SSD do zero to increase rendering speed. For FCP 7, that's all in the CPUs. For me they are a waste of money right now because of the expense vs. amount of storage you get. They will get cheaper, but right now, much cheaper to go with a SATA RAID.

You say 60fps HD, but you don't say the format you're editing in. Any MacBook Pro, iMac or Mac Pro can handle ProRes 720 or 1080 editing today. Mac Pro is the most flexible.

I would recommend the most Mac Pro you can afford, put in at least 2GB of RAM per core and get yourself a very fast external RAID.
