I recently purchased a sony hdr-cx160 digital camcorder and now i would like to start making and editing short videos of my grandkids and family. After some research I was told that the macbook pro would be my best choice. My question is would the macbook pro 13.3 inch with i5, 4gb memory and 320 gb hard drive be a good choice as this unit is currently in my price range and also is small enough to travel with. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

Hi and welcome to the forums.
Yes and yes. For what you want to do that will suffice. But have you checked out the Refurbished Mac Computers - Refurbished Laptops, Notebooks & Desktop Computers - Apple Store (U.S.) where you could even get the 15" if its around your price range. I see one there for 1269 a saving of $530.
A lot of people go the refurb way as you get the same warranty and telephone support as buying it new. And these things are basically new. You can't tell at all.

Something to think about bc the screen real estate would be a little added bonus.
But the 13" will do above and beyond what you want.

HTH
