Yeah it is pretty awesome how much faster computers are now compared to just a little while ago. When I first got into video in 2004, I bought a powermac G5 and had to pay extra for 1gig of ram, which I thought made me hot shit.And I used to take "render walks" when I was done editing. It was a nice way to get a little exercise after sitting on my ass for countless hours.
Haha I remember thinking that if I had a G5 to edit on, and my GL2, I would be set and making awesome stuff. Granted the GL2 isnt/wasn't a bad camera at all for the money, but oh how naive I was.
