I need some help choosing the right kind of Mac for Final Cut use.
I'm planning to get the new MacBook Pro, and I am wondering if that is a good choice specifically to edit on Final Cut, and what do I have to take into consideration?

minimum 4 BG
how much of CPU Power would be suggested?
Firewire concerns, for speed

A laptop is not ideal for editing video, especially HD, so get and iMac if possible for the best editing performance. Editing is possible though on the new MBP though, even the 13" could actually handle some light editing.

How do you like them Apples?

To tell you the truth, I use a macbook pro 2007 17 inch for editing, and while it isn't the most powerful laptop in the world, I am able to edit HD video fine. The render sometimes takes longer than I plan, but overall editing on a macbook pro is fine.
