How good is it for iMovie? Should I wait for Haswell?

The model I'm most interested in is the $799 (Core i7 quad-core 2.3 GHz), plus the 1TB Fusion Drive option, and 8GB RAM (I'll add that later myself; Apple charges a fortune for that). How well will iMovie work on this machine? Will it lag, at all? I'm currently using a Late 2009 model with Intel Core 2 Duo, and it lags way too much.

How much of a difference will Haswell make for my needs? (Mostly video editing in iMovie.)

if you need it buy it.
if you can wait for the refresh i would say wait.

this close to a refresh which we know they have started to do with the Airs i would say your looking at a few months before the Mini gets its refresh. My guess is that it will be refreshed when they release Mavericks. i have my fingers crossed that it would bee sooner but i doubt it. i think the last refresh was in September or October of last year.
