Default I need somebody who knows thier stuff.

Basically after Christmas I will have about 300. (English Pounds).

Bearing in mind there will be huge price cuts on laptops since there will be huge January sales.

All I definetely want in the laptop is a decent amount of memory and for it to be able to use programs like vegas without lagging.

I just want some people to show me some laptops that fit all those categories because I don't have a clue.

Thanks.

You will never find a computer that doesn't lag on the previewscreen in Vegas.

Well one of the best laptops for my price range, 300 plus all the January sales, hold on let me convert it to Dollars now, but if anybody can find out for that'd be nice.

Roughly $450 I will have, roughly though.

Hm, if I was you I would ethier.

-Get upgrades for your current computer, more RAM etc.
-Save until you can get a decent laptop. 450 isn't enough

Save up for a decent one. Cheap laptops are nothing but hassle.

Sucks how much the pound is worth now. Not even 1.5 anymore.

Used to be 1 = $2.

I remember those days too.

Don't buy a laptop now, save up. If you are going to be editing stuff get as good a battery/charger (above 60 Watts if you can, every bit of power you can get makes a difference) as you can and at least a 2.0GHz Dual Core, not a Pentium or Celeron Dual Core.
