I am looking to buy the last model of MBP where FCP 7 worked smoothly. Would that be the 2015 or the 2013 models? Or? Thank you.

Dave, slightly dislexic. Last fully supported OS was 10.6.8. But it did OK under 10.7, and 10.8. SO you need a laptop that can run those OS versions at least. Need to make sure they can run it, if a computer was released at a time that 10.7 came out, you wouldn’t be able to install 10.6.8 on it.

Yes I know. I am retired and I really prefer FCP 7 to X. I have no problem staying in the world of Snow Leopard. I will basically take the computer offline. Actually a friend pointed out that I have an old 17″ MBP that was a workhorse with FCP 7. So I am going to wipe and then re-install Snow Leopard and upgrade it to 10.6.8 and and FCP 7 and then take it offline and see how it does.

HA!! I have done the exact same thing. I searched and searched on eBay for a laptop with OS 10.6.8, bought it, installed FCP 7 and took the whole thing offline. I never open the internet on it…it is devoted to editing. I am in heaven! I reinstalled all of my plug-ins. And it does edit 4K (as Pro Rez) to boot. I am HAPPY! It won’t edit MP4, but I hate that codec anyway.
