I have a Sony HDR-HC3 tape HD video camcorder, and am wanting to do home video editing. I want to have a Mac that is powerful enough to capture HD and edit it quickly with no delays for effects. I currently have a Windows-based IBM Thinkpad T42, which can't capture/play HD video - too slow. I'm considering the MacBook Pro 2-3GB RAM 17" 2.33GHz or the Mac Pro 4GB RAM 2.66 GHz, or waiting for the MacBook Pro Santa Rosa-based. Does anyone have experiencing capturing and editing successfully with the MBP? Thanks for the help in advance - I'm really looking forward to returning to Mac.
