Which Mac to purchase?

I'm looking to purchase a Macbook Pro to edit HDV video, mainly home movies, and as a desktop replacement. Which of these would you chose if the price was the same and they're both new? Thanks for the help!
17" HiRes, 2.4GHz, 7200RPM, 160GB, 4GB, 10.5 Leopard, iLife '08
or
17" HiRes, 2.4GHz, 4200RPM, 250GB, 4GB, 10.4 Tiger, iLife '06 (w/Leopard Disk)

I would go for the first one...
17" HiRes, 2.4GHz, 7200RPM, 160GB, 4GB, 10.5 Leopard, iLife '08
The iLife 08 might suit your video editing with the few extra new features? Higher RPM, but lower HD - you can always hook up an external HD if you need more HD space, and with the launch of Apples Time Capsule, it's only a matter of time where you will be able to get wireless HD's so I think in the future you'll not be looking for a Laptop or PC with the biggest HD capacity! only my opinion...
