Considering that AVCHD is the most highly compact (requiring little storage capacity) High Definition video format, then high-speed disk access probably won’tbe one of your biggest concerns.Fast RAM access, processor speed, and GPU processing (if you’re not using Sony Vegas) are probably three of your greatest needs. But if it’s really not too much of a hassle, I’d find a compatible 7200 rpm drive for your system. I edit from my 1 TB 7200 rpmhardriveconnected via Firewire, and the editing seems to go a bit faster than editing directly from my 5200 rpm internal drive.
