Yeah, seems fine for mini DV. But you might have some space problem if you shoot and upload a lot on your computer. Digital video with native coding takes A LOT of space. Get an external harddrive cause for example it’s safer to save a copy of everything you edit (one on your laptop harddrive and one on an external harddrive, in case your computer fails during the editing).
yeah thats right. i have a canon hv30 hi-def camera and under an hour of footage took up around 7gb…if you’re looking to buy a laptop that’s not custom made i’d recommend the Dell XPS M1730…its what i use…its around top of the line so it was costly but it does the job well…one of its advantages is it has two hard disks with RAID0 technology (google). But that’s considering its HD not DV
