    You kind of answered your own question there. Your base 15" MacBook Pro meets all those requirements. You were probably concerned about the 9400M GPU - that runs on a PCI bus it meets the requirements for Final Cut Studio.

    What about editing the codec AVC-I-100 (after transcoding to prores), is it still possible in multi time lines ???

    :rolleyes:Funny you say that.

    My personal computer is a Macbook Pro Unibody (Dec 2008). Final Cut Pro runs beautifully on my Macbook Pro.

    I got to use the University edit suites, which use summer 2008 Mac Pros, to edit my graduation film. I've never had a worse experience of a Mac in my life. I was all excited and it just seemed to crash on me a hell of a lot. VERY disappointed in the Mac Pro (all 12 of the Mac Pros were the same - all the students had problems).
