Alright, as I sit here, wringing by hands and rubbing my head, I just can't figure out which desktop to purchase for my next project. I am going to be putting together a series of DVD's for my Students and others. ( American Kenpo Karate - Home instruction course ). I am putting together everything I need to start. What I need now is a COMPUTER!!!! Which one is best for video editing and for the task at hand...Sony, iMac, HP, Dell, etc. I have been on every review site, every manufacture's site, blah, blah, blah...Come on folks, price range I need to be within is no more than $1800....Please give me your best ideas.
