is the 13' MBP capable of doing good video editing with FCP or should i get a 15'?


I have a 13" MBP and have edited many videos (less than 3 minute news videos) on it with FCP. It has worked great. Only problem is that converting to a different source takes a little time. HD video took even longer, but it did this even using a G5 at my school. However, if you have the money for a 15" obviously it will be better to have more space. Also the computer is faster.

^ nah apple care doesnt cover that.. So u are going to have to buy a new one but dont buy it from apple, its a rip off.. Check amazon and ebay, u can always get a good deal on one..


You need to buy shit straight through Apple or they won't fix it. I bought a keyboard replacement and brought it with me when I went to have my keyboard replaced and they refused to take it and said we don't deal with parts not bought directly from apple.

You're supposed to go through http://www.apple.com/macosx/uptodate/

Your iTunes and apps are fine.

Downloaded and installed a couple of hours ago. It's looking good, I'm still getting accustomed to the new features. If anyone comes across any cool new things, let us know.
