    I am just going to go to the ground basic questions that i need answered about Final Cut Studio 2 and the New Mac Mini, 4gig ram, 2.53ghz.

    -Will the Mac Mini render basic effects in real time such as Cross Dissolve, Titles, 3 way Color corrector, ext. ?

    -Can I playback 1080i video in the timeline in realtime with basic effects?

    -Will it take over 1 hour to render 3 minutes of HDV Video?

    -Is this mac suitable for making 10 minute 1080i videos in FCP?

    I do all this on my June '09 2.26Ghz MacBook Pro which is the same thing as a Mini, so yeah. It doesn't take an hour to render HD video from my Canon HG20 (which uses AVCHD) so HDV won't either. It will be a little slower than an equivalent iMac mainly because of the Mini's CPU being a mobile processor with less cache, but it is certainly usable.
