computer too slow,
This review is from: Flip MinoHD Video Camera - Black, 4 GB, 1 Hour (1st Generation) OLD MODEL (Electronics)
First there was no indication in the requirements that my computer configuration would not be adequate . I have a fairly modern and pretty fast G5 Mac and it was not powerful enough to run smooth playback of this HD Camcorder. I only found this out by contacting tec support at FlipVideo. The company I bought it from was very understanding and I was able to return the machine for a full refund. Thanks for that. I felt the screen was too small and there is a lot of shake at this high resolution. The camera did work fine on my Sony HD TV (smooth playback) but that is just an upscaled composite input not true HD. I also found the led buttons on the back too bright, distracting. The software is quite good for organizing shots and archiving material but beware of moving anything to a place of your own. If you loose the link the computer can not play back your clip. You have to move the clip back to it's original position.

Sorry, but an iMac G5 is neither fairly modern, nor pretty fast. They stopped making those at the end of 2005. You're one of those unlucky customers who bought an iMac just before they switched to Intel. Me too!
