You most likely will need a USB video capture device and use the AV cable to connect the camcorder to the capture device since you don't have a slot on the side of the laptop to add a Firewire port card.
Examples of USB video capture devices (not a complete list):
TOTMC® USB 2.0 Video Capture Adapter for Windows Xp/2000/ Vista/ Win7/Win 8
Diamond VC500 USB 2.0 One Touch Video Capture Device
ION Video 2 PC Analog To Digital USB Video Converter for PC
