    Does the Air have enough performance to run these programs?

    I've been running Finalcut Express and it runs like a dream, no delays, just really snappy - and my Air doesn't get too hot and I've never had a core shutdown.

    Air conundrum

    Hi Aussie in rome. I am an aussie temporarily in London and I have just replaced my macbook pro which was stolen from my hotel room in Thailand, with an Air. It was a hasty move with not much thought after being in Egypt for 3 weeks with no computer to consume the vast amount of pictures and video footage generated!! Now with all this to organise (and my five year old travelling companion champing at my heals) I realise I have no fire wire port! Dah, minor over sight!! I was hoping to use my time in Thailand on my way back to Oz to get creative with imovie rather then return with all the raw imagery. I have a class of Prep 5 year olds expecting it!!!! I am sure I am missing the bleeding obvious but please if you could give me a quick solution on how to get the video footage from my camera onto this little wonder I would be grateful. I have the external disk drive. Do I just get it onto disk at a shop somewhere then use that to import what I want? Any advice would be hugely appreciated as coherent thought is slim on the ground at my end. Ciao for now
