Final Cut Pro and a MacBook

So, I'm using FCP on my MacBook 2.16 with 2GBs of RAM. I had no problems installing it or running it. My biggest problem, though, is that I'm not getting any real-time video playback without having to render first (which is a huge hassle - I'd like to see my cuts in even low quality as soon as I make them). I have all of the RT settings set to their lowest quality settings, and I'm still having problems. Anybody who has used FCP on a MacBook (again, to clarify, NOT the MacBook Pro) know how to fix this?
I know it's been done.

I can't imagine much has been done with RT effects. They mostly rely on a dedicated video card such as what comes with the MBP. Perhaps you can find the answer on the Apple discussion forums.

This is why apple suggests that you dont use a MacBook or Mac Mini with final cut pro. Neither of them have a video card, so you will have this problem. I am not sure of how to fix it, and im not sure its possible. Maybe try calling Apple and ask them what to do.Mac Pro (Early 2009) 8 Core 2.26 GHz, 6 GB Ram, 640 GB Drive. Dell 2408WFP.
