    I have a
    Processor 2.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    Memory 4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    Graphics NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT 128 MB

    I have read that I can upgrade it to a higher 6gb of ram but will that matter? Thanks in advance

    Well check out www.crucial.com and use the system scanner. That should tell you what the MAX RAM is and what you have currently.

    As for gopro what are the recommended specs? It should be on the site or box.

    It says 256MB video RAM so I would so no.

    http://gopro.com/support/faq-hd-hero/#system-requirements-vary-for-computer

    What are the minimum system requirements to be able to handle full 1080p or 720 60fps video files?

    For Windows-based computers, we require:
    Windows Vista or later
    3.2 GHz Pentium 4 or faster
    Direct X 9.0c or Later
    At least 2 GB of system RAM
    Video card with at least 256MB of RAM

    For Mac OS-based computers, we require:
    Mac OS X v10.4.11 or later
    2.0 GHz Intel Core Duo or faster
    At least 2 GB of system RAM
    Video card with at least 256MB of RAM

    It probably *can* handle it, it will probably just be choppy/laggy in playback/processing.

    Can you download the demo and just try it? Just to see if it works?

    it depends what are you going to do?
    and what are your filming settings?


    my mac
    2.2 quad core late 2011 15 inch mbpro
    512 mb video ram
    8gb ram
    500 gb hdd

    you don't need to use mpeg stream clip, final cut x will convert the files for you.
