imovie hd (last version on an imac g5) worked with the old mac for me but was wayy too slow. I ultimately had to upgrade my computer and software to get it to play nice.
In fact every serious camera upgrade we’ve ever made involved buying or upgrading the computers at the same time…. from 6 mp d-slrs and the emac g4 to the 10 mp d-slrs and dv+hdv video on an imac g5 to avchd and 14 mp d-slrs and intel macs….
so my advice to you is to look for an intel mac even the newest mid level mac mini. trust me it will solve all the headaches at once and leave you with room to upgrade to the new Final cut pro. as always, add as much ram as you can…
