Let me just say that I posted this at the Macworld forums, and I am posting here to get more oppinions (Macworld is being very slow today....) I am looking for a Mac laptop. I am trying to convince myself that I dont need a Powerbook, but I am not sure. Can an iBook handle light video editing? I am talking about making videos that are under 10 minutes (most probably under 5), and for personal use. The videos wont be for work, just for fun. Same goes for Photoshop. I will be using it for personal use, not for any kind of job, I dont think. People say that for editing photos and videos, the Powerbook would be a better choice, but I have a feeling that my editing is simple enough for an iBook. Just as a side note, I may have found a really good deal on an iBook, but it only has a 30gb harddrive. Is this enough for some edited videos? I want them to be full, or almost full quality, but like I said before, they will be short and unprofessional. Is the harddrive upgradeable later? Or maybe I could get an external harddrive? How about an external DVD burner? Or maybe an aftermarket internal Superdrive, hopefully slot loading? Thanks!
