    We are likely getting a family member a new computer for Christmas. He has a late 2010 MBP, mid-tier off the shelf model. He mostly uses it word processing, but every now and then, he needs to use Final Cut. If we upgrade him to a top-of-the-line MBA with the HD and RAM upgraded (though with the i5 processor still the default), will he see a dip in performance for FCX? Or should the MBA be handle his needs?

    His FCX needs aren't needing to be rendered in 4K, or even 1080p.

    By the way, it's a 17" model that he'd be replacing.
