Hello Apple Support Community - hope you're fine and well!



I'm nearing an Apple hardware upgrade; my MacPro is starting to chug somewhat.


Hardware aside, what I'm concerned with is migrating FCP, which of course is mildly expensive!


My initial FCS pack is 5.1 (for Intel-based Macs) and also have an upgrade pack to FCP 7.0.3.


I notice Apple hardware seems to be phasing out disc drives, so I'm also wondering how to pull stuff over short of investing in an external dvd-rom drive.


So, one can I bring my FCP along for the ride? And two, how do I get it onto a optical driveless machine? Is networking an old and new machine an option, perhaps?


All advice is much appreciated!



Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.1), Dual-Core Intel Xeon 2.66 Ghz
