    I'm thinking of getting a Base 13" 2015 MBA with the 1.6gHz, and 8GB ram, processor and am wondering how the overall performance is?

    It will be used to surf the web, watch Facebook and Youtube videos, and work on simple Pages documents and Numbers spreadsheets.

    Especially concerned since the MBA's are early 2015 technology, and the base model has such a low processor.

    Insight appreciated if this model is decent now and for a few years out. Don't want to waste $$ if it stutters on Youtube, or might be obsolete in two years.

    Thank you!

    Seriously, none of your use cases can use the 2015 MBA to the full. In fact every smartphone today has enough bang to handle those tasks.

    You will be absolutely fine with those uses and more. The Air really is an impressive little notebook in terms of what it can do!
