|The Apple Macintosh is the best platform for video editing — Final Cut Pro 5 is quite phenomenal. On the other hand, professional also use Adobe Premiere Pro with Microsoft Windows.|
I've just been on the Apple Store. You can buy an Apple Power Mac G5 Dual 2.7 GHz computer (with a few upgrades: more RAM, bigger hard disk drive etc), an Apple Cinema HD Display (30" flat panel) and Final Cut Pro 5 for just over $7000. That would, quite frankly, be the ultimate video editing system! You would have a huge display coupled with an ultra-fast computer and an award-winning piece of video editing software.
