OK, so I like to think that I know a fairly good bit about cars/engines/automotive electronics/etc; now, take the exact opposite of that, and that's what I know about computers. I will not even pretend that I know the first thing about this stuff. I've had the same laptop since '06 or so, and it's a dinosaur (Compaq something or other)...watching videos sucks, editing videos sucks, it's generally a slow and clunky piece of shit. Since I'm not a gamer, and all I do with my laptop is work-related stuff (wiring diagrams, repair guides, emails, etc), I haven't ever really had a need for anything more from my laptop - I bought a PS3 last year, and since I'm capable of transferring movie files onto a flash drive I can watch whatever I downlo...er...buy online, and I've got Netflix and YouTube on the PS3, so that's not an issue. One thing that I am going to have an issue with very soon, however, is video editing. With the Pikes Peak race coming up, and the race car on the verge of being completed, I'm going to have to start editing and uploading videos of the car; once I get to Colorado, I'll be editing and uploading daily video updates from the Peak....and I already know that isn't gonna happen with my current setup. I would like to stay under $250, but can stretch $300 if I absolutely must - I simply can NOT afford more than that, though. I've been looking at something called a 'Chromebook', but I'm not really sure how that works and if there is 'decent' (read: good enough for YouTube) video editing software available for those (or what those actually are, really)... Can anyone recommend something? Is my budget for this simply not achievable? Anyone got something laying around with a decent video card they wanna sell? Halp!
