oops, I don't think the MBA has 8gb options...I'll assume Lightroom would be fine with 4gb unless someone has other experiences

It will be "fine," but you will have hit the ceiling. No more RAM can ever be added. Not sure you will be happy with that long term.

The Mac mini solution is interesting because you can use the ports to add external drives, even a Thunderbolt RAID, and it takes 16GB RAM.

But if you're going desktop, the DIY PC seems like a much more cost effective option.
