    MacBook runs FCP well

    Wow, and that's news? I have run FCP on iBooks before (G3/600 and G4/800), which always have run "quite well". It's only rendering that takes a small amount of time more than other machines, but I never felt an iBook was any less to run FCP. Of course with the current speed of the MacBooks and FCP being an Universal application, it runs FCP "quite well". Who would have thought it wouldn't? Don't need a test to tell me that.
