Any MacBook Pro with an express34 slot in it will work. Of course you should capture to FW800 drive.

AJA(US) says:

MacBook Pro or Windows Laptop Ingests:

* DVCPRO HD
* DV25/DV50
* SD Uncompessed
* Apple ProRes 422 (Mac Pro and MacBook Pro only)
* SD and limited HD

Can you capture 1080i(proresHQ)with MBP+io express?

From contact i've had with AJA, and experience with my AJA IO Express you can capture 1080 (25 for me) ProRes 422, not HQ with the macbook pro 17inch onto firewire 800.

Its to do with only dual core apparently, needs 4 core minimum for ProRes 422 HQ.

From my experience you can capture 5 seconds or so before dropped frames occur.

But there are plenty of discussions on whether HQ or Non HQ makes a difference etc, most say they have an easier time with non HQ.

My motto is if its good enough for walter, shane etc its good enough for me :)

oh, didn't see the i7 macbook bit, i have used unibody 17inch and previous version and only gotten 1080 ProRes (not HQ) you'd have to test it for the new one I guess, but is still dual core isn't it?
