Will run, but for serious editing mac pro is way better.
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 ???
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).
will it run like 100% good
