Is the Air a good complement to the 15-16”MBP?

Computer to use until the 16 comes out and the. Would use this as a back up
Or light weight travel. Wheat have others experience been? I maybe months before this new 16” comes out so this will be my machine for a while !

Depends what you intend to do with it and where.

My ipad is my macbook complementary device. I find the ipad far more useful when i am not at a desk than any laptop.

And if i am at a desk, the laptop size is largely irrelevant.

In your situation, i wouldn't bother having two laptops personally.

I got the base MBA for the same reason. I've ended up using the MBA almost exclusively. I'll probably get a Mac mini to replace the MBP.

Really? Did it suit most of your needs I assume? I don’t think the 16 will be available until Nov at the earliest ...... so I need something besides an iPad ! Lol
