I am buying the low end model of the MBP on the release of leopard. Just a question i believe the graphics card or whatever is only 128mb, how will that go with HD video? isn't the recommended amount for HD 256? if anyone has handled anything with HD video on the low end MBP, could you tell me how it went please! that would be good. Thanks

Editing using final cut studio and after effects. I don't own a HD camera but the film school i start next year uses HD cameras and im worried that if i have to take a project home to finish will the MBP find it unbearable to manage?

well i edited/rendered HD video on my CD x1600 (256mb) with both imovie and FCP and it was a gem. performed really really good. its not so much the gpu, but more on the CPU, which is pretty much the most powerful cpu u can get in a lappy.
