WHICH LAPTOP FOR FILM EDITING AND GENERAL USE?
I would really appreciate advice for buying a new laptop. I am a total amateur film-maker (only got a very basic tin-can camcorder at present) and have made a couple of simple, low quality short films using my (now stolen) MacBook Pro with iMovie.
I don't want to jump on the Apple bandwagon unless it's advised. I feel they are overpriced and I didn't really enjoy using my mac previously (I found it kept freezing and jolted the videos, perhaps this was because I was using iMovie?!.. And it was 5 years old..?).
Any advice on which laptop to go for would be great - bearing in mind I am doing this for fun, and need to use it for life too... But then I am likely to become more geeky about film editing down the line! I have read a previous thread on the topic but I don't understand half of the jargon used!
On a basic level I understood that *intel core i7* and an *8-bit screen* are a must. But brands/models wise I am still stuck... My budget could stretch to the £1000 mark but I don't want to spend it just because I can.
