    A friend asked me if she could do video editing on her laptop, a subject on which I have zero experience so I am turning to you for expert help.

    She hasn't decided on a video-editing program yet, so I don't know what system requirements are. It's light-duty, for-fun video editing, but she wants it to work well enough that it won't provoke swearing at the computer.

    Specs are Intel GMA X3100 GM 965 chipset, Intel CORE2DUO PROC.T8100 processor, 2GB PC2-5300 DDR2 667MHZ RAM, 100 GB 7200 rpm HD. (it's a year-old Thinkpad T61 that was not intended for gaming or video editing)

    thanks!!

    Well, she could start out with windows movie maker. It should come installed with windows, but if not, it's a free download from microsoft
