Sorry for the title- On to the question! Right now I edit on a PC. Premiere Pro, and After Effects Mainly. I want to get into mac editing , but at the same time I NEED a jump in performance. I want to edit HD video - mainly 720p from my JVC HD1 unit. Currently I'm using (yes this is an older pc) AMD athlon 2400+ Barton, 1 gig of pc2700 ram, and a 128mb agp video card. Do any of the new intel macs- mainly the macbook pro offer a good jump in speed with Final Cut Studio- And also, I plan to use apple boot camp so that I can run windows and have access to adobe after effects, which I'm sure runs better on windows, then under emulation for mac as of right now. So will I see good boosts in speed there?
