You want 2 gigs of ram and a dual core cpu of 2 GHZ or more and decent video.
Forget dual hard drives
Here's the specs on a dell refurbished, this is minimal for video editing
Inspiron 15 (1545) Laptop: Intel Pentium Dual Core T4400 (2.2GHz/800Mhz FSB/1MB cache)

Of course I would rather have a bigger screen, a little more horse power and HD
