You're probably going to have to spend more money than you mentioned to run those programs with any sort of speed. Photoshop maybe, but Premiere? Good luck...

agreed the applications you are describing require quite a bit of juice. You might be able to pull of a desktop powerful enough at that price but with a laptop your low in your cost evaluation

For your price range and requirements I would check craigslist.

get an Acer, and don't listen to these people, they have no idea what they're talking about.

Go to Slickdeals.net and set up a deal alert for "laptop"

I've seen at least 10 laptops in that price range in the past week that could run premiere.

Just remember you need a 64 bit system.

@iggz: thanks for that site. I had already done a little research and knew i could find something in that price range to run those programs, what i was looking more than anything were good deals. I', gonna set that alert and see what i can get.
