    No, I haven't seen Nathan Barley. Worth googling? What is the gist?

    As I mentioned, I will be building a computer with the help of a friend. I will buy something powerful enough to get the job done, no more. I totally get your asset/liability in relation to computers, considering the rapid rate of development.

    Regarding the software, I have done extensive research and discussed with several qualified people the various softwares to use, which is why I don't need to discuss them now. Basically I already have a software package on my current computer and it did not run the software efficiently. Thus, new hardware is required. Hence the thread.

    Dell is good, but I think that you will get more for your money with HP.
    If you cannot max out the entire configuration, then you need to be particularly sure that you get the maximum specs for the video card, HDD with 7200 rpm speed (instead of 5400 rpm, which is common in notebooks to keep noise, power, and heat to a minimum), and RAM. Although you will probably be using external HDDs, some of the latest notebooks come with TWO HDDs.

    I was going to post a link to the 2-HDD HP notebook, but I was blocked because I was a "Noob"....
    Anyway, do a search for "HP dv7 envy", and it should pop up there.

    Speaking of the DIY route, you can do a little bit of both by buying a minimum configuration and switching out components yourself -- for example, adding the 2nd hard drive yourself to the HP notebook above, adding RAM yourself, and so on. Price both yourself and see which is better, but I would not recommend it if you have not built a computer yourself. Notebooks can be much more difficult to build than desktops!

    Another advantage of buying from a manufacturer rather than building it yourself is that there are less device driver conflicts since all those kinks are already worked out.

    Good luck!

    Just compare similar configurations on dell.com and hp.com. I have done several comparisons, and I found that hp.com offered more for your money, particularly for high-end configurations.
    Now, the prices and suppliers for both Dell and HP are constantly changing, and so this may change, but it's easy enough to price compare with these sites.

    Funny I didn't say Dell.com I said Dell Outlet.

    I was just trying to provide useful information.
    If you have better or more accurate information, typically, you should just provide it.
    We'll all be impressed with the awesomeness of your knowledge, and fade in the background.
    I am not going to be dragged into an argument questioning others' knowledge (or lack of) when the numbers (prices) will speak for themselves.

    I will say, however, that I have been doing video editing on various computers for over 10 years, and so I am acutely aware of the hardware requirements.

    You provided no useful information. You started providing your opinion about something no one asked about: the price differences between dell.com and hp.com. This is called a "derail".

    And now you're derailing the thread further by crying about being asked for sources for your claim that:

    You said YOU had done the comparisons, yet when asked to show them or be specific, you got upset at being questioned. Now it's MY job to provide information? Typical noob.

    Oh now here's where you get even angier because someone didn't bite on your "I did the comparisons" bit and take your word for it. Maybe the reason I didn't bite was because Dell Outlet is one thing and comparing current hp.com and dell.com is another.

    Again: what numbers. So far you've wasted lot of text telling us instead of showing us. This is Bullshido. Don't do that here.
