Hello all, I am a PC user (possibly a future ex-PC user). I do have four Ipods, so I'm not completely new to Apple. I have a specific computer need that I am told a Mac can meet. What I'm wondering is 1) can in fact Mac do what I need and 2) should I get a Mac Book, MB Pro, or would a Mini do the trick. Here's what I need. I teach a class at a university on film. I want to be able to make short clips from some of the films we view (and others I might want to use as examples in class). These clips would be no more than two minutes long. This is legal, by the way, as a recent Supreme Court ruling stated that film scholars may make such short clips for the purposes of their research and for teaching. I would not ever copy the entire film (I won't even show a film I taped off tv, only films I have purchased). The problem on my PC is that every software program I have tried doesn't know that I have special "rights" and the copyright protection won't let me make these clips. Can anyone give me advice on this? Thanks.
