I'm currently running Final Cut Express HD on an iBook G4. Although it runs ok, it's a bit slow, and I'm finding that as the laptop gets older, I'm running out of new software I can run (an example being Aperture 2, which won't run on anything pre-G5), so I'm looking to update my computer.
As much as I would love a shiny new MacBook Pro, I really can't afford it, and so it looks like I'm going to be going for the bog standard MacBook. I read <a href="http://www.tuaw.com/2006/05/21/apple-kb-article-final-cut-studio-not-supported-on-macbook/">here</a> that Final Cut Studio isn't supported on a MacBook. Does anybody know how badly it runs? I know I'm only running Express at the moment, but I might be upgrading in future, and don't want to do it then find out I can't run the software.
Long and short of it is, will I be ok with a MacBook (and it's slightly shoddy graphics card), or should I save up for the next year or so and get a Pro?
