Well I realize that no one would know if the new imac would be good for this, but I guess what I'm asking is speculation based on the performance of imacs for video editing that are out today. I'm not a pro video editor or anything (yet, maybe someday), but I would like a system good for video editing, currently I'm making short films and are not sure if the imac is right for me. I've never used a mac in my life, in fact, the switch scares me as I'm so used to PC's, and have, in the past, made fun of mac users for their incompatability issues, high prices, and left click only mice. I don't know if the OS will be easy to learn and have the same functionality as Windows. Anyways, I would appreciate some input on what I should buy for what I need.
