Thank you very much for your generous donation of the Macbook Pros to us this year. The laptops will be very helpful because now you can work at home to get your projects done faster, you can use a laptop every quarter, and it now has Final Cut Pro X.
Because everybody in the class has a laptop, we can take it home to work on our projects. It was hard to get your editing done on time if you didn't have a laptop because you could only work on your project during school hours. This was the result of only being able to use the desktops at school. The desktops were great, you just couldn't work on your project on long weekends or after school, which was when I liked to work on them the most.
Another effect of everybody having a laptop is that you don't need to share the laptops. It was all by luck that you got a laptop. You'd be guaranteed to get the laptop once, but that was it. All the rest of the time, getting a laptop was by sheer luck. If you were really unlucky, you would get the laptop in first quarter and have to use a desktop the rest of the year, which as I previously stated, made it a lot harder. If you can take the laptop home, you can work on your project longer, so you would have a better project.
The new laptops also have Final Cut Pro X, which is fantastic. Final Cut Pro Seven was great, Final Cut Pro X just has new features that are leagues above it. The two main features are the auto-rendering and auto-saving. Auto-rendering is great because some times, it takes an hour for the video to render. For it to render, you used to have to stop working on it, but because of the new feature, it now renders without you having to stop, which can save a lot of time. Auto-save is also good because the computer some times crashes before you can save or you forget to save. Now with Final Cut Pro X, you don't have to worry about either of those things.
Thank you very much for your immensely generous donation. It will be a great help this year. It will help with getting projects done, and you get a laptop every quarter. It's also great that they have Final Cut Pro X on them. Thank you very much.
