Is the 13" MacBook Pro sufficient for running the new Final Cut Pro Software?

My son will be a Freshman Journalism major this Fall. Along with his academic needs, his current computer habits are pretty much limited to FB, minimal online gaming, searching the Web, & music. He is hoping to get into some photography in college and possibly some filmmaking classes. Will the MacBook Pro 13 be sufficient for these activities?

  • The MacBook Pro 13 inch can handle that. I would get the higher end MacBook Pro for the Intel i7.
