    I am going to make the switch to a mac soon (probably when the macbook pros are updated). I am also getting into video editing/encoding/making. What hardware specs play the biggest role in video encoding speed?

    RAM also plays a major roll, especially with larger videos and HD video.

    Most C2D processors will speed it up alot, especially with hyper threading.
