They're Vista-compatible, but not suggested due to the processing requirements of doing CineForm at the highest-quality compression settings (can be quite a CPU resource consumer when combined with running the interface).

We suggest the fastest Merom you can get your hands on, and either the Marvell or the Intel-based NIC's (with Intel being ideal).

The Sony doesn't have gig-e, so it's not even in the running.

Not sure why the big push for the Macbook when there are so many options out there. I'd rather stick with the Adobe workflow which is far better integrated then anything else.

I suggest looking at something like this:

You can customize it to the 2.33GHz if you'd like. If that doesn't fit your bill there are many others options out there. I would browse around Sager's sight to see all they offer.

The main reason I was looking at this camera was because of the Adobe/Premiere workflow but for some reason it seems like ther trying to push the Mac end of things. What gives?

Steve, When I was at the Abel Cine Tech demo of the SI-2k on Friday, Steve Nordhauser said that SI was going to strongly try to limit the number of platforms they officially support. Their applications right now are PC based, written in Microsoft C++, and the only -officially- recommended platform is the Dell M90.

Given the Mini properties, a tablet PC would have all the sense if and when the hardware will be available. More than the traditional notebook/keyboard setup. Because it is not so mini nor the best portable hardware setup.
