    ok so i have the regular macbook and i always though you couldnt run final cut studio on it that only final cut express could run. so last night i got a copy of fcs from my stepdad and its runs on my macbook like a champ. i dont no why though?

    Its just going to run slower than a Pro machine would run it, but your macbook probably fulfills the min reqs for FCS.
