OS Win XP service pack 2 Laptop Acer Aspire 3000 1.60Ghtz AMD processor 192 Installed memory slot 1 Dimm1 empty slot 2 Dimm 2 has 256 MB - capacity 1GB EXternal Hard Drives: Seagate + Maxtor =600 GB

Hello Folks,

I'm in a bit of a fix. Having recently bought a JVC camcorder, and software to edit it on - i'm not convinced that even if i upgrade my RAM to 1GB ( which i believe is the max for this laptop), that i will be able to load and run the software to edit my camcorder HDD footage, and also digital photos from my Canon Ixus 75.

Will both the photo and video software run effectively to allow me to edit photo and video footage? Or should i invest in a lower end laptop with a dual core processor with 3 GB Ram with Vista installed. There's no point me upgrading the Ram if the software is simply too slow. Could you kindfolks out there offer any useful advice?

I forget to add - System requirements: Paint shop Pro Photo X2: 500MB Ram (768 recommended) Ulead VS 11.5+: 512mb Ram (1 GB or above recommended)

What are people's Views of this software?

Thanks a million,

Jazzymazzy.

Photo and video editing are resource intensive applications, which with your current computer even with the RAM maxed out may still be slow by comparison to a new computer with the much faster CPU and RAM.

Your computer has two expansion slot with a maximum of 1GB of RAM per slot with PC2700. For good modules like Crucial you will be looking at about $120.00 to max it out.

You will be a lot happier and have made the better choice by investing in a new computer. The difference in performance will be very obvious.

Hi,

Thanks for the advice. I'll wait to see if anyone else offers any further advice, and then ask the moderators to close the post.

Thanks again,

Jazzymazzy.

It's interesting that of 81 views only 1 person has had the courtesy to reply. That's a shame. However, could i ask the moderators to close this thread as i don't anticipate any more feedback.

Regards,

Jazzymazzy.

The members here are very opinionated and have no problem expressing their views, so I have to wonder if perhaps my suggestion was in keeping with the general consensus of what others had been thinking as well.

If my suggestion wasn't what you were hoping for, you should have asked for other options that you had in mind.

I will see if I can get a Moderator to close this for you.
