My old 15-inch MacBook Pro (MBP) died on me a few months ago. Since that time, I had to stop doing any mobile editing or other computing. I currently use my desktop machine for everything, but I'm thinking about getting a new MBP down the road. I used to run Final Cut Studio 3 on my old MBP.

 

Can any of the new MBPs run the latest Final Cut Pro X? Are the built-in graphics circuits up to handling FCP, or are they limited to just certain models now?

 

Currently, I use a tape-based cam (HDV), but I would like to eventually move to the newer tapeless HD systems.
