAM at least 3G, Windows 7.

    What websites would you recommend? Iíve tried pixmania, amazon, ebuyer, komplett, dell,

    i use a compaq presario cq60 budget laptop and it edits avchd no worries. google the spec of mine and you can compare. i listened to all the horror stories about what spec you need too in reality it might not be lightening quick but the result is ok..
