    Specs:
    '09 8-core MacPro | '12 MBA | iPad 2 16GB | iPhone 5C 16GB
    Apple Color (FCS2) on MacBook Pro
    I was reading through the tech specs for Final Cut Studio 2 just doing my research for all the equipment I'm hoping to purchase soon and came across something a bit disappointing with Color. I'm not sure if I misread it but it seemed like the specs for Color were basically saying that it won't work to it's full potential unless you're using it on a Mac Pro with a real high-end graphics card. Will it not work on a late model MacBook Pro? Mine's the 2.2 Santa Rosa model with an NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT with 128MB RAM, is that insufficient for Color to do it's work? It's a shame if it does cause that means my timeline has to be altered again.

    Thanks for your help!

    Go back and look at the specs. They seem less detailed than I remember. You box qualifies.

    I've seen Color demonstrated on a Macbook Pro before so I know it can work. I can't tell you how well. Perhaps forums that talk more about this, such as at Apple can help you answer that.

    That's good to know, thanks man. I may have just interpreted it wrong, but I was under the impression that it wouldn't work on anything less than a Mac Pro.
