Can’t go wrong learning FCP and/or Avid. And yes, Macs can be pricey, but they are used by many in the industry. And lets face it, this isn’t a cheap industry. Just as a tip though, you don’t need to get the biggest, baddest, fastest Mac to edit. The more important part is the components you add to your Mac, such as a Kona Card, a RAID, external monitor, etc. It’s those components that allow for smooth editing, not necessarily fast processors. Editors work with uncompressed video on G5s, not because they have fast CPS…they don’t, it’s because of the components they have with their computers.
I have only FCP in my edit bay, but there is nothing wrong with having more than one NLE loaded to your computer.
