    I own a MBP for mid 2009 with LION, internal drive is 7200 rpm , 2.66 ghz, 8gb ram and NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB

    i   run on it final cut 7 and fcx, have many problem with apple motion on hd  motion graphic project, My question is if can approach to avid media composer 6 at least to study it.
    probalby  I will have to replace my internal drive beacuse  it is starting to give some problem,   I have found a sdd drive at a convenient proice but it is 5400 rpm, what drive do you suggest to replace with? for project files i use  a graid fw 800  2 tera

    Ali.......

    MC 6.0.5 for example which is the latest in that code base - works with 

    Lion 10.7.4, 10.7.5 as well as Mtn Lion 10.8.2, 10.8.3 and 10.8.4

    You might have an issue with Limited HD playback but you should be ok.  The rub here is that we dont sell MC 6.x any longer but if you go on the Download Center - you can download and try it.  http://esd.avid.com/ProductList.aspx

    I run MC 6.5 on almost that exact same system, MBP mid 2009, running 10.8.4.  I have the 2.8 GHz processor rather than 2.66 - otherwise, I think you might have an identical system.

    System drive, if you can find something like a 7200 RPM hybrid drive, that can be a nice boost.  Me, I have a 750GB 7200 RPM hybrid system drive, and I also replaced the optical drive with a second internal hard drive for media - 750GB, 7200rpm HDD - not hybrid.

    Works pretty well - I don't do much HD on it, lots of DV.  I'll often use it as a way to continue on projects that I start on my main system at home.  I'll transcode my raw video to something like 15:1 to save space, put it on the laptop, and edit.  If I have more space available at any given time, maybe I'll use DV, or maybe a lower-grade DNxHD.

    But in general, yes - I'd say you can use it to experiment and learn.  Install the trial, and see how you like it!
