I don't care about hard disk size, but want to run a media server and be able to simultaneously do surfing, run office tools, and some video capture (via USB) and editing.
Somebody make a chart!
I do some video editing at work and I find that "business" PCs are not set up for video editing.
They seem to share OS memory with video memory, where dedicated video editing machines have as much (if not more) memory on the video card for rendering than the PC has!
On business machines, it seems that, with a lot of video being processed, it sucks so much OS "shared" memory that the unit becomes unpredicatable and even freezes.
Perhaps someone more involved in video editing can add to or correct what I wrote.
Like Lake Wobegon, but without the lake.
