I'm pleased to say the new Macbook Pro Retina and non-Retina models can actually handle Canon's H.264 right out of the camera! A friend of mine works at a Mac store and he let me import a native Canon HD file (530 mb) into iMovie. I could scrub around the footage and play it back without any noticeable hiccups or stuttering. I was impressed, because Canon's H.264 definitely chokes up my current Macbook Pro 2.4 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo with 6 GBs of RAM.

Just thought others might like to know, since I was curious about this myself.

Thanks. I was wondering if it was worth buying for video work.
