I agree with Julie. These do seem a little pricey.

It's probably a case of me wanting my cake and wanting to eat it. Cause, you see I don't actually NEED a laptop editor. My Macs are doing a grand job with all that.

I'm getting a PC laptop for other reasons and thought it would be mighty handy to get one that could run edit/media software well. Thing is I can't really justify spending mega bucks on a full-on stand alone dedicated laptop edit suite. But the possibility of having a mobile editor is to tempting not to take a look at.

Soooo, in a nut-shell - I was hoping to buy something pretty much off the shelf, with a decent processor, enough RAM etc (17Inch screen maybe). But I was also hoping it would not have to be so high-end/speced-up that it cost mega bucks.

It just needs to do an adequade job of running, say...premier or avid express or whatever PC edit software I end up with. Like I say I want my cake and...

Anyway are my expectations realistic?

Someone else recommended I get a Powerbook with virtual PC, running XP pro. Hmmm, the plot thickens.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers
Steve
