So it is finally time for me to buy a new computer. Let me give you an idea of what I'm currently working with (and other than the periodic browser crash, my current computer works pretty well).

Manufacturer: Toshiba
Model: Satellite C655D
Processor: AMD-350 Processor 1.60GHz
RAM: 3GB (2.6GB) usable
285 GB Harddrive
System Type: 64 bit OS
Windows 7

I know nothing about processors. But this is a 10 year old computer. I know the RAM is low though! So not knowing the technical stuff, I'm wondering what the minimum requirements are these days for an editing computer. (If you want to make a case for desktop vs laptop, be my guest). Also not sure I completely understand Solid State Drives except they are more expensive, but lead to much greater speed.

Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated.

Currently Editing: Taxi Driver Rescored (Refn/Drive/Cliff Martinez Style)
