Pardon me for being a bit of a newbie in the forum, I only occasionally get to use a co-workers iMac but I am planning on getting my own soon! Seriously considering a mini... although a little cautious now as I just realized that it doesn't have an optical drive. I guess thats ok, I just hadn't yet taken that into consideration. We have FC Studio 2 edition. I think its 6 dvd disks to install it. How do you handle installing FC on this thing? Get a usb optical drive? Then once its on there, how well does Final Cut run on the mini?
