The Air was never sold as a powerful laptop but it was pocket friendly to students who were told to buy a Mac for doing their graphic design work. It makes a whole lot of sense to have it "as-light-and-thin" as an iPad as that sells to students and people doing light computing on the go. (light in all senses) Apple are going to have a hard time convincing discerning power users to buy an Intel Macbook right now - those of us old enough know that in 2 years you will be high and dry on an unsupported version of the OS or worse still - the power Apps you use won't be updated for Intel Apples anymore. The other challenge is Apple will be busy telling their hardcore (not the Windows users) buyers the amazing things that the A12z or A13 can do but also saying "here's an Intel Macbook for you in the meanwhile..." There's a Pandemic going on, people have been furloughed or lost their jobs / business will be down for a while so that spare cash to throw at an interim Intel Macbook isn't going to fly. I'm hearing from more and more Developers that they are not buying an Intel in this time - the new ARM Macbooks will be where they spend in a year or so. I eventually paid for Photo and Designer while they had the 50% price offer but I am finding it hard - everytime I try something I keep thinking how I would do it in Photoshop. For me - I can see the sense in solo artists / designers dropping Adobe as the price tag (read yearly subscription) takes a huge amount out of your yearly salary. Big studios however swapping large .psd files between desks will probably remain tied to Adobe. I'd like to see Affinity do a fourth App with video and animation with the Apps working with each other across formats - then I would drop Adobe like a hot potato.
