    I am using a Sony HandyCam (DCR-HC38) to stream video to the Internet through the USB port to ustream.tv. I need an inexpensive XP machine to hook the video camera to. Would a Netbook have enough power to do the job? The factors that concern me are:
    Does a Netbook have enough processing power to use a wireless connection and process Flash (which ustream uses) while streaming through the USB port?
    Thanks in advance.

    As long as you have USB 2.0 it should be fine

    Most of the NetBooks that I have seen are near the bottom of the line. With Windows 7 Home Basic or even Starter. One Gig of ram and not much of a graphic device. Barely meets the requirements for Windows 7. NO CD/DVD reader or burner and not a top of the line wireless device, as they seem to run real slow.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
