    2006 Black macbook imovie capture through firewire.

    Would a 2006 Macbook A1181 have any trouble capturing vhs through a canopus advc55? Or even hd through a hdv camcorder?

    As this macbook only has 2 gigabytes of ram.

    You need a fast hard drive to capture to, but otherwise should be OK, at least for VHS. I used to capture on my G3 Wallstreet. RAM doesn't matter for capture. Editing HD could be a challenge, however.

    It should be OK, certainly for the VHS stuff. As HDV camcorders were around then, I'm thinking it should cope with that as well.

    Do you already have a Canopus? If not one of these will do just as well, and do it cheaper:
