How is AVCHD editing on Final Cut Studio 2 compared to HDV?

I am in the process of buying a new camcorder.

Favorite is the Canon HV30, but I am considering AVCHD.

I just heard that AVCHD is tough to edit... Is this true?

I have a 24" iMac Core 2 Duo with 3 Gb RAM, and I wonder if that would be enough horsepower to edit AVCHD.

Do you create an intermediate codec at import? And does HDV the same? Or does it work differently in both formats?

I have so far only worked in SD...

Thanks!


PS: I of course meant editing on Final Cut Pro (as being part of the suite. Can't edit the title of the thread, though)
