My sister in-law needed a new machine and prefers Macs but is not
technically literate so I got her to buy a Macbook (core duo) and have
been doing the admin getting it setup with Internet access and loading
I haven't used a Mac for literally 20 years but basically it's pretty
intuitive (with the only real gotcha being closing vs hiding apps). I
think KDE is more MacOS.X like than Gnome but either way it's not hard
to pick up.
I've seen an old MacMini G4 easily cut through video work and I would
assume that ANY of the new MacIntel Core (1 or 2) Duo boxes (at 5 x
faster) would eat HD video without any worries.
