What kind of camera are you using btw? The lag could be caused by trying to edit a file type that's not really meant to be edited. GoPro mp4's for example really need to be transcoded to edit, cause the native codec is kind of a pain and a resource hog.

I have premiere elements 3 on my laptop running XP.

Once you start the render you have to leave it alone for 12 hours, but that's not a problem since we have 2 other computers in the house and mobile devices.

I am using a Hero2 (MP4 files) and then some files from my T2i (MOV files) - I looked around and untill I buy some software (like premiere or something) i am just going to use WMM/WLMM because its free, works well enough and seems to work fine if i convert the files to something like AVI format

2gb ram really has no business doing any video editing. 8 is better, or just try not to render full 1080p videos. they'll come out fine but it'll just take forever.

More is obviously better. In my case, that's the max the laptop can take. I'll tell you it works but rendering takes a little while, so goof around online with a different device. My laptop isn't heavy duty, but it's not a netbook like the OP says his is. I also have a video card in mine and that's something that a netbook isn't likely to even have as an option.

he has a netbook?

the video is probably fine. he might be lagging just because netbooks lag when they play high quality videos. i know mine can't even run hero hd 1 recordings without lagging.

Looks like maybe two systems are being used/tried.

oh yea, I missed that. No way a netbook is going to be able to play back those files smoothly, MAYBE if you transcode it.

Just use a desktop a netbook wont be practical. (is doable) Also piratebay is just free software, music, media etc. Youtube will tell you how to use it smoothly.
