    I need a suggested machine to run final cut express with HD footage well!


    ATM the budget is anything! But the minimum suggestion would be very nice!

    well I would say that the MacBook is out of the question, but the middle range (maybe the bottom range) MacBook Pro would do you fine.

    Although if you have the money, the 17" MacBook Pro with the HD screen upgrade would look great if you are using HD footage

    Of course if you do not need something portable at all, take a look at the Mac Pro, as it would run FCE beautifully

    bottom range macbook pro would be fine...obviously you pay for what you get so a maxed out macpro at over £4000 ($8000) would also be great :D...but the MBP might be slightly better considering its slightly cheaper :D

    but seriously...any MBP..depends on your screen requirements...oh and wait til january if you can...as there have been rumored upgrades to both the MBP and the MacPro

    Thanks for all your suggestions but Im pretty keen on getting a portable as I will move it between collage and home alot and on planes etc...
