      I was wondering if using an external hard drive at 7200rpm with fire wire connection will process as fast as an internal hard drive of the same type? I use a macpro with internal hard drive. I edit with Final Cut Express. I also have a MacBook 4megs ram and 250mb internal hard drive. I would like to start a new project with the MacBook while I am away from the Macpro and then transfer the project into the macpro when I get back home. Any thoughts. I suspect it will come down to the Gbs transfer rate. Thanks
