              If you enjoy regular freezes, crashes and a speed slower than molasses in winter, you can try, but don't complain if it does not work. That system is at least 150 times slower than a fast system and does not meet minimum requirements for editing DV, let alone anything more than that.

                I am afraid that the Toshiba will not run Premiere CS5 as its screen resolution of 1366x768 does not meet the minimum required resolution, which is1600x900. Also it does not have a dedicated graphics card.


                If all you want to edit is HDV then I can guarantee that the Sony VPCF13M8E/B (sold in the UK) will run CS5 perfectly well, and without seeming sluggish.  I cannot say what its capabilities are with 1920x1080 material as I have no experience of that, but I would be surprised if it did not work fairly well, provided you keep the layers of video to 1 or 2, givne its performance with HDV.


                I researched this extensively a few months back, and this was the cheapest laptop that I could locate in the UK that would run CS5.


                Bear in mind that your laptop also needs an NVidia graphics card with at least 1GB of its own memory built in, or you will be without MPE, then Harm's analogy of Molasses might have some substance!
