I can't get my head around that new case. It looks like they cello-taped a MacBook Air to a stand. I edited a 7 minute video on an 11" MBA* for a bit of fun, just to see how it faired, and, yeah I guess it worked. It lagged a lot, it's in no way ideal, but I got a 1080p video up to 7 minutes before deciding that I couldn't be bothered anymore - And I had a bit of compositions in it. Obviously the MBA is much thinner than the new iMac, and the specs aren't close. But I can't help but feel it's going to get hot quickly and just go really slow. So I'm pretty much wondering, how do people feel about this for some video editing? I would tell you what I used to edit on, if someone asks I will. I just don't want this message to get too big. *I was using the internal SSD. ---------- Edit: Just as an update, I've got the top of the range 21.5" iMac, and it works perfectly fine for video editing, no worries here. Specs: 3.1GHz i7 16GB RAM GeForce 650M 512MB 1TB Fusion Drive 4TB G-RAID FireWire 800 (For scratch) At my College, we also have the lowest specs 21.5", and that works perfectly fine as well...this question is redundant, I can't believe I had a bit of doubt...comparing a MBA to an iMac?
