I have wanted one of these since they first hit. I thought about waiting a little longer for a potential 3rd gen but decided to for it. I decided not to bump up the CPU, opting for a default Core M3 1.2 GHz. I did add 16GBs of RAM though. My thoughts on this are that it would be a purely personal computer for me. Meaning I will not install MS Office or my work email accounts. I will not add the Adobe suite at all. Instead, I just want this to be for me. So I am only using the built-in Pages, Numbers, and Keynote. I added Affinity Photo and Designer. I like PDF Expert from the iPad so that got added. And I have a few OMNI apps which I also added. I'm letting iCloud optimize the storage. Without my work crap all over it, I find even the 256 GB SSD to be plenty. For my personal uses, which is mostly using it for personal learning, I find it perfect. I wanted the lightest possible and this is very light-weight. So far I don't notice any speed issues at all. I'm going to keep it simple and keep the apps modern.
