    I'm running:
    Mac Book Pro-2.2Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo-2 GB, DDR2 SDRAM, GeForce 8699M GT.

    My question is whether or not this laptop (being less than a year old) can handle Adobe After Effects sufficiently. I understand that the render time will not be perfect..but for a 15-30 second video effect, will it run smoothly without having it over heat?

    Also, has anyone used Apple Shake? ( If so...comments please. :D

    runs fine on my 2.16 core duo.

    gets a little hot (80C) but then again mine was the hottest gen mbp so yours should run cooler than that. and 80C is tolerable for me *shrug*

    smooth as it gets, no choppiness if thats what you're expecting.
