    Hi everyone, I've got a little question regarding the Macbook. I'm looking to buy a new 2.4ghz macbook and I'm wondering if I'll be able to run FCP on it. According to what I saw on the Apple site, FCP doesnt support the integrated graphics card on the macbook. Does that mean that it won't run or that it will just be a little slower? I'd also be content running Premiere and I'm sure that will run.

    In terms of speed, for the same clock speed are the MBP and the MB the same?

    I know there are some features differences between the two, most notably the backlit keyboard, multi touch trackpad.. is there anything else major that i will regret not getting a Pro?

    Thanks!

    The pro has a graphics card with it's own memory, so that'd definitely be better for graphic intensive applications. If you're doing a lot of video editing go for a Pro.
