    I have been a pc user my whole life and am researching to get a mac because I have used the imove at my friend's imac and it was NIZzzzze!!!

    Anyways, I would like to get the base model of the mac mini (probably upgrading the ram to 4gb) along with Final Cut Express 4. Does the mac mini have enough juice to run Final Cut Express 4? Anyone has any pointers in terms of rendering with Final Cut Express 4?

    Any help appreciated.

    the mac mini should be fine with FCE 4 but the render and export times will be a little slow. My current imac the white one will handle it but it takes about 30 min to export a 5min movie. Luckily my new iMac is supposed to be here on monday and I'm so excited.

    P.S. Welcome to the mac way of life.
