Thanks Shane.

You gotta wonder, what is Apple thinking by sending out every Mac laptop iMovie, while only one model of laptop is properly outfitted for capturing video? Well, we know what they're thinking. Dollar signs.

This is really troublesome. The 17" is just too big and expensive. They never made a 15" Unibody with both an Expresscard and an anti-glare screen.

What problems arise from capturing video to your internal drive?

Would it be such a big deal if I moved the footage to an external drive once it was captured?

I'm not so crazy about the idea of daisy chaining. It just seems like you could exceed the of bandwidth of the FW bus pretty easily.

I'm fairly certain that the moment a 13" MacBook Pro is available with an anti-glare screen option, that I will buy right then and there. I need to make this work. Thanks!
