I'm looking for a laptop $900 or under for video editing purposes, with Windows 7, of course.
I am currently eyeing a Dell Inspiron 15R Special Edition with the following specs:

I have been using Sony Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 8.0 on my computer Dell Inspiron laptop and editing Sony camcorder clips with pretty good results. Things have changed. We recently purchased a Nikon D7000 and I'm finding the clips to be 'jumpy' when in the editing software. I set the camera at 720 HD 30 frames. My laptop is running XP Version 2002. Processor 1.70GHz; 1.23 GB RAM. I realize the company should upgrade the laptop. What I'm trying to is find either a reasonably priced laptop (PC because all our software is PC) or better handle the MOV files.
About a year ago I got my first editing software, Pinnacle Studio Ultimate V.12. Now I was coming from movie maker so I didn.t care when it said magic bullet looks couldn't work on my computter. Now i'm on v.14 and it still has magic bullet. Once againit shows an error. After talking to some VFX people I know I decidedI need to use this software.
So what type of graphics card do I need. I use a dell computter.

Yesterday I went to use my laptop hard for about an hour, and the thing got so hot it started to stutter, and miss keystroke commands. I checked the fans with the diagnostics, and everything seems fine. I keep the thing on a laptop pad (always on), but the thing just gets hot.
I would like to do some video editing on the laptop as well as the desktop (for when I travel), but if it gets so hot, I do not think I will be able to do so. Is it possible to ventilate a Dell Inspiron E1720 case so I do not burn up the hardware?
I just ordered my computer to start editing video, do you think this will be satisfactory toedit SD and HD videowith Sony Vegas 8?
