I used to run Visual Studio in Windows 10 running on a VM on my Macbook Air mid 2013 1.8 Ghz, 8 Gb RAM, 512GB SSD. Visual Studio would slow down and the fan would almost always be running with full CPU load. And I would have to restart the VM at least once a day. So I moved to a VM hosted in Azure and I connect through Mac MS RDP client. And it's all good, but I spend about $80/month for this service for a 2.2 Ghz, 8Gb RAM VM. So, I want to know how much faster the new Air CPU will be and if you think it would be worth going out and buying one and using it to host Windows and Visual Studio again? I'm trying to find the cheapest solution here!!! I have a $150 Apple gift card and I could trade in my mid 2013 air for ~$200 and I would apply both to the new Air. I'm fully aware of the Macbook Pro, but I don't want to spend any money. I'm cheap and would rather spend a monthly charge for the Azure service then 2000+ for a Macbook Pro 4 core, 16Gb Ram 256GB SSD bla bla bla. I also want to use a Mac isntead of a Windows laptop as I like the look/feel/form factor/ OS daily use of the Apple laptops. What would you do?
