Anyone knows if delivery times for MBA is accurate? Thinking of ordering one but it says delivery date 22/4 - 29/4. Are there times where the delivery is earlier than stated timing?

Largely accurate.
However, due to the global situation affecting even logistics and shipments, give and take is necessary, expect it to arrive on the last few days or even exceeding quoted dates.

Probably not.
The fan in MBA seems to spin up relatively easily for moderate tasks

Static pressure fan

Not as effective as airflow fans

The i5 actually has worse battery life, hotter and louder compared to the 2019 version. Yes it's faster but if you want better battery life and don't do any intensive tasks, suggest to go for the i3 version which is good enough for basic tasks.
