    It will be fine. I would suggest getting the 2.5,or better yet get the 2.66 CPU model.They both come with 4 gigs of ram,and can now be expanded to 8 gigs if you buy two 4 gig sticks of ram...which can get a tad pricey at about $200-$220 a stick,but you can do that one stick at a time if you even wanted to go that route.

    Question? Does memory play that big of a role in editing? I know the CPU does,but I'm not sure on the memory.:confused:

    Edit: One thing I did want to add is I suggested the 2.66 CPU,but wow that thing gets pricey,and at that point you are getting into iMac territory price wise.
