I'm either going to be purchasing a Mac Book or Mac Book Pro for college. I'll be using it for my film/television classes and also for editing fun things on the side. I plan on at least having 2 GB of RAM on the machine with a 160 or 200 GB hard drive. I'm just worried about the inferior video card on the Mac Book. Is it sufficient enough to run Final Cut Express smoothly or should I just upgrade to the Pro for the better video card? Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Sorry. I'm usually better about searching first but I'm new to Macs and got a little bit excited. I think I'll go with the Pro but if anyone has anything else to say about the video card thing then still feel free to respond.
