My main computer is a pc desktop that was build mainly for video and photo editing. I can easily work with 1000+ raw 16meg raw files in lightroom and adobe camera raw (photoshop) but now im looking not for a replacement of that pc, but just for a laptop to work on the few times per week im away from my main workstation, just to not get that behind in my workflow... My problem now is that i dont know if a base model 13' MBA will be enough for at least editing (not exporting) that many files at once. I do care about screen quality (also considering a 13' non retina) Battery life is not an issue. Do care about portability. Wont use it for video editing. Ill move the LR catalogs or xmp files to main pc, so render/export times wont be an issue. Other uses: email, blogging, light dreamweaver use, photo mechanic, surfing. So... Any experience playing around with that many files on those programs? Ill appreciate any feedback you guys could give..
