Just got an HD camcorder and GoPro and started editing some of the first footage we got this last weekend. My computer is old and isn't doing too well. I've been looking at getting a new laptop anyway so was just curious what system requirements I should be paying attention to to make sure it'll do the job.
It doesn't need to be blazing fast, just need to be able to view and edit the clips. I'm assuming most of this has to do with RAM and processing speed? I will be buying a PC so no Apple recommendations please. I know they are awesome for editing, but at the end of the day this computer will be used for work mostly. I'm just looking for the bare minimum so I can put together some really basic edits. Thanks in advance!
