Are there any mac users here? I'm planning to upgrade my pc and editing software by the end of this year to be ready for hd material. I know it's a bit early but having seen a preview of final cut studio 2 which is almost half cheaper then adobe production suite, (Ok adobe does have more to offer like photoshop but I am more interested in an editing suite which can handle a variety of hd formats.) I got realy interested.
Only thing is mac prizes, an Imac which is hardly upgradable comes with a nice screen but is actually more a big overpriced notebook.
The macpros are then again state of the art but at a 2500euro starting price not really cheap.
How is final cut studio handling on a "simple" 2gig, 17inch screen or 2,16 gig, 20inch screen imac, anyone using it here combined with hd material?
Does editing or capturing cause problems on an external harddrive?
