    Is it enough? Maybe.
    It depends on what you want to do.

    I edit AVCHD+Sony EX1 combined footage on the road regularly on a Centrino Core2Duo from a travel USB2 drive. What a pleasure to get home to my main edit station.

    I can't stress enough the importance of removing ALL the pre-installed junk that come with an off-the-shelf system. Even if it means installing windows from another box.
    btw, 'Dark umber brown' makes a smokin' system! :~)

        The processor and ram should be OK for most purposes, but the screen/monitor resolution strikes me as a bit limiting.
        Will you need firewire?
        Will you be using external drives for video storage?
