New 24 inch iMAC is great for Final Cut Pro editors

Is the new Apple 24 inch iMAC, the ultimate computer for Final Cut Pro, or Avid Xpress non-linear editing?

If you haven't heard the news yet, you need to check out the latest iMAC now being offered by Apple Computer. Apple now offers a 24 inch iMAC, with a full HD capable LCD display. It's native digital resolution is 1900 x 1200.

In the new 24 inch model, Apple has beefed up the size of the Display, and the graphics card that comes built in. The 24-inch model includes the NVidia GeForce 7300 GT graphics processor with 128MB of GDDR3 SDRAM using PCI Express. Or you can get the optional NVidia GeForce 7600 GT graphics processor with 256MB of GDDR3 SDRAM using PCI Express.

The new Nvidia graphics card(s) also give Avid users new hope that the graphics card installed in the new 24 inch iMAC will work correctly when using the iMAC with Windows XP.

Most importantly, Apple has added firewire 800 support on the back of the 24 inch iMAC. This is a huge addition to the video editing professional. This now allows Final Cut Pro users to connect external firewire 800 drives to their iMAC, which will allow for the added bandwidth needed for editing hi-def video.

Although we do not have one to test, we don't see how you can go wrong with Apple's top-of-the line iMAC.
