I have a 2ghz core 2 duo with 2gb of Ram in a whitebook and can edit high def without any problem in both FCE and in Imovie. So the ability to edit high def is not an issue.

The problem with the Alu Macbooks is the lack of firewire, if you have a tape camera you are pretty much stuck as firewire is the only method of import. Also if you are using a external as a scratch drive for your video source files it is my understanding you have to use a firewire external.

That combined with the ability to boot from a firewire drive and not from a USB drive really has me thinking Apple's decision to scrap the firewire port on the Alu-books was a dumb one.
