    i was wondering if a mac mini could handle the final cut suite/final cut studio. now just in hard drive space but will it be able to handle HD video editing encoding, rendering and everything else a pro. video editor would do.
    Any help would be welcomed.

    Mine handles FCE 4.x fine. But IMO, definitely should use an external scratch drive, preferably FW. It works well enough for my needs w/ 4GB of Ram.

    If you're doing professional work with Final Cut Studio, I'm sure many will say you need a better machine. I'm honestly not entirely sure how much FCS relies on GPU processing power.
