Matt, I don't quite understand your question. You say you are just  
wanting to put together a two minute short? If this is only a two  
minute video, your 30 gig HD will be fine - why do you need an  
external Hard drive? Each gig will hold about 6-7 minutes of video so  
you have heaps on your laptop. Have you not got iMovie on your  
laptop? Unless you are doing something special, it will be fine and  
having a 2 year old machine is no problem. You can do this is on much  
older than this. If you need help with iMovie, I have some tutorials  
I use in schools at;


Sorry, there is a lot of educational stuff there but click on the  
iMovie Notes button and download the tutorials. Hope fully this is  
what you want. They are not the latest version - sorry, need to find  
that precious commodity called time to update them but hope they are  
useful. You can find heaps of other tutorials out there on the web  
with a little searching.
