Hey all, this is a buying advice question for a good friend of mine that's a film student at school with me. She's looking into buying her first Mac and wants some advice on what to buy. Since I'm personally a history/intended pre-law student, I never do film editing, so I don't know what's good for that, so I'm deferring this question to you guys. My first instinct is to recommend the iMac, since it seems like the most bang for the buck. At the same time, however, I don't know how effective the iMac is for movie editing (doesn't it have slower RAM, bus speeds, etc. than the PM?) The second option I guess would be to purchase an older Dual-G4 PowerMac. Of course, the third option would be to shell out the dough for a G5 PowerMac, but I'm sure she'd rather not do that if it's not absolutely essential. Any filmmakers out there have advice? Thanks.
