Big problem for Editing Video on a Laptop, Is you are limited by the Onboard Graphics, But by the looks of the above the PCMCIA slot takes a 1x Express Card slot (34/54mm) Also it as three USB, but No Firewire. Most Good Video Camcorders use Firewire

Is there such a thing as a plug in Firewire Card Etc? I assume that apart from No firewire the rest of the package is OK! at that price.

Yes you can get a PCMCIA Firewire Card That's what I use 2 port
