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). -Ross ______________________________________________________________________ This e-mail, and any attachments thereto, is intended only for use by the addressee(s) named herein and may contain legally privileged and/or confidential information.
