mac mini

do you guys/gals think a mac mini would have enough "horse power" to edit HDV footage from the JVC?

maybe someone is editing out there this way now, love to hear some feed back.

Jon, I have a PowerBook G4 1.67 with 1.5GB Ram and it barely makes it. It's OK for basic editing but adding filters in FCP takes a very long time to render. If I could I would buy a dual processor or a CoreDuo-based machine.

Of course all depends on the type of work you plan on doing but a Mini will probably struggle handling any HD material. Be sure to get plenty of RAM, 1.5GB or more.
