Video Capture/Editing Laptop On A Budget
Alright, I'm currently using a two year old Gateway laptop for all my video capturing and editing needs. It does a very basic job of it and I know I need to upgrade as soon as possible.
I have a very small budget, preferably under $1000.
I need something reliable, a decent sized hard drive (something 200gb+ would be best), 3gb+ of ram (4gb preferred), and a screen size of 15.4" (could go bigger, but no smaller).
I'd like to hear what everyone's opinions on this are, as I want to make good use of the sales going on right now. Also, if there are any 0% Financing/No Interest for 12-18 Months deals going on, I'd really like to take advantage of those (if you know any, please tell me).
Also, I was thinking of purchasing a desktop tower to go along with the laptop a little while down the road to make use of a higher end video capture card. If anyone has any advice on this as well, I'd love to hear it.
