I assume you must have an integrated chipset.

yep. :)

Yep, you need lots of ram and lots of power for video editing.  64-bit is 
already supported by some of the leading video editing packages (maybe most, 
not sure).

Heh, I did the same.  Unfortunately, I jumped on the bandwagon too early 
and got the one with the smaller screen and the 3 cell battery.   I can use 
it... but I am really disappointed that I don't have the larger screen version 
and longer battery life.

Also the competition for eee pc provided several better alternatives.  MSI 
had one really good product which my brother bought.   Alas, I can't justify 
another purchase, so I try to make do with my eee pc when I go on trips.
