Need an ultraportable laptop for video editing.

I’m looking to do some extensive traveling, backpacking style, and I need a laptop that I can carry with me on my back along with all my other clothes and stuff.


Can anyone recommend a laptop with enough power to process video? Windows only.


My current laptop is


Core i5 480M 2.67GHz




AMD HD5650


but it’s a big 15 incher and a bit on the heavy side.


It processes decently but the AMD card is probably holding it back, right? I should try for a card with a nVidia card? Is there any hardware acceleration with AMD cards for processing? Or would it be equivalent to just having an integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000 video card?
