Interesting article. Thanks for the effort in the perf numbers. I think you forgot the killer feature from my perspective. Battery life improvements not having to run all that code locally.
Oh you're right! My Macbook Pro used to have only 2 hours of battery time when my Surface Go lasts all day... There's probably a very interesting ecological argument here, between the used batteries, the less efficient power usage and the power sources which are probably greener in a datacenter than in a city. Also, less heat in the office during the summer!
Which has the equivalent downside: can't access your code in the cloud when you're offline or with a crappy connection.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
