    Exclamation Laptop versus desktop for HD video editing & Photoshop use?....

    Hi, I hope this is the right forum for my post...if not, my apologies.

    Basically, I am wanting to upgrade from my Dell Inspirion laptop to a more high-powered laptop or Desktop to run Sony Vegas Pro 9.0 and Photoshop. I have a budget of 1,500, and I will be editing HD vids and also working with effects, and although this is a hobby I'm finding it to be more time consuming than it needs to be because my machine can't keep up with the rendering etc. (have an enternal 1TB too) I want the replacement model to go beyond the minimum system requirements for Sony Vegas and Photoshop, as much as possible within my budget. Am I better off going with a desktop? If so, any recommendations? I would love to have it custom built, but I don't know of any reputable sites or local retailers and then I'm concerned about the after sales support with a custom-build.

    From the forums I have already visited I've noted that HP, Dell and Sony are the more highly recommended brands but I'm not keen on Dell. So, I have looked at Sony Vaio F series, (is this going to be suitable?) The Sony site has a minimum price and then it lets you configure to your spec...any suggestions on how I should configure please?

    You will get better results editing on a PC rather than a lap top. I went to pc specialists, Get something from this range. Go for a solid state drive for your OS.
