I have used this MacBook to capture video, and it works very well. It's much faster than my previous MacBook, although that one also worked well. I have not done any editing and burning to DVD with this latest model, but I had no problems with my 8-year-old MacBook, so I assume this one will work even better. To this point, I've just captured video from my DVR for archive purposes. One of these days I'll get around to making DVDs, but I have to buy the burner first.
