OK, it seems from reading all of the TM700 posts, this is a pretty good camera with future technology (60p). I am an AV noobie, but do like to stay ahead of technology as much as I can.

I have a home computer that is about 2 years old (HP Pavilion - Core 2 Quad processor, 5 Gig RAM, Vista Home 64-bit) and a 2006 Sony SXRD XBR2 1080p for a TV. Everything is networked together.

My question is this - if I get the TM700, do I need to upgrade my computer with a faster processor assuming I want to shoot in 60p most of the time? The camera is for our first child in 3 months and I doubt I will do a lot of editing. I just want to view it on my TV and then share with my family via YouTube or something similar (they all live out of state).

Thx in advance.

I view my native TM700 1080p60 videos in Windows 7 Media Center that is on my 2.26Ghz Dual Core Mac Mini with 4GB DDR3 Ram and the latest Nvidia 9400m graphic drivers. It is hooked up to a 37" 1080p Vizio HDTV and also have a 32" 1080p Samsung, 42" 1080p Sharp and 47" 1080p Vizio that I use in other rooms. I have the 1080p60 videos on external 1TB WD 7200rpm Black Cavier FALS FW800 and 1.5TB Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM USB 2.0 hard drives and the videos play perfect 99% of the time and mostly only have some dropped frames at the start of each video clip for a second. I would think a Quad Core should not have any problems .

Thanks Joe. Do you save the videos on your external HD and then access them thru MediaPlayer. I think I can get to my MediaPlayer thru my XBox 360 (networked with my desktop). I'd rather avoid plugging the Camcorder into the TV directly via HDMI since I will want to save the video anyways.

Yes, I save the 1080p60 videos to my external HDs and some to spare SDHC cards that I pop into my PS3 SDHC slot. I also burned 1080p60 videos to DVD-Rs that I play on my PS3 that is hooked up to a 42" 1080p Sharp HDTV or 47" 1080p Vizio. The PS3 plays the 1080p60 videos in slow motion with sound that the kids like to watch.

Slow motion on your PS3? I play all my 1080p/60p videos flawlessly from the PS3 HDD or external drive. Make sure you turn off Mosquito, Block, and frame noise reduction on the PS3 while playing or before playing the videos.

OP: I work with the 1080p/60p videos on my 3 year old dual-boot Macbook on the WinXP side.
