    I am a newbie here.
    I am currently putting movies from camcorder to DVD using imovie/idvd.
    My machine is a G4 Quicksilver 867mhz, 1.5gb ram.
    Encoding takes hours.
    What kind of encoding speed increase can I expect if I use a MacPro 2.66ghz quad, 2gb ram?
    Thanks

    Using a 867 MHz G4 to encode is painful.

    Even a Mac mini would run circles around it.

    Huge.

    It has been a while since I have used iDVD but you can expect a massive speed increase.
