Processor comparisons

Hi, I am in the market for a new laptop. My current laptop is fine for everything I do, except for video editing (for which I use Adobe Premiere Elements 8). For that task, it's just way under powered. The current laptop is a Toshiba Satellite A215, with an AMD Turion 1.8 GHz processor.
I would love to hear some recommendations for a new laptop that will do the editing job easily without breaking the bank.
Thanks!
Linda

    I think the new Adobe Premiere can utilize the GPU for processing, so you might want to pick up something with a descent vid card, skip anything that has Intel HD or ATI 4200/4250 parts.

    This lappy is pricy, but has some serious hardware, including a sandy bridge quad core and a good Nvidia GPU for CUDA and DirectCU support

  2. Can elements utilise intels quicksync?
  3. I dont know, but it doesn't matter, the sandy bridge i7 is the fastest non server grade processes on the market.
