    I brought my first Apple MacBook 2.0 gig with 512mb of ram a couple of months ago. I decided to give my PC laptop to my boy and learn Mac. I want to run Final Cut Pro Universal version on my MacBook, but Apple says it requires the MacBook Pro to run and I should upgrade because it has the graphic card to run FCP, is that true??

    You might want to get some more RAM.

    The only problem is the integrated video. If I remember correctly FCP has a pretty graphic intensive user interface. Much like Aperture I think.

    With 2GBs of RAM. It should work well for you. Not like my Mac Pro. But well. :D

    You do need a minimum of 1gb of ram to run that. However the lack of a video card will not even allow you to install FCP or Aperture. It will actually look at those things before hand and allow or not allow you to install.

    It should allow you to install Final Cut Pro, but not Motion or Aperture I think ...
