    Specs:
    Currently 13" Late 2010 MBA, 4GB/128GB; Early 2011 13" MBP, dual core i7 2.7ghz, 4gb ram, 500gb hd
    It'll run Final Cut Studio, but not great. As for Color, for 4k and DPX files, you want a minimum of 512MB of video RAM, and the MBP 13" has 256MB shared video RAM. Personally, if you're investing in FCS, I'd pony up the extra bucks and go with a MBP 15" with dedicated graphics card and video RAM. The 13", I'm afraid, is just going to frustrate you.

    i agree with the guy above. i used mine to make a music video, it was alright but it kept saying out of memory when trying to import videos to the bin. so yeah, frustrating, but do-able with some patience.

    I run FCE 4 on my 13" Pro. It works well. Occasionally you may notice some minor lagging, but it is not a huge deal. I may end up getting more RAM one day. But at the moment, 4 G is enough for me.

    Thanks for all your advice guys.

    I decided to go with it as It was only costing me 675. Its go 2gb ram, how much would an update to 4gbs cost just so it runs colour and final cut tht bit smoother?

    It will probably cost you around $100. So I would look on amazon.com if I were you.
