I moved away from Mac a while ago, but and considering coming back for video editing purposes. I know Final Cut Studio will run on the MBP systems minus one or two programs due to screen resolution. I assume FCP X will run on the current systems as well. I already have a desktop so I don't want an iMac or MacPro since I don't have room for it, and no... I won't get rid of my PC desktop. That is why I want the MBP. I'm considering the 13" model with the idea I can attached it to my 24" display via the mini to DVI adapter. If I do this am I still limited to the models 1280x800 display, or can I bump it up to 1920x1080 using the external monitor? Also, if I close the laptop for space, can I still use it with a wireless keyboard and mouse, or does it have to remain open to use? I appreciate any input you might share.
