Any ideas on how this machine will do with 1080 60p video editing and some light photo editing?
It'll do it. The question is whether you care how long it takes?
More than adequately imo. As fast as the Pro? No, but will it be done within a reasonable time? Most likely.
Light editing for one person could be something totally different for another. If you mean stitching some clips/phots together with transitions and stuff like that it will be more than adequate. Its an extremely low power CPU (Y series) so I wouldn't expect your output file too quickly depending on the length of the video.
I used to have the latest Macbook for photo editing
It was clearly painful to use photoshop on it to open several RAW files at the same time
I don't see how it could be comfy to edit videos with a MB, therefore, as the new MBA has a similar processor (or slightly faster), it won't be much different
I am also hesitating, so waiting for reviews and benchs
How much RAM did you have? I'm in the same boat, except I'm on a 2011 MBP.
I would think 1080p60 wouldn't tax it too badly. May have longer waits when rendering and exporting, but playback should be good. Your "big brother" (4K vs. 1080p) thread is here.
