new MacBook Pro and PT 8 - anyone have it working?

Hello,

It looks like I am about to get one of these (it's a work-bought machine):

Apple 13.3" MacBook Pro Intel Core 2 Duo 2.26GHz, 2GB RAM, 160GB Hard Drive, NVIDIA GeForce 9400M, SuperDrive - Aluminum unibody MB990LL/A

Anyone have this machine working with Pro Tools 8?

thanks

I got the other 13" model. (2,53 and 4GB ram) running the "prerelease" PT 8.0.3pr on OSX 10.6.2.

It's working OK. I do get occasional errors here and there, but no show stoppers. Apart from the known bugs that are documented on the digi site. Yellow interface with some of the AIR instruments for instance.

All my other plugins (NI, Fabfilter, IK Multimedia, PSP, McDSP, etc) work great.

Thanks - I saw the note on digi's site about the yellow interface on some plug-ins.

Does that mean they are useless, or just don't look the same?

Thanks,

Useless...

As soon as you start turning knobs and stuff it becomes a mess. I can't use Hybrid and Stucture at the moment. Oddly enough, Transfuser is on their list as well, but is working fine for me... No yellow interface or anything

Here for the gear
 

Proud to say I got a new 17" MBP, 3GHz with 7,200 rpm drive and have 0 problems other than the well documented yellow screens with Air. That's using the LE pr for Snow Leopard version. All other plug-ins I run (IK Multi, Alien Connections etc.etc.) work fine.

Good to hear paolojm.

Hopefully the AIR instruments will get sorted out.
