I currently do 5 to 10 minute, two-camera music video promos (YouTube) with with FCP 6 on a six year old MacBook Pro (living Hell!). Looking for an affordable improvement via craigslist. Found the following MacBook Pro ($1200). Want to know if I am going to kick myself for not getting a newer system with Retina Display and nvidia 750m. I would really appreciate it if somebody would check the following specs and tell me how well FCP X might perform on this system. Many Thanks!
