Before Lion was released, I attempted to install FCP7 on a Macbook Intel Core 2 Duo and it told me that FCP7 did not work on a Macbook. If I recall correctly, I was told by an Apple Store representative that the Macbook was not powerful enough and that a Macbook Pro was required. I couldn't return FCP7 (actually Studio 3) because it had been opened. I bought Final Cut Express for my Macbook.


I have now installed Lion and just tried to install FCP7/Suite3 again. As if by magic, it installed without complaint.


Has Lion somehow transformed my Macbook into a Pro model?

Final Cut Pro 7

No, whoever told you that was an ill-informed twit.  Not to put too fine a point on it

The Apple Genius' typically aren't in some instances.  In the commercials, you see them knowing everything about the consumer apps.  When it comes to the ProApps, however, some knowledge is lacking.

If they're such geniuses, why are they working at the mall?
