Importing HDV video

I have tried to import HDV video with my powerbook but cannot do so without distorted sound. Same thing happens with with my Mac book. I will buy a new MacBook Pro but was wondering if it imports HDV without distorted sound

A Macbook Pro, on the other hand, should handle it well. Here's a thought: If you take your camera in to an Apple store, I'm pretty sure they wouldn't mind you connecting it to a Macbook Pro, importing a short length of footage, then testing it.
I was sure I had forgotten something - that's definitely a good suggestion. I've heard that Apple Stores are usually OK with that kind of request
