There is a new element in media management that is a game changer with 10.1, and that are Libraries. Those already using FCP X 10.0.9 or earlier should read our Upgrade Advisory in this article before upgrading. Also, since FCP X 10.1 requires you are running OS X 10.9 Mavericks, before upgrading the OS, verify all third -party software and hardware have had all necessary updates installed.
