Well im going to be making my used macbook pro purchase this week and I was wondering if a Macbook Pro with these specs is good enough to edit hd videos in Final Cut pro and iMovie 09? with filters and stuff? Like would this be a bad choice? I have a good deal on it. Heres the Specs: 2.16GHz Intel Core Duo 17-inch Widescreen Display 2.0GB RAM 120GB Hard Drive DVD-RW/CD-RW SuperDrive X1600 video card (256MB) 1680x1050 resolution Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR Airport Extreme Card Built-in iSight Remote control NOT included 3- USB 2.0 ports 2- FireWire ports (400 & 800) Ethernet port Its only a Intel Core Duo which i found from research can only be upgraded to 2Gigs of Ram? The camera im editing with is the Panasonic HVX200 Thanks guys.
