I see all manner of answer to this question... I've heard I wouldn't be able to install it because it checks to verify I have the minimum requirements... I've heard it works fine as long as I have 2gb of memory... and I've heard it wont start once installed because it lacks a seperate graphics card.

I'm wondering if I can install and run it on a macbook 2.16 with 2gb of memory. I know even if it works it might be slower than on a desktop... I can accept that part... but before I fork over money for it I want to verify it can run at all on what I would be putting it on.

I'm sitting here trying to remember if Final Cut Pro Studio checked my MacBook Pro whenever we installed it at the office....I can't remember, but I do know Final Cut would run pretty slow on the MacBooks.

It won't run in a MacBook - it simply won't work on the GMA950. Fincal Cut Express does though.

life, that's for installing ALL of the apps in the suite. As Powerbook mentioned, only Color and Motion really require an accelerated graphics card, the rest of the programs will install and run just fine.

Oh really? Huh... you'd think they'd break it down more in that requirements page. Ah well... maybe I missed it. Thanx for setting me straight.

Surely the point is that there is little point getting Pro over Express if you cannot use these apps?
