Mac comes with Imovie, which is preety good, but if your a pro, and will be doing more, final cut pro is the next step...Which can be bought for a really cheap price of 1000 ahahah...My dad has it on his g5, its a great program, if your into seriouse editing, but imovie will get the job done.

I run windows and mac on my computer, and i think, compared to windows movie maker, imovie is quite a bit better. If you can though, try to get a copy of Final Cut studio, its amazing. Also, you could run bootcamp of parallels to get to windows movie maker if you need it.

I am wandering the same thing.....My dad is planning on buying an apple computer.

http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPL...LOxGmYK/2.?p=0

Does anyone know if this would be a good computer to edit? We would need to transfer DVD's to the computer. What else would be needed besides the computer to transfer over?

Should we buy a program such as Imovie sepererate that what may be available already? I would like to cuts, fades, have music overlayed, and some features that make the editing it look professional.....
