i would guess you'd want a external hard drive regardless of what kind of video your editing. A laptop hard drive probably would get filled up really quickly otherwise.

I dont know about getting around the no-firewire issue... i dont even know if you cant even hook up a monitor with firewire from what i can tell....

maybe you would have to load the footage on the hard drive before you use your new macbook...i dont know if HD will work that well on USB...ive heard of dropped frames and stuff?

since your old macbook has firewire 400 i think, its probably possible, but i dont know if it will really run well...
