Looking to possibly buy a Mac at work for video editing. We want to play around with Final Cut Pro and currently only have Windows PCs, so... we need a Mac to do this. The options appear to be: 1) Mac Pro desktop (quad Xeon) starts at $2500 + monitor (we may have an extra LCD) 2) iMac desktop (Core 2 duo) starts at $1199 3) Macbook Pro (notebook) starts at $1199 I'm tending to think #3 is the worst solution, I don't want to do editing on a notebook. My biggest concern about picking #2 is that it won't be fast enough. #1 would be nice but it's double the price of #2. Budget is a big concern. If anyone has any experience, will the Core 2 iMac (3.06 GHz dual core) be fast enough for editing? Even with HD? I won't be making motion pictures, just like 2-10 minute videos for Youtube etc., sometimes using several cameras/sources including HD. Cars, 30 FPS stuff. I'll rely on external storage for the most part. Mac Pro would be awesome, but damn it's pricey. And what's with that 3 GB of memory vs 4 GB standard from the iMac?
