I lost my 2011 Macbook Air a few months ago. Since then, I've been running Linux on an old PC laptop and have been using an iPad to supplement some of the things I used to do with my Mac (OmniFocus, spreadsheets, shared iCloud documents, etc.) but I'm not enjoying the compromises that I've had to make and want to get back to MacOS. I don't need a lot of power and money is an issue. I've been eying the 2018 Macbook Air. I'm very close to making the purchase but two things make me hesitant: I've seen a lot of reports regarding keyboard issues, despite that the new MBA has a third generation keyboard. Given the one year warranty, I'm cautiously optimistic that I will be ok with this. More concerning is the looming transition to ARM chips. I want to spend my money on something that will receive OS support for as long as possible and would like to expect 7-8 years. Would I be limiting the life of my purchase by grabbing what may be one of the last Intel-based Macs? Should I continue to work in my current state for one more year in order to get in on the newer ARM machines? I know that no one can say exactly what Apple will do but I would like to avoid a mistake if there is indeed a glaring issue that I'm missing. Thank you!
