    Is my iMac capable of handling HD video?
    I plan on upgrading my 6 year old Mini-DV camcorder in the near future and would like to be able to continue to import and edit my footage when I make the switch to an HD camcorder. My computer specs are the following:

    Late 2007 20" Aluminum iMac
    2.4 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo
    4GB DDR2 Ram
    ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro 256 MB
    Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2

    I use Final Cut Express 4 to do video work. Do you think I'll be able to handle HD video? I understand I'll have to convert AVCHD files first, but I just want to know if my machine is strong enough. Thanks

    iMac 2010 27" QuadI7, iMac 2008 10.10.5, Macbook2007 10.7.5, Mac Mini 10.7.5, iPhone 3GS Note 8!
    I have never tried to Edit HD on that machine, but that i my current Mac that I use for most everything. It plays any HD without an issue. I am sure you can edit HD also. It's not going to be a fast as a newer Quad Core or I7 system, but I am sure it will work.
