I bought the base model M1 MacBook Air in June 2021 and it has been my main computer ever since. I've been using this computer every day since then, even editing my YouTube videos on it in Resolve!
I wasn't sure whether I was going to be interested in the fall 2021 launch of the new MacBooks, so I went with the cheapest base model in case I wanted to upgrade later. It turns out I didn't want to upgrade to a 14" Macbook Pro, but I've found myself wishing I had a bit more hard drive space.
If I sell this, my plan is to replace it with the M2 Air with 16gb RAM and 1tb SSD.
