What you get depends on how much time you need to process your video. A Mac Pro (I have a Mac Pro w/quad processors) can take a one hour movie (after I have done all the editing) less than 2 hours to render, compress, and burn on a DVD.
Now, my wife just bought a MacBook with the 2.5 ghertz Intel processor. It is very fast. You’ll need an external harddrive to store any unnecessary files so that the internal drive is available for processing. It cost @ $1,200. And it can process a movie in around 2 hours. Make sure if you get any new Mac, that you then download for free iMovie 6 which is a better movie editing software than the current iMovie. the MacBook Pro laptop costs $800 more but I don’t think you get that much more for the money.
