 I'm currently using a 6-7yo Dell Lat600 that has served me well, but it's become obsolete. I need something that will handle HD vids from my camera....720P & 1080P......not worried about playing bluray's on it.......... I don't game & I don't run a lot of programs.........just surfing & storing vids so I don't need a lot of capability. I've found 2 laptops that seem to fit this bill (+ they're fairly inexpensive which I like)...........can I get some opinions from some of you as to which may serve me best?

Dell

Toshiba

 Thanks......

I saw a computer and its the best idea out there. Eventually, everyone will copy it and all phones will have some type of adapter to make it compatible.
