    I've been looking at getting a MacBook from a few years ago as a notebook, and was wondering how well they do FCP7. This is just a secondary/portable computer for me, as my main computer is the October 2012 Mac mini, which, while not a power house, is leaps and bounds better then a 2009 macbook, I just want to be able to put something together on the road with relative ease.

    In comparison to you mac mini, it would have really long rendering times.

    I wouldn't really expect much, but it can get the job done if you at least bump the ram to 8GB
