If you are new to editing or if you are considering purchasing a new editing machine make sure you check the requirements before you buy. As of right now, Window's Vista and Apple's Leopard are not supported operating systems by Avid. Eventually they will be supported but right now you will need to take an alternate route. If you have no choice and you are buying a new machine you have two distinct options. You can purchase a Windows machine and then buy a copy of Windows XP and install it on your new PC. This will cost you about $200.00 above the price of your new computer but it is the best way to get your Avid up and running. Your second option is to purchase a new MAC Pro and install Windows XP alongside your MAC OS. This is a great option and the route I am about to take myself. There is much more than just the operating system to consider. You need to make sure you have at least 2GB of RAM. Avid states only 1GB for DV and 2 GB for HD but I have found that 2GB is the minimum you should consider for either. This just scratches the surface of requirements; make sure you read through the read me files on Avid's support site and make sure your system meets all the requirements for your editing machine.
