Upgraded from the OG SE (c. 2016) to the 12. It’s better.

That MBA review piqued my interest it's fair to say.

Yeap, looks like at the lower end of the performance ratio this ARM architecture looks very good.

For some reason I hate the wedge shape of the Macbook Air. Never liked it.

Not the biggest issue, I admit.

The wedge is what allows it to be skinnier than your beloved glorified iPadBook

Nah, it's 0.3cm thicker, and 0.4kg heavier. That's why I don't really want to buy it.

Obviously it is more powerful.

Not like you to balk at “thicker” and “heavier”

From the reviews it seems the air is the way to go unless you're doing anything that loads the CPU for extended periods (rendering/video exports). The numbers look very good with little to no slow down with x86 applications.

The original MBA was thinner than the weak sauce MacBook at its thinnest point. FACT.

Aye the battery life sounds ridiculous from the reviews I’ve seen, fair play to Apple.
