Considering what they're shipping with their latest generation iMacs,
i'm not surprised -- I mean with OS X and the built in cameras on the
iMacs, they've now got videoconferencing on H.264 on their OS by
default... I believe also that OS X was also one to move all the GUI
processing to the graphics card (similar to how Windows Vista plans to
do the same when/if it comes out, either now, or in it's sucessor).
Do note that current Intel PCs are shipping with single-core 2GHz
processors (low end), single-core 3GHz processors (mid-end) or
dual-core 2.4 GHz processors (high-end).
I could be totally wrong, though.
That all said, IIRC, movie editing is a lot worse, usually -
especially if you're going for something with a nice-looking GUI. You
probably could get by with a bit less, but it'd be unstable and/or
[I hope there's a minimum system listing too. ;]

- Just my two cents
