I change a MacBook Pro M1 for a MacBook Air M2 and this happens

On the website of La Manzana Mordida Normally we don’t carry out messages like this so personally, but my humble experience may help other users make a better purchase decision. The first thing you need to know is the specs of both teams, as it’s an essential part of putting my user experience into context.

On your side, my MacBook Pro has the M1 chip, 16 GB RAM and 512 GB SSD storagewhile the MacBook Air is the most basic model that you can buy in the Apple Store as well as the rest of the stores that sell it, that’s why it has the M2 chip with 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD. What you also need to know, of course, is what I use my computer for, primarily for all the tasks that we perform here in La Manzana Mordida, both in the coordination as in the part of to compose. Second, for anything to do with the creation of audiovisual contentboth for my personal projects on YouTube and Podcast as well as for other companies and third parties using apps such as Final Cut Pro, Lightroom or Photoshop.

The MacBook Air M2 is good, but not so good

Focusing on the first part of my work, i.e. the coordination and writing here at La Manzana Mordida, the reality is that the experience the MacBook Air has given me is practically unbeatablespeed, performance and fluidity abound with applications such as Safari, iA Writer, and even Photoshop or Photoscape.

Anyway, in the video editing section the experience is twisted. For making simple videos like 1-minute reels with a single layer, the Apple computer has clearly been more than enough, as the power requirement is not very large. Now when editing long, multi-layered 4K videos using various means, has been when the limitations of this computer were seen. Some obvious limitations given the configuration of the specifications. The M2 chip is a beast, but you’ll inevitably need a computer with more RAM and more internal storage for some more demanding tasks.
