Hello. I am looking for some advice...I hope some of you can help me with your opinions. I just bought Nero 8 Ultra at Best Buy for $59 today. A great deal from what I have seen. My problem is...I don't know which of my two computers is best set up to handle the workload. I've read that Nero can be demanding on resources. These are my options...

My Desktop -
AMD Athlon 64 3800+ 2.4 GHz
512 KB L2 cache
3 GB of PC3200 DDR SDRAM 400 MHz
NVIDIA GeForce 6150LE 256MB (shared)
200 GB (SATA) 7200 rpm HDD
16X DVD(+/-)R/RW (+/-)R DL LightScribe drive
Windows XP Pro (Media Center) SP2

My Laptop
AMD Turion 64 X2 1.6 GHz Dual Core Mobile TL-50
2 X 256KB L2 Cache
1 GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) (2 Dimm)
NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 (UMA) up to 128MB (shared)
100GB 5400RPM (SATA)
Super Multi 8X DVD±R/RW with Double Layer Support
Windows XP Pro (Media Center) SP2

I'm new to video editing and burning DVD's, so researching all this stuff has been pretty mind boggling. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Your desktop, primilary because its easier to upgrade for the future e.g if you run out of HDD you can easily replace/add, memory is cheaper, if you need additional cards your desktop is the way to go IMHO.
If all else fails, hit the reset button.
