Hi here is a question that keeps me awake at night. i need a laptop to edit video i need something fast that suports avid express pro and final cut pro. untill yesterday there was only one option: power book. but now a possibly more powerful machine is around the MacBook with intel dual core procesors.
the problem with the power book is that it could not compete with the AMD Athlon 64 that i'm used to and it seems that MacBook being new may not run final cut and also it's Ati x1600 card may not be good enough for video editing.
is there anyone who could coment on this? i know little about mac and all say here is what other people have toldme. it is kind of urgent PLEASE

No one yet knows how the new MacBooks perform, wait until February then ask again.I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

X1600 is a better GPU than the Radeon 9700.
I don't see whats not to like about the MacBooks except that you'll have to wait a month before you can get one.
