Selecting Hardware

Selecting hardware for online and offline projects involves many factors, including budget, convenience, and flexibility. When you make any choices about hardware, take into account the other components in the system to avoid conflicts. A helpful reseller can make the difference between a smooth and rough first day, so choose your supplier based not only on price but also support and experience.

Computer

Selecting your computer setup is relatively straightforward. Basically, when it comes to speed and RAM, the more you have, the greater the power and flexibility. Final Cut Pro is amazingly flexible, and it can run on a variety of CPU and laptop configurations. You can find the current minimum system requirements for Final Cut Pro on the Apple Web site (www.apple.com/finalcutpro/specs.html). However, if you want an optimal system, you must go beyond the minimum requirements. Generally the computer equation depends on your needs: project size + media codec + media storage + additional components + portability + budget = correct choice.
