I'm having a tough time decided on a machine that best fits my needs. It really doesn't seem like a good time to buy any mac. Here are my very specific needs. I need a computer to use for video editing. Every summer I work for an organization that organizes camps for middle and high school students. I'm in charge of the live production, shooting and editing for each week long camp. Right now I'm using a 2 GHz macbook as my only computer. I have to have a laptop to take back and forth to work and school. The macbook cannot run FCS so I need a new computer for the summer. My first camp starts June 17th but I'm planning on leaving a week early to go backpacking (the camp's in colorado) so I will likely purchase just before I leave. I fly to these camps so I have to be able to carry the machine on a place. These are the two things I'm considering. 1. 20'' imac w/ 256mg graphic and maxed out ram. 2. 15'' MacBook Pro. I've seen soft cases built for the imacs designed specifically to enable them to be easily carried onto a plane. The imac is significantly less expensive as well. To get the macbook pro, I would have to sell my macbook in order to afford it. It doesn't seem like a good time to buy an imac or a macbook pro so i'm feeling stuck. any advice based on my needs?
