Re: laptop for avchd

If you plan on keeping your laptop for any length of time ( say more than 18 months ), I would try and buy an i7 model because of the time you will save from faster edits and shorter rendering time.

Re: laptop for avchd

You might want to consider that there's support for Nvidia CUDA video chips in some of the software like Premier Pro CS5.

It doesn't look like Edius has that support, but it wouldn't hurt to have an Nvidia chip in the laptop.
