will my setup work with vegas pro 13

I am considering buying a Canon G20 and Vegas Pro 13 I'm not sure if my laptop will work though. It meets all requires but it does not have a firewire port, can I just use the usb to import video into vegas pro or no? My video card is a Nvidia GTX 780M I believe that will be fine for vegas pro?

Sorry for the beginner question but any assistance would be appreciated

You dont need firewire ports for that camcorder, you simply connect
it to your computer and drag your videos from it to your laptop or
you use memory cards and acquire the content from those. Then you start
editing with vegas after they are transferred to your laptop.
You will be quite ok!

the CPU is the most relevant information on render times and previewing the video in editing

i have a i7-4702HQ in my notebook and i had a 3770k in my desktop and both run normal 1080p 60fps content fine. they both struggle when adding a lot of effects or keyframing, slow motion stuff...

you wont have any problems doing 99% of editing and depending on what you use for titling and such it might make use of your GPU

[Steve Rhoden] "you simply connect it to your computer and drag your videos from it to your laptop or you use memory cards and acquire the content from those."
Actually, you should use the Device Explorer to transfer files so that any video that is split across files due to the FAT32 file limitations of memory cards can be stitched back together correctly.

I would also recommend backing up the entire card structure and not just the video files. This will ensure that you don't loose any metadata needed to stitch files back together in the future.
