i was fortunate to have a very decent PC for editing.
before my photography madness. i was mad about computers so my systems are quite blazing fast.
currently my system is a amd 3800+ with 2gb of ram and 80gb harddisk. this harddisk do not go to the net. it is solely for editing. i have another computer that does the web stuff. so i am assured of the fastest speed my system can provide.
once the photos are done. they will be then transferred into my 320gb hdd to store. that is after i have burnt a copy as backup.
system fast... brains must be creative also
