I am a PC user looking into buying one of the new macbooks, but like everyone else am disappointed in the fact that they lack firewire. I would like to use iMovie to edit videos recorded on my minidv camcorder, but I'm not sure how this will work without a firewire port on the macbook. Firewire is the only way my camcorder will transfer video, the USB works only for transferring still pictures. If I were to capture the video using my PC, and save it to an external USB hard drive, would I then be able to open it in iMovie? Not really looking forward to having to add that extra step, but I really like the new macbooks and don't think I can afford the MBP (besides the fact that I don't really need any of the features other than firewire). Thanks!
