    This is a bit off-topic from your post...but you do realize that:

    - buying a Macintosh computer
    - learning a new OS,
    - and learning a somewhat different video editing program

    ...you're going to be for quite a learning curve?? What sort of Macintosh and Mac OS experience do you have?

    I'm only asking...so that your transition experience is as positive as possible.

    You probably want Final Cut Pro. I believe it's $200. It's what the pros use.

    You have a number of alternatives available to you as well, including Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Symphony, and Media Composer among others. Prices vary.

    Pinnacle oddly enough makes a version of their software available for the iPad (?!) but not the Mac. I have not tested it, but it would have to be something less than their desktop software I would think.
