Upgrade?

I have until Dec. 20th to decide whether to pay $199 for an upgrade from FCP 4 to FCP5 Universal. Is it worth it? Or should I wait and just put it towards FCP 6?

Upgrade now! Who knows when FCP 6 is coming out, and FCP 5.1 is great!
But, it's all up to you.

is there a difference between FCP Universal and FCP 5.1.2?

When you buy FCS Universal they ship FCS Version 5.1. You can then use Software Update to get Version 5.1.1 and 5.1.2. All versions after Version 5.1 are Universal - meaning they can run on both Intel and PowerPC machines.
