iMac is not a laptop. Maybe you mean iBook or powerbook?

When you say "film" do you mean 35 mm film? Or are you talking
about video recorded with a video camera? If so, what format
(if you don't know, what camera)?

There are very powerful laptops on both sides. "Better" is such
a subjective term. It completely depends on what you are exactly
doing with the system, what you are comfortable working with
(what works for YOU!) and with what other systems/clients etc.
you need to work with.

I edit DV footage (video) on a DELL Inspiron 9100 laptop (very
powerful laptop which is a "PC") with Sony Vegas 5.0 and it
works like a charm.

There are several good laptops in different price ranges that can edit video well.

It really comes down to how much you want to spend and what are the important features.

For me I didn't want a laptop with shared video memory. I wanted at least 1.00Gig of RAM installed, built in firewire, Wi-Fi, and I wanted the largest HDD I could get without spending more than $2100.

I suggest that you take a similar approach define your budget and needs and search the laptops that fit
