yes. to be honest my macbook, (not even the mackbook pro) with 2 gigs of ram does just fine. check out Lacie rugged drives firewire for on the road, and I use (middle of the road really, but have a supplier that sells em cheap) western digital mybook drives. My mackbook takes about one hour and twenty minutes to import a one hour hdv tape, (imports sometimes go at 3/4 speed, not a huge problem for me) runs fce. I often record straight to hd, while simultaniously recording to tape…(when possible).
