Up until last summer, I had used a 2012 MacBook pro as my daily driver, but with Battle for Azeroth, began showing its age in slowdowns and overheating to the point that I couldn’t keep it on my lap. Because of my finances, I sold it and purchased an HP Chromebook which is now showing issues of its own. I absolutely hate Windows 10 to the point that I don’t even use my aging Alienware which still runs WoW great 5 years later.
Now I’m interested in getting a new MacBook, but I’m hung on which one I should get. I’m stuck between the MacBook Air with the 10th gen i7 upgrade, or the MacBook Pro base model with the 8th gen i5. For $50 less, the Air with the 10th gen i7 seems like a no-brainer, but I know the Air (despite its name) also has less efficient cooling than the Pro, so I was hoping somebody here might be able to offer their opinion as to which might be a better pick. Thanks!
