older computer settings for Alexa

I am shooting a short film on the Alexa and am data managing the clips myself and editing as well.

We would be shooting on SxS Cards in ProRes 4444 and I wanted to know since I have never used the Alexa before or handled the footage, if anyone has some advice as to what settings in FCP 7 I should put the system settings to, so the clips can run on my laptop while on set so I can check to see if the clips transferred correctly. We're most likely shooting in Log-C.

I've been reading up on the FAQ on the Arri website and it seems pretty straight forward but I wanted to ask some people on here who have worked with it to see what they think as well.

I am working on a MacBook Pro from 2008 (silver body). These are my specifications on my laptop.

Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2.5 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2
L2 Cache: 6 MB
Memory: 4 GB

OSX Snow Leopard: 10.6.7

Is there an Easy Set up already in FCP that would be best for this footage or does anyone have a specific set of settings that will make the footage run smoothly on my machine? Also, can the LUT generator on Arri's site be applied to the footage in FCP to see a decent working image while I edit, instead of the bland Log-C?

Thank you.
