Portable Edius system for Same Day Edits?

I am a MAC FCP editor looking to buy a PC based Edius editing solution for producing same day edits at weddings. What are the basics that I need in terms of software and hardware?

It depends

What camera are you using?

SD or HD?

Tape based or flash memory?

I would look at a small suitcase system. I'd get a fast i7 quad core system with at least 6gb ram. Plop in a Firecoder Blu card and you get faster than RT conversion of AVCHD and BluRay. You don't need a HDSpark or Storm, unless for the SDE you planned on playing from the timeline out through HDMI which I wouldn't recommend.
You can do it with a laptop, but I built my own small portable box which can accomidate the Firecoder card.

I'd grab this barebone mini system Newegg.com - Shuttle SX58H7 Intel X58 4 x 240Pin Barebone - Barebone Systems
Then add in the i7 920 ram and hdd and you're rolling.

SDE gurus Trisha and Mark Von Lanken posted this about their new smokin' laptop.
Great laptop for AVCHD encoding - Grass Valley Desktop Solutions Forums
It's a bargain too.
