I agree with maniac. Although you could edit video on a less powerful laptop, I think you would find it to be much more or a frustrating experience than an enjoyable one. I have a cheaper celeron laptop around $800 that is great for day to day work, but for editing, I leave that to my AMD dual core desktop machine. If you definately want to go with a laptop, get the best processor possible for the money. A bunch of RAM would be great too, but that is upgradable. You will want firewire ports built in for external hard drives for video storage, and for capturing. My advise, save up and get a $2000+ laptop for editing, or get a desktop to start with now for the $1200 you are willing to spend.
