These are the system tech requirement for FCE II:

a) Macintosh computer with a 350MHz PowerPC G4 or G5 processor and AGP graphics card.
b) RT Extreme requires a 500MHz PowerPC G4 (550MHz for PowerBook G4) or G5 processor or any dual PowerPC G4 or G5 processors.
c) Mac OS X v10.2.5 or later.
d) QuickTime 6.4 or later.
e) 384MB of RAM (512MB required for RT Extreme).
f) 40MB of available disk space required for installation.

I have a 12" iBook and wondering if it is enough to handle the video editing software.
a) Not sure because I have a G4 800mhz, not a PowerPC G4. Is it okay?
b) Same - not a PowerPC
c) Check
d) Check
e) Check
f) Check
