Hey joe -
i spend my summer on liveaboard boats shooting and editing underwater 
video on an ibook and fcp3
using imovie  with both an internal and external drive i used to see 
lots of dropped frames but using fcp its a very rare thing

and im using a 600mhz ibook with 384 of ram

youll be in heaven with a 1ghz g4 and a gig of ram

just make sure you get the biggest fastest harddrive theyll put in it. 
video just eats up hds
