Hi all Hoping I can get some general - and specific advice please if poss! Currently, at the moment I have a Toshiba Satellite 15.4" L300D laptop. It's now about 4 years old. It's always worked perfectly, never any trouble. Thing is, the limited 150GB HDD is filling up - plus the fact I want to start getting into a little video editing. I say "a little" because it won't be something I'll be doing every week or anything - just now and again - but obviously need to take this into account when thinking of it's replacement. I am quite confused by what is "out there" now. I understand that I7 processor is the way to go (with HD editing) but would I get away with an I5? Anyhow, I suppose, realistically, my budget could be anywhere up to £1000. I'd rather not spend that much if poss, but if needs be, I could go up to this level. I've seen this in PC World and wondered firstly, what you guy's think of it: SONY VAIO SVE1711X1EB 17.3" Laptop at cheap prices | Pcworld I've got some general questions here so if anyone could also help me out, I'd be grateful. Firstly, in the world of laptops now, which are considered "decent" makes? I quite like my Toshiba (based on 4 years worth of flawless performance) so wouldn't mind sticking with Toshiba, but the Sony I've linked to above looks ok. Is Sony considered "ok" for laptops? I would, of course, consider other "makes" but Sony and Toshiba seem to be where I am swaying at the moment...... Other than the odd bit of HD video editing, my usage would simply be Microsoft Office applications, bit of photo editing and Internet usage - particularly interested in things like You Tube HD clips - which my current machine struggles to play sometimes! So, based on the above, can I ask: Is the Sony I've linked to above overkill for my usage - or - if you can afford it - is it a good way to go? What's a decent similar spec (or best spec for my use) within the Toshiba world now? Ideally I wanted a 17.3 screen, but it doesn't have to be - nor do I have to buy from PC World - it's just that I went in there the other day and spotted the Sony...... Thank you ever so in advance for any help - really, really appreciated!
