Intel I3-370M Processor @ 2.4GHz
Intel HD Graphics

8GB DDR3 RAM
700GB Hard Disk @ 6 GB/s

1.3MP Built In Web Cam
1x DVD Multi Recorder

3 x USB 2.0

Heres a review of the laptop, id say it reflects it accurately but the model they tested had 2.5GHz clock speed but its practically no difference

What sort of port does it use for video capture? Is it Firewire or something else?

Maybe I should ask the question a different way.

My DV camera has a connecting cable which plugs into the camera at one end and into a Firewire socket at the back of my (rather elderly) old PC at the other end. Can I plug it into this laptop in place of my old PC? If not, does the laptop come with the necessary to allow the camera and laptop to talk to each other?
