I want to buy a relatively inexpensive notebook or laptop ($300-$400) and use it exclusively for digital pictures, video and to transfer analog video to digital. I already have Pinacle Dazzle DVD reorder for the transfering process. I would like to do some simple video editing as well and burn to DVD. My current computer will not play .VOB file which the format my Dazzle converter uses. What are some specifications to look for in a computer for these purposes. I also have a 500Gb EH for it as well.
