The "Love my M1 Air" option has a little graph icon next to it that I cannot click. Regardless, I love my base model M1 Air and I'm definitely keeping it.

+1 for the non-existent "Happy with my M1 Pro and not planning to change" option.

I love everything about the M1 chip. Its fast, fluid, and is an impressive look at the future of Apple machines. Unfortunately, and I thought this would be the case, I just can't deal with the small size of the 13" MBP. I've always used either the 15" and most recently 16" and the 13" is just uncomfortable for me to hold on my lap and type on it. Its much too narrow for me and requires me to sit in certain positions to make it comfortable on my lap. The 16" just sits there and for me is much more comfortable. I also enjoy the larger screen of the 16" and didn't like looking at the 13" screen nearly as much.

Performance wise though, the M1 is legit and I love it. I'll definitely be moving to it when they release a 16" version.

I upgraded base MBA to the 8 core MBA with 512GB - even though I know it's not a "gaming machine" I needed a great everyday machine with great keyboard - with a side effect of playing a ton of strategy games in my PC backlog. So far I've tried 18 games and they all work really well for the most part. I'm blown away playing full fat desktop games on medium settings at 30-60FPS, without a hint of fans.
