    Laptop/netbook advice...

    I'm planning to purchase a laptop/netbook, I want it for multitasking purposes, for example watching a youtube video, playing music in the background, browsing with many tabs open, whilst editing videos etc.
    Is 4gb worth of ram enough for this?

    What do you think of this netbook, http://www.johnlewis.com/hp-pavilion...=c&tmcampid=73

    Also if you could can you recommend me a laptop/netbook, My max budget is 350.

    if you're gunna edit videos then you need a good CPU and a lot of RAM

    4GB is serviceable but you will see slowdowns, especially if you intend to run video editing and multitask at the same time.

    but more importantly, that CPU will take an age to render videos at HD resolutions.

    i'd go for this one @ 349.99

    much better CPU - i3-3110M
    4GB RAM
    Bigger hard drive - 1TB

    however, battery life is down by some four hours.

    8gb ram should be good enough, what editing software are you using?

    If you want good brands, I can vouch for Toshiba and HP.

    I would recommend just going for laptops rather than netbooks as their more geared towards browsing the web rather than doing anything else, also I don't think many of them come with cd/dvd drives.

    I think 8GB ram would be better for editing as it uses a lot of power to render and upload stuff if that is the goal!
