    Will I have any problems running Final Cut Express on a 13" MBP because it has no dedicated graphics card? I'm cautious about saying I don't want to do any serious video editing because I don't want to limit myself, but in honest reality I am a complete amateur and going to start with just some home videos and stuff I recorded on vacations. Basically, I just don't want to shell out for Final Cut Express and find out it doesn't even work well enough on my computer. Please help.

    A dedicated GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is not needed for editing as far as I know, but maybe FCE is different, but I also doubt it.

    Thus I assume, FCE will run without problems on your MBP, especially after reading the following:

    It should work, but you might want to consider connecting the laptop to an external display. It will make editing a lot easier: Final Cut on a 13" display is quite crammed, but it's still possible.
