I have a HUGE video collection (well over 200+ vhs tapes) that I want to get on dvd's. Currently I have a 1.25ghz mac mini with the 40gb HD which is decent for small jobs, but with so many to go through, I need to cut down the process time as much as possible and it's just not going to be able to cut it. As a result, I am looking for something faster that will allow me to speed up the conversion process and wanted to solicit your suggestions. The main use would be standard video elements (like eyetv, imoviehd, idvd, premiere, etc). I already have a pc that I use everyday so it doesn't need to be a desktop unit (a laptop would be preferred as it would allow me to hook it up inches away compared to dragging cords across the room), but I also have another great PC laptop that I use everyday so this machine would basically be exclusively used for video editing. The budget is not a problem as I would be able to pick up whatever was necessary, but I just have to know that it was definitely worth the cost (ie, I'm not going to spend $1500 just to cut 10 seconds off conversion time). I am not real familiar on mac hardware specs and what not so hopefully you can offer your suggestions on what you think the best route to take would be. THanks!
