I'm planning on getting Final Cut Pro X soon, but I was worried whether or not my macbook would be able to run it efficiently or not. I have the 2.26 ghz Intel core 2 duo model with 2 gb of ram. The reason I'm worried is because even when I use iMovie, my macbook lags A LOT. Whenever I open iMovie, I can't seem to do anything else, or else it will lag even more. I am worried that with Final Cut, it will lag even more, and that won't work out well for me. Also, the battery seems to drain very, very quickly. I have to charge it at least 3 times a day, even if I haven't been using it all day. It is constantly lagging, and the fan is always on and very loud. I really don't think its going to be able to handle Final Cut, but what do you think? Will my Macbook be able to handle it or is it time for an upgrade?
