I and your jerky playback beg to differ.

My old 2.16GHZ MacBook Pro /can/ natively edit GoPro, H264, and HDV footage... but it's a painful, painful process. Where the hardware fails, the workflow has to make up. Editing multiple codecs extensively on the same timeline is simply a recipe for spinning beachballs.

Transcode all your footage (via Clipwrap, Compressor, MPEG Streamclip, or whatever) to ProRes (LT is fine for AVCHD and GoPro) and see how much smoother things go.
