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:
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!
