This is what I replaced my 2010 MBP with and it works great with FCP X. I have it configured with 32 GB of RAM and a 3TB 7200RPM drive.

Re: macbook pro

Aren't they getting ready to refresh the MBPs in weeks, like as early as June 11? I've got a mid 2010 MBP that's needing to be replaced but I figured I could limp through until then. Or use my Mac Pro desktop.

I know they recently did an upgrade but is anybody else waiting for the June upgrade like me?

Re: macbook pro

It's expected that the new generation of Intel processors will be announced soon but that doesn't mean that anything will be delivered before the fall or later. The speed improvements are expected to be decent, (possibly 10% processor improvemnt and 40% graphics improvement in MacBooks and iMac, all rumors right now) but until somebody gets to do some real world tests it's hard to say if it's worth the wait if you need a computer upgrade right now.

Re: macbook pro

I'm hearing the most noticeable improvement Haswell chips will be battery life. Some say up to 50% (but under what circumstances). Apple might make additional changes though.

I can make some wild guesses (not even spotted on rumor sites). Maybe two Thunderbolt ports on non Retina MBP for example.

Re: macbook pro

Hey Charlie - Looks like you really scored!

On another note, everybody keeps fixating on computer speed and that's certainly one thing to consider. But considering the holistic picture that includes operating system, peripheral, application, and security updates, the Apple system is much easier to work with. My PC is a total pain to do updates with because it seemed there was always one problem after another.
