So I got my MacBook Pro on Monday, June 25th. I was very excited and wanted to try it out ASAP. I had pre-installed FCE and everything was working fine. The heat however is a HUGE issue as well as the lack of support for 3rd party external HDD. I have a Seagate and it takes up a USB port and guess what when I try to use it as a scratch disk for FCE or even iMovie it will not work! I am also unsatisfied with FCE. It seemed like the DEV's just threw something together in a few hours and the interface is very confusing. I tried to hook up my DV camcorder and it would not batch capture or even detect scenes for that matter! Seeing as I was the one to convince my parents to allow me to pay for this computer, I may be returning it and hearing a lot of "I told you so's" from them. Even though half of it is the manufacturer's problem with the terrible heat issues. When I am running one APP it should not be going all the way up to 70 degrees celcius! Also the 160 GB HDD is just not enough. And when you open it up there is about 30 GB of useless crap on there. With a laptop that is a lot of memory. I might just return this computer and get a Windows computer. Yeah all of you will be saying "oh Mac is better". I am sure it is with no viruses and everything, but at least I can get some reliable hardware from a company like HP or CyberPower.
