I had an air for a while and for web development especially with small apps it worked great! And for travel was amazing I didn’t even know it was in my bag! I just prefer my pro because i like the bigger screen and I use it for more than just work and the air isn’t great with handling big applications but with the new m1 chip could definitely be a different story

I got the M1 Air as soon as it was out and I can't be happier. It's cold as ice, silent and the battery life is mindblowing. A huge upgrade from my 15 inch Pro.
