    Hey everyone! I have a 13" MacBook Pro running a Core 2 Duo 2.53GHz processor and 8GB of RAM. It handles everything I throw at it, including pro apps.

    I am debating picking up an external Cinema Display to use when video and photo editing just for some extra real estate. I'm concerned because the MacBook Pro breaks a little sweat when doing Final Cut Pro X work. So, I was wondering what you guys thought about me running Final Cut Pro X on the MacBook Pro while porting to say, a 20" Apple display? Do you think the Pro could handle it?

    In my gut, I think it can handle it but I was just curious as to your opinions based on my machine's specifications :) Thanks guys! You're all awesome
