Hello folks,
I am wondering if Final Cut Express 4.0 runs smoothly with no problem on 13 inch, 2.26 GHz Mac Book Pro.
Thank you

Well I run FCP on a 17" MBP, 2.6GHZ, 7,000rpm HD. It runs fine.

I'd think that the questions for you would be:
Disk space - are you going to be editing on an external disk?
RAM - the more the merrier
Screen real estate - will you be constrained by the pixels
Video card - seriously benefits from a good one!
