Well I've never really used a forum but this looked like the right place to post this question. I got a Sony hd video camera bout a year or so ago and have been so fed up using a windows computer that can't even play the video just chop chop chop. So makes editing nearly impossible. I have heard Mac is the way to go for video editing but I'm not sure which iMac would suit my needs. Processor, ssd or not, video card etc. It will be for somewhat big use at times but not doing some 20 hour documentary. Is the base model a good choice or do I really need the full every upgrade model. Thanks any advice would help. Ps. Would going with a older dual core iMac be a good cheap option? Will strictly be used for occasional hd video editing no gaming, no Internet nothing.
