iMovie

iMovie imports video footage to the Mac using either the FireWire interface on most MiniDV format digital video cameras or the computer's USB port. It can also import video and photo files from a hard drive. From there, the user can edit the photos and video clips and add titles, themes, music, and effects, including basic color correction and video enhancement tools and transitions such as fades and slides.

The following Systems meet the system requirements set by iMovie's developers. There are no performance standards defining how well a recommended system should perform (some developpers overestimate them, others can be a bit optimistic), but I would expect those systems to handle anything easily but the most painstakingly complex tasks.

Wonder why you get better systems than requested?

That's because TekAdvisor limits results based on a maximum price rather than a maximum performance. For instance: If 3-stars or even 5-stars systems are available in the same price range as 1-star options, I'm pretty sure you should consider the better-performing options as well.

The results above are the 9 systems offering the best bang-for-the-buck among the cheapest catalogued systems capable of running iMovie at the specified level of performance or better.
