You’re computer is fine for AVCHD. It’s highly compressed video, so you’re not working with gicantic files.
The only thing I suggest is buying an external hard drive.Ideally you do not want anything loaded to your laptops internal hard drive other than software. If you fill it up too much it will lag and possibly crash. If the drive crashes with all your project files and source media on there, you’re screwed. So do yourself a favor a get an external drive…prefereable one that spins at 7200RPM and use the firewire800 connection. Firewire400 at minimum, do not use USB.
