best system?

For a serious amature, what system would you recommend? I have used my win ME/pinnacle studio 8 system with frustrating results. I have a few projects coming up, and it's time for a new system. Apple or Win? If you could start over, what would you buy? I'm not talking dream system - money no object. Maybe $2500 or so.
Thanks,
Bill Greenberg

First, Win ME has always been frustrating for video editing. Microsoft loaded it up with multimedia features and automatic updates that when combined, made getting a system stable very difficult and almost impossible to keep it stable if you did.

Check out the system we built for about $1,00 in our DIY article http://www.videoguys.com/DIY.html

Then take a look at our Studio to Liquid Edition upgrade $399.95 or Vegas 5 $499.95 or the Pyor Professional w/ Premiere Pro $499.95

You'll find that for about $1,500 you'll have a very good digital video editing solution.

So, I gather from your recommendations that there's no longer an advantage to an Apple machine in stability or features? I'm excited about having an extra $1000 bucks to spend.
Thanks,

I have found Windows XP to be extremely stable and great for NLE. The MAC is a great platform and OS X is stable and great for NLE.

But if you only have $2500 to spend, you will get more bang for your buck with a PC.
