everything on the desktop is better then on the imac. the cpu is the biggest factor with video editing, the desktop cpu would destroy the imac cpu
heres benchmarks in Premiere Pro CS3 HDTV
Intel Core i7 920 is 3rd from top (PC)
Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 (2.66ghz) is near the bottom (imac)
I know this has been done before but I want to know which computer I should get.
I want to use the computer for video editing, creation, and photoshop.
I need to update all my adobe products to CS4 so either way I have to buy new software.
Here are the two computers I am looking at
2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor
4GB (2x2GB) of 1066MHz DDR3 memory
640GB 7200-rpm SATA hard drive
NVIDIA GeForce 9400M with 256MB GDDR3 memory
