I have just recieved a camcorder that allows me to make my own home movies in WMV HD 1280x720. If, in Windows Movie Maker, I save the final edited file as something like WMV widescreen DVD quality, I know obviously, the quality will be downgraded a bit, but will I still get a good quality video clip?

DVD quality is still quite good, in the 720x512 (I think) range. Its still not as good as HD but WMV does have a HD option I believe.

Moviemaker (vista's) could also make HD movies. Why don't do that? (it is the .wmv file, but with HD quality)

Widescreen DVDs in Australia seem to be 1024x576 resolution.

So, becasue my new camcoder can film in 1280x720 WMV HD, it would also make sense, when importing it into Vista's Movie Maker to save the final video clip actually in 1280x720 WMV HD format too from the drop-down list?

And if I had a blu-ray DVD writer, could I use a special burning application that lets me transfer my WMV HD collection to a blu-ray disc whilst retaining it's HD quality?

I think Nero can do this. I never tryied, so I can't give you the answer. I think it will have the same quality as it has on the computer. If you've got a tft widescreen (of about 24") then it is possible to check it. You can also check it on 21" (more common), and see if the quility is the same between camera and the file moviemaker made. I think a burnaplication won't downlgrade the quility, but as a said, I don't know for sure.

Maybe this is what for you: http://www.jakeludington.com/hddvd/2007 ... ovies.html

My laptop is widescreen, 15.4 inch 1280x800. Will this be suitable for checking how the content will play? And it has an NVIDIA Geforce Go 6100 video chip and the Purevideo decoder installed. Will the Purevideo decoder be benefical for playing back these video clips?

WMV HD (which uses VC-1) is not as CPU-intensive as H.264 for decoding, so any not-way-too-old computer with a large enough screen should be able to decode 720p VC-1.
