    Smile MacBook Pro 15inch, mid-2009, 8GB, 125GB SSD
    Hi all

    I am about to buy the above MacBook at a bargain price.

    My question is whether this would comfortably run FCPX?

    Any help would be appreciated

    Depends on what OS is on the machine, or what it is capable of running - software needs macOS 10.13.6 or later. Final Cut Pro X - Technical Specifications

    That's a ten-year-old notebook so check prices on ebay etc to see if you really are getting a 'bargain'.

    If the shoe fits, buy it in every colour.

    Take note that a Mid 2009 15" Notebook can only run up to 10.11.6. As you have been told, FCPX needs at least 10.13.6 or later. You might want to pass up that "bargain" and look for something a lot newer.
