I am biased towards Linux, but would still recommend getting a Mac for iMovie.  Even a used Mac from the last four years, if you're on a budget, is going to be a frustration-eliminating experience.  Simple things, like being able to import the video (without re-encoding) directly off the camera to a thumbnailed event timeline makes a huge difference in usability.  
I was actually recommending Lightworks, which not only has a Linux
version for a while now, but feels similar to iMovie/Final Cut Pro.
Blender's not exactly for the faint of heart.
