    Will FCP X run half way descent on a mini with 8GB ram? Since there is a free trial, downloading it now for a test drive.

    It will run half way decent, it looks like your biggest bottleneck will be the GPU hope you aren't running that big of a screen!

    It'll work okay, you might have a hard time getting smooth playback from HD 1080 video though.

    Thanks. Just want to see if this would work while I do the trial of FCP X. Built a pc to move over to another platform but might as well give FCP X a fair chance to see if its worth staying with apple. Thanks again.
