I think that's a bit underpowered with a small HDD and the Turion processor has been around for a while, though just for surfing etc it should be fine. When you say, though, you're going to use it "for video", what exactly do you mean? It will be no good at all for video editing.

I think you can get better for your money. I have seen similar specifications elsewhere for under £600; you should look around a bit more I think.

buy vidio mean. from the camcorder.edit then to disc

In that case you'll need rather more processing grunt than that spec. Does it have to be a laptop? You'll get much better value for money with a desktop.

Compare it to this Acer click here

The Core 2 Duo knocks spots off the Turion, the HDD is 120GB

The graphics are better and only £529,00.

I am not advocating the Acer just pointing out you can get much more for the money
