    I would be very, very suprised if it couldn't. It's a pretty powerful machine.

    If the Core2Duo 11 inch Macbook Air can run FCP rather well I can't see why a i5 Macbook Pro can't.

    Requirements to install all Final Cut Studio applications

    * Mac computer with an Intel processor
    * 1GB of RAM (2GB of RAM recommended when working with compressed HD and uncompressed SD sources; 4GB of RAM recommended when working with uncompressed HD sources)
    * ATI or NVIDIA graphics processor (integrated Intel graphics processors not supported)

    It is a powerful piece of art, so yeah it can ;) Not only express, but FCP.

    Those requirements are from July 2009 when Final Cut had it's last major update and refer to the old Intel GMA 950 and X3100.

    Has it been officially confirmed that the new Intel HD 3000 graphics are not supported?

    It is still what is written on apple website, just check the link .

    The question would be more : has it been officially confirmed that the new intel hd 3000 graphics will be supported ?

    Also, not supported does not necessarily mean that it doesnt work.

    As another person has stated this is also from the days of the x3100 and GMA950 which were way below the performance of the current intel graphics on offer in the 13".

    I dont expect apple will even update the specs required for final cut until they bring out a new one.

    I had a thread about this going a few hours earlier.
    I it probably will work. FCP (almost) doesn't use the GPU at all. Only Motion and Color.
