Recommend a AVCHD HD Video Camera

I’m looking for a AVCHD video camera that can record HD video and will play nicely with a MacBook Pro. I’m not a fan of the new iMovie, so I’m open to buying another video editing application if needed. I’m looking to spend no more than $800.

I haven’t tried a lot, so there might be better choices around, but right now I have the Canon HF-10 on loan and I don’t want to return it.

16 GB internal and slot for SDHC. 12x zoom and it’s the size of my hand. It also does HDMI out.
