Hello, I'm a newbie to this forum but have lurked for a couple of years waiting to buy a new laptop to replace my 5 year old Sony Vaio PCG-NV55E/B. I think the time is ripe to move to Apple since I was really considering to buy another Sony Vaio with Vista. But since reading up on the Vista debacle, I was put off to purchasing a new laptop. Now I am really considering to buy a Black MacBook whenever it is upgraded according to all the recent rumors about Montevina and the new specs. I bought a Sony HDR-SR12 and a 40" Sony Bravia F-1 here in Japan but would like to use Apple and OS-X to edit my videos using iMovie or upgrading by buying another video editing software. My question is, will a Black MacBook or the upcoming MacBook be able to edit High Definition video footage? I also plan to purchase a 23" Cinema Display with wireless keyboard and mouse using the MacBook as my main computer. I'm really torn between doing this or buying a 15" MBP because I want to use the MacBook to edit the videos on the go too. I'm just starting to pick up my favorite hobby of videography and just wondering how to go about purchasing my first Mac that will suit my budget and video editing needs.
