I have been using M1 MacBook Air Pro for 1 month and I am absolutely blown away by it. It doesn't feel like an upgrade, it feels like I am using something else.

VS Code takes a second to load and never slows down even for huge workspaces. Build time has been reduced by half or even less.

I haven't heard the fans yet. The battery lasts 24 hours even with heavy use.

It's unbelievable what Apple has done here.

There is only M1 MacBook Air and M1 MacBook Pro. If you have the Air then there are no fans to be heard 😉

Oops, I said Air Pro 😛

I have the Pro variant with 16 GB of Ram. I think the I haven't heard the fans yet because I haven't been able to push it to its limits.

The amount of softwares I run was impossible to run smoothly for my old 2019 Macbook Air but this machine doesn't even break a sweat.
