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 searched and cannot find any specs or a video of it running on the web and have only found one forum in which a few people claim it runs smoothly. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks .

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?

What do you think?
