Mr Biscardi is right, I switched from Macbook Pro (sata drives) to Imac 27 Quad 2.93, 8GB ram, FW800 external plus raid drives and the editing is far more faster with the FW800 drives than with sata on MBP, no need for rendering when applying corrections and effects on two video lines and the rendering is around six times faster, playing back AppleProRes files of around 14MB/s. The drive of the unit writes and reads at 80MB/s, the FW800 raid at 60, the external single FW800 at 40. Definitively much much better that my previous MBP and cheaper, not talking about a screen that lets me see now everythong I need (at 66). So far monitoring on a led TV via HDMI, not the best but thinking to switch to Matrox.
