Mac switch question. No platform debate needed.

OK, I am 90% sure I am jumping over to the Mac. I am a lifetime PC guy so the decision is difficult. Budget-wise, I can really only afford the “regular” Mac with an upgrade to 4GB of RAM. This is a 2.0GHz machine. The Mac Book Pro offers the 2.66 or 2.4GHz.
Two questions:

1. Will the "regular" Mac work ok for editing photos and video or will I be disappointed?

2. Is Aperture 2 worth the money or should I look at Lightroom? I think Lightroom is significantly higher so I am leaning towards Aperture.
Thanks.
Joe
