    do you rly want to know?
    chances are, it is not going to stutter. the i7/i5 is 50% faster than the previous gen top core 2 duo processor.

    i've worked in FCP 7 with 1080p footage, and 720p footage on my C2D 2.8 GHz MBP, with little to no issue. So I would imagine a i5 or i7 would have NO ISSUE. Though I won't be getting the 5400 rpm HDD when I get my next MBP in a few years.

    I can tell you FCP 6 doesn't miss a beat on my computer (see sig). I ONLY use 1080 HD footage
