Anyone cutting on a macbook (standard, not pro)
Getting one for work and though it try editing some HDV footage on it. Should I bother? Any comments would be appreciated.

I also have cut HDV footage on my Mac Book (not pro) when I'm away from my office without problems. I use an externally powered firewire drive for capture and storage to help lighten the load on the macpro.

Yeah I have a low end MacBook 13" with FCE from an old job and it can handle HDV, just slowly. I wouldn't try and cut a major motion picture on it, but for short web videos and stuff like that it's fine, just very slow.

surprisingly enough, load those puppies up with ram, thrown on a external firewire drive and they are awesome little machines. make it better and tack on a 24" lcd to it and you're even better! my wife has the og black one and i've done tons of stuff on it, from after effects, dvd sp, final cut, flash.. it can def handle it.
