    Looks like Apple will be replacing my MBP (finally:rolleyes: ), and I have decided to get a MB and 20" iMac in its place.

    While the iMac will be my Pro machine, I am wondering just how hard I can push a MacBook with Pro Apps.

    I would love to be able to run Motion and shake (though slowly) and I know FCP will run, so yeah... :eek:

    The MB will have 1.5 GBytes of RAM.

    only one way to find out!...the MB's didn't have heat issues right?..whatever burn it up and tell us the results!

    Hopefully it wont come to that, the reason they're replacing my MBP is heat issues!!

    Yeah, my hopes aren't high for motion. I mostly am worried abotu FCP (or even FCE) and DVD-SP. Perhaps LiveTiype as well...

    i think almost everything will run fine, i push mine pretty far, always rendering something, something in final cut occasionaly and a ton of student version of other 3d apps, the all run fine although slowly.

    Is FCP/E slow? I used to edit on a 1Ghz eMac, so I know what slow is. ;) :D
