    First off, I understand the Macbook Pro is by far a better option for HD/SD video editing using Final Cut/Final Cut Express, however I just want to know how well it would run on an Air and if anyone has tried it on his or her Air (and what model). I'm strongly considering buying one due to its ultra-portable form factor, but I occasionally do some more advanced video editing than just iMovie-type stuff. I also found a video of the 11" model running Left 4 Dead 2 at a very smooth FPS, is video editing really more intense than 3D games?

    Where are you going to store all the video files?

    I would have at least the 128gb memory and would just store it on there. I wouldn't any HD clips that were longer than a minute or two. I'd probably have an external HD with me to put extra clips on anyways. There would never be that many on the laptop itself.
