I want to get into video e


I want to get into video editing and I am buying a new macbook pro and the ADVC110 converter to transfer VHS tapes to my computer and then edit them. I have a lot of questions, but mainly, should I buy an external hard drive? Quality is very important to me.

The macbook pro comes with a 5400 rpm drive. How much would that limit me? Would it be worth it to buy something like a Western Digital mybook external drive, with firewire 400/800 connections? I have been looking at 7200rpm external drives and a lot of them seem to have their share of problems. (getting an internal 7200rpm drive in the macbook pro is not an option)

Any information is welcomed.
