I have CaseCat8. I currently own a Toshiba Satellite Pro (6 years old) w/Windows 2000 XP, Pentium 4 that has served me well. Lately though when I insert a key memory stick, a box pops up saying my computer is too slow to support the stick. I want to stick with Toshiba because I've never had any problems, but now I know whatever I'm going to buy will have the new Windows (what's it called?) and not XP, so does anybody have any advice for what to buy or what to steer clear of? I'm planning on keeping this one as a backup, and using the new one for depo work and editing. Should I buy a notebook? Stay away from those? Please help with your sound advice. I know I can count on all of you to help me....!!!!!
