Vegas Pro 8 and Vaio JS

Hey all,

Okay, so looking at the Vaio JS290 (E7400) versus the no-longer-in-production JS190 (E8400), it looks as though the 190 was more powerful...not sure why they scrapped it (though I read somewhere that the E7400 overclocks nicely, at least up to 3 Ghz). In any case, since I'm left with the 290, I have Vegas Pro 8 and am wondering if that's a good combo to have for computer and sofware. I own a JVC GY-HD110U (720p) so that's where the video will come from. I chose Sony's Vaio simply because of Sony Vegas Pro and a good review from cnet on the 190 (meaning I'm not locked into Sony, it's merely a slightly educated first choice). So, will the Vaio JS290 with its 2.8 Ghz (E7400) Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB RAM be enough? I'm intrigued by these all-in-one computers that nix the hulking tower and keep most of the power, giving you some serious portability without taking the laptop route and paying more.

Thanks in advance.

Tyler

To simplify...

Sony's Vaio JS290 desktop PC (2.8 Ghz processor, Core 2 Duo, 4 GB RAM) and HDV camcorder...acceptable editing combination?

Mind you, I'm working with a Pentium 4 1.60 Ghz and 2 GB RAM currently. If the Vaio can comfortably handle HD editing, I don't need a speed-demon PC; but my biggest concern is that when I preview my work while editing, the audio video doesn't blip due to an inadequate processor (i.e. I can view my work without any inconsistencies in picture or sound).

Thanks,

Tyler

For HDV editing specs look OK, AVCHD is different story, quad q95 not plaing smooth even on auto preview
