I'm looking for something to replace my 2007 MBP until Apple releases MBPs without optical drives(vowed not to buy another until that useless piece of hardware isn't taking up space!)... I do a lot of work with Final Cut, editing Canon 5D Mark II footage, but I find myself never using my MBP as I have an octo-core Mac Pro for the heavy work. Has anyone tried Final Cut on the 11" MBA? I'd just need it for quick on-location stuff, like I could do all footage transcoding with my Mac Pro, possibly down to 720p Prores to edit on the MBA. How painful is this? Let me know of your experiences, if anyone's done this yet haha, thanks.
