Actually the shiny graphics work on my other half's IBM Thinkpad with a 
Celeron M 1.4 and Intel on-board graphics, so I'd say any 3D graphics 
card (ATI or NVidia) would happily do the job.  I'd think it would be 
the same for video editing too (although for Video Editing, Firewire 
*might* be useful if you're going to be importing video from a DV video 
camera, oh and bags of hard drive space regardless).
