I have to second the Mac suggestion. Having just bought a Mac
coming from a PC/Windows desktop I had no idea how good an
environment it was for media processing, but I have to say
it is the best for video/still image editing and if iMovie
or iPhoto don't cut it then Aperature or Final Cut would
get the job done for a reasonable price (compared to say
Photoshop and Premiere).
