    Video Editing on MacBook
    I am in the market for a new Mac. Among the more demanding tasks, I would like to be able to efficiently transfer video from a video camera to the Mac and edit in iMovie, and also use EyeTV to record video to transfer to an iPod.

    Would a MacBook suffice (not really interested in a MacBook Pro) or do I need to go with an iMac?

    Thanks in advance.

    Great forums!

    Transferring movies from a videocam to iMovie is flawless (with a firewire cable). As for your EyeTV thing I have no experience.

    Elgato EyeTV 250 works perfectly on my C2D 2.16GHz MacBook. It does it's stuff while I surf the web. I edit content captured with it in iMovie 08 and send it off to my iPod with no problems. No kernel panics, no restarts and very few beachballs so far.

    That way you'll be a mile away from him, and you'll have his shoes.
