I’m upgrading/updating my work setup and need a few tips from MacBook users
The thing is I want to buy a real powerful gaming laptop like Eluktronics but currently get it. That being said, I recommended a MacBook Air M1 to my girlfriend and she bought it — I’ve never owned MacBooks and other Mac OS devices, the same guess for the rest of Apple products.
Currently, the only thing that worries me is the size of the screen while working in Webflow — I’ve tried it and the website I tested looked quite cramped. I mean understandably so but it feels like it I buy a 13 inch screen then I’ll need to change my design habits (?) to adapt to MBA M1.
So guys what are your thoughts on this? Have you ever had problems with MBA and MacBooks in general? It’s 8gb RAM is enough or it is better to get 16gb?
Also, I will really appreciate the tips on moving from Windows to Mac OS. I did get a hang of the service when I configured the laptop for my girlfriend but I still will be glad to get even dumb tips — maybe I’ve missed something. In addition to that, what about other apps and tools for video editing, and, specifically, 3D modeling, coding, video game development, and so on. I’m asking it because I really do not understand what MacBook Pro is for, especially M1 Max
Most of my stack consists of web apps, mainly Webflow, Figma, Notion, n8n, etc. Still I love tweaking my devices and working on various stuff.
P.S: Even if I buy MBA M1 now, I will buy a gaming laptop anyway because I want to game and stream. For those who are wondering why I am not getting a PC — I do move from a place to place quite a lot (not right now) so I want to be flexible and be able to work and play videogames wherever I might be.
