AVCHD burn to DVD

I've been told (by my Sony SR-11 manual) that I can save AVCHD to ordinary DVD discs but can only play such discs on Blue Ray players. Playing on ordinary DVD players will cause unpleasant results including the disc locking up in the player or other damage to the player. I have saved some holiday AVCHD mts files on a DVD disc but sit in fear of actually using the discs either in a DVD Player or back on my computer's DVD drive.. Will they play on a computer DVD disc drive OK or harm the computer as well? Also I am getting a Dell XPS Studio 16 laptop soon with Blue Ray reader included (but no Blue Ray burner). I presume these AVCHD DVD discs will play OK on that machine?? Correct?? Also I was disappointed to read that Laptops are inherently slower/less efficient, by a factor of 6 or more, than desktops in editing/ rendering AVCHD irrespective of the components installed. Mine will have an i7 CPU, 6 gigs of RAM, 1 gig of video RAM and 500 GB 7200RPM SATA HD. Is that machine also doomed to be a poor performer in editing AVCHD? Drat!! What a difficult system AVCHD is proving to be??!!

Sorry nobody has replied to my post of the same title. I guess it was too basic to interest anybody here.
