Hi first off I am new here and to editing kind of.... (so be gentle)
I need to get a laptop to use for work and capable of doing my editing ... I have a limited budget of £600 max , 710 Euro or $910
I guess I am looking for i7 processor? HDMI output, DVD re writer (some sort of graphics card?)
I do not want a Sony or Acer, I would have another Toshobia... Any help Sugestions?
Please give links to models / available in the UK if possible
I am not that great with all those numbers and spec (I am not a i.t. wizz kid)....
I start looking and it gets too much after looking at a few models. I go to the shop (PC World) and I get the impression all they do is read the spec sheet back to me.
+To be honest Editing is a necessity not a hobby. I can not afford to pay a pro to edit, and in fact the footage I produce is not really worth the cost in my opinion...
I would love nothing more than to get to a crew of people with the latest kit to do the filming for me but it's just not viable, my interests
(the content - extreme type sports) are so expensive... this is just to document.
My requirement, I now use a go pro black edition which is running at 1080p but offers 1440p and is crisp which I think is due to frame rate maybe?...
is definitely giving this budget current laptop a hard time compared to my HD hand held camera which is very clear too...(I am using Cyber Link Editor)
here's an example (don't laugh)
