Since I do not do much video editing, I cannot say for sure. At one point MACs were the 'de facto' for graphics applications but PCs have come a long way, and I think at this point in time, either will do. Obviously, the more powerful the system the better, and a very large hard drive would be needed depending on the amount of editing you plan on doing.

WinXP has a free video editor called Movie Maker 2. I have never used it so cannot say how good it is but if you're only doing video editing for fun or hobby, this will get you started.

If you plan on doing this seriously or for a business, there are other full blown packages like Adobe's Premiere Pro which sells for about $699 or Adobe's Video Collection (which includes Premiere Pro and other video editing tools) which sells for $799 (Standard Edition). The is a 30 try out download here.

Adobe also offers tutorials and free template downloads through their Expert Center to get you started

These are some of the video editing programs that come to mind but there are many others out there, it just depends on what you intend to do with it and your level of expertise in this field.

Good luck!

I have tried a little of movie maker 2 in xp and it was ok for making little home videos ect., and like admin says it will do to get you started as its just for fun really and beginners but give it a try if you have xp as it will give you a feel for it before you go spending alot of cash.
