Yea they run great.
Battery life is crazy, x86 seems to run just as fast or faster than native
Drawbacks right now are support for only two...
I wouldn’t say it’s shitty - it’s done that way because of the thinness
You CAN remove a key, clean the spot it’s in, and replace it along with the mechanism. I’ve done it.
I’ve also pulled a car apart to replace some stupid part. But Apple doesn’t do it because it’s easier and faster for them...
I upgrade when they get slow... iPad 3 in that case.
Or when they break. Someone dropped my Mini 2, I was about to get a new one anyway. Got the current iPad on slickdeals from best buy, not sure how much but it was cheap.
I loved the old Air...but this screen is a little dim, only 2 USB-C ports...
Ended up buying a 2017 Pro (non-Touchbar) for some light Mac stuff we have to do at work. Thought about the Air for a little bit though.
