I haven’t seen when Excel is going is going to be compatible, but outside of that I think you’d be happy.ill use it for Microsoft excel, YouTube, web browsing, organization tasks, basic stuff. I just like speed to be honest

I’d HIGHLY recommend for the first set of reviews to come out though. We have very rough approximations of what things MIGHT look like from what people have done with the Mac Mini prototypes. If you’ve been waiting a while, I’d say “sure why not”. Just want to make sure you are satisfied with it.
One other thing, that I think is important is your personal disposable budget. I bought a Macbook Pro 16 in April. I’ll be watching things, as it shakes out personally. If I was running my aging out MacBook Pro 13 that I was using before April, I probably just would have pulled the trigger.
Wait. Excel isn’t compatible?
no one really knows of the performance yet... everything is speculative. You cant go on just numbers honestly. I just have a hard time understanding why anyone would need such a long battery life, its not like anyone is traveling that far during a pandemic? I also do NOT think an Air will touch the performance of a recent pro...Better performance
Supreme battery life
If those are important to you, upgrade. These are the best laptops Apple has ever made.
So what’s your plan? Just sell your current mbp on eBay?Since you're going from an air to an air, I can't imagine the new MBA not being able to run everything you want to do, whether the apps are native or under rosetta 2. Honestly the better battery life alone would be worth it for me. I have a 15" Retina MBP that still works perfectly, but as soon as an Arm 16" MBP is announced, im jumping ship.

I have 2 i7 - 2015 15" and 2019 16" and my 2015 is getting aged so I am looking at replacing my 2015 Retina MBP with this M1 MBA for the weight savings, increased battery life, and better performance.Since you're going from an air to an air, I can't imagine the new MBA not being able to run everything you want to do, whether the apps are native or under rosetta 2.

Now that the reviews are out... should people be upgrading?
im worried my 2020 MacBook Air ? will be worth nothing in a year and I should just sell now to recoup something and by an M1
I'm living in overseas. I sold my MBA i5 2020 at around 770USD. So, I still need to pay 229USD more to get the M1 model... Worth it for me since I don't use Microsoft office in Mac and I want to try running iOS app in my Mac. As my last reply, I think the big difference is the heat generated when performing same tasks between i5 & M1. When using i5, I can feel a bit warm on the rear side. When using M1, I didn't feel any warm on the rear side.How much did you get for it? Worth it?
Check if the apps you use are Universal 2 binaries by the time you make the transitionI just bought an i5 8 gb MacBook Air in the spring. I could probably sell it for a decent price as its in perfect condition. What would be the benefits of selling and upgrading to the new ARM MacBook Air?
