    I'm pretty sure you'll be OK if you plan to do more post-editing than live recording... isn't there a USB connection on the back of the Mbox 2? The reason why Firewire is recommended is because that protocol can sustain a higher rate of transfer vs. USB, which is almost essential if you want to record at 24-bit/96kHz.

    If it's a MacBook Pro, then yes it will run it.
    My PowerBook G4 ran it just fine, so there really shouldn't be any reason why a MBP wouldn't do the same.

    Your MBP will most definitely run it fine. That's a perfect set-up if you ask me!
    make sure you eventually will want to get an external harddrive. You'll want to keep all those projects on the external, or your computer will run very hot and hard. Best of luck. Protools is the best out there
