From what I've read, it sounds like the Mac Mini is capable of handling some HD editing. To give perspective, I'm editing standard def on a dual g4 1ghz with 1 gig of ram. I'm thinking that maybe I can use a Mac Mini and hold off on a bigger mac pro purchase for about a year...and that if I move into consumer High def, the mini will have the capability of holding me over (using FCE) for at least a little bit. Any input? Thank you!
