HDR-HC3, gs400

I am sorry these are basicly just faq's

Hi, I am on the verge of buying a camera but I am not quite sure what to buy. Now am trying to choose between HDR-HC3 and gs400 (I am aware that gs400 has better manual controls) but what I cant find out which camera has better footage quality regarding colors; the gs400 has 3 ccd's but HDR-HC3 uses csmos sensor, does he have three csmos (one for each color?)?

Also how hard will it be to edit htv footage on a 2,41 Ghz 480 mbRAM PC?

I do not have a HDTV but will I be able to see my hd footage in full quality on my computer flatscreen?

You will see the full spatial detail on the computer screen, but because it is progressive you won't see the full temporal effect of your interlaced footage.

A 2.4GHz is probably not workable for HDV. Rule of thumb is a 2.8-3.0 or better, and dual-core if possible. (Which is actually not too horribly expensive if you can simply upgrade your CPU... but that depends on your current motherboard etc of course).
