Waiting to see performance first!

I guess m2 or m3 chip will be more stable...! as they will iron all the bugs out.

Get the pro version. More premium.. laptop w/o fan only works if u not a heavy user

I bought the earlier 2020 MBA but the fan is almost always on. Returned it. This fanless one sounds too good to be true. Can't wait for the reviews to be out.

it was mentioned in e keynote, e MBA has up to 2x faster storage.  normally lives up to their claim.

Is your typical usage heavy? Example photo/video editing and stuffs like that? If not, the Air should suffice.

Iím really looking into this as my current 2015 15Ē MBP is starting to break down. If it can easily support my Lightroom usage, itís the choice to be.

Yes reviews first.

You mean in physical Apple store? I donít think u can go physical Apple store for that. U will still have to buy it online.

In the initial days the wait might be longer cause they maybe fulfilling a lot of demand, somemore thereís customisation which takes even longer.

But maybe after sometime it should be faster.
