It doesn't really work like that. As a freelance drama director friend said to me a few years ago "I'm being retired" - the bookings were getting fewer as people booked younger people. It's the way of things.

In the same way, it's probably time to just retire your gear, forget FCP7 (as I reluctantly did), and look at the market as a whole. Your Apple Cinemas were extremely impressive in their day, but can now be replaced with the latest monitors with much better resolution for much less money. Premiere Pro or Edius will give you an editing system which gets close to what you're used to, and a PC is endlessly upgradable for not much money. My Apple gear now sits on the floor next to me gathering dust. Sometimes I have to update FCP7 projects, and I go back to a system I loved - but it just isn't up to modern needs and that's that. Time to move on - look at the wider world.
