So I just finished using iMovie & iDVD to work something up for the people back in the DC office to watch at the staff meeting tomorrow. I am stepping up from an iBook G4 that wasn't too too juiced....but, all I can say is WOW. The difference was amazing. Granted, it wasn't Avid - but the differences in the times it took to do things like pulling in the clips, cutting, pasteing, arranging, et al was amazing. Although, it felt like the process of burning the final product longer.
For the others that are waiting - I have a question: How are you planning to transfer files? I avoided the apple app that comes with OS X, because we have a single user account that both of us share on the iBook and i didn't want to migrate the Mail files (hers) Calendar (hers), but would like to get the address book, play lists and photo albums. I Have already moved the music and my work stuff using an external drive, but would like to selectively pull some of that stuff. Suggestions?
