I'm on a film making course that uses FCP7 on it's Macs, and I can only afford a very low priced Mac. I'm not too clued up on them and I'm wondering if any of these will be up for the job? Just basic HD video editing, mostly short films.

G'day and welcome to the forums.

Give the first two a miss big time if you want to run later operating systems. Regarding the last can't find a 2.26 iMac in Mactracker but there is a 2009 2.26GHz Mac Pro. If so that would be the best option by far. You may find 4GB minimum for memory.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
