In respect of the second part of your question, the iMac as proposed by Rax0rEdge can easily handle Aperture 3 and indeed Final Cut Pro let alone the Express versions.
I have used both without difficulty on my older 21.5 iMac (8GB) with core duo processors and on the 2010 i7 iMac (16GB) and SSD.
On each, video editing is handled fine (faster on the newer machine) and I also use both as an OsiriX Diagnostic Workstation. Again no problem handling this.
You will have no problem. I cannot speak for Adobe Premiere or Element; but cannot imagine a difficulty there.
Hope this helps.
