2020 i5 MBA vs 2020 MBP Basic Model



Hello r / Mac!

I'm sure there have already been like a million posts about which MacBook to choose, but tbh, all these posts and the corresponding answers have just confused me more.

So I I just want to explain my current situation, and hope your answers can help me choose the best MacBook for me!

I'm upgrading from a 12.9 ”iPad Pro 2018 (a great device, but definitely not a laptop replacement, which I learned the hard way). I'm discussing between the 2020 MBA quad-core i5 with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD, and the 2020 MBP base model.

Things I will use this laptop for:

Browsing Watching Videos (Netflix, prime, YouTube) Video conferencing (Skype and Zoom, with screen sharing) MS Office Light gaming (Football Manager 2020 and Minecraft)

The price for both devices are the same, but what worries me about MBA is thermal throttling (so unique, I know), and the 8th gen processors in MBP (I'm looking for this laptop that will last for at least 4 years).

Now that it's been enough time since the MBA came out, I hope this subreddit can share their experiences and advice on what unit you can get!

Thanks in advance!
