    Sony isn't that restrictive.
    They very generously allows you to install the software on as many
    machines as you want (as long as each machine is properly registered)
    with the understanding that you'll only be using one machine at a
    time.
    For example, a laptop and a desktop or, in my case, a work machine and
    a home machine.
    This applies to all Sony software such as Vegas, Sound Forge, Acid,
    etc.

    I fail to see the point in complaining about this as registration is
    quick and painless.
    Put in a new mobo and you'll need to register it again.
    Put in a new drive C and you'll need to register it again.
    Unlike other companies, Sony is very generous in what they allow you
    to do.

    IBM has long had the option of putting a 2nd HD in a sled that replaces the
    CD/DVD drive. I presume others do too.

    I think because disks are essential computer components, and they always have
    readily accessible individual serial numbers.

    A notebook is not the ideal platform for video editing. Editing requires a
    huge amount of hardware, and whenever you elect to use a portable computer,
    you sacrifice horsepower for portability (and you pay more for the horsepower
    you get).

    The Vegas forums are full of users who have been using laptops for
    years without any problems.
    A desktop can give you more 'bang for the buck' but you can edit with
    Vegas on a laptop.

    - keyboard
    - larger monitor
    buht bie then, yuh mite as wel
    yooz a desk-top kum-pyoo-tr,
    I rec-con...... 8^)

    Maybe for those who must edit "on-the-go", or just save files,
    the laptop makes sense for video, but otherwise.................

    Why not? They sell I7 Laptops with 6 or more gb ram and dual drives. It is nearly as powerful as any
    desktop. I am a desktop guy and do not have much need to edit on a laptop unless I am able to go to
    a beach and begin editing. Either way, they are equally as powerful these days.
