it definitely can but the 2021 model is likely to be a bit better. If you're going to use Adobe apps with any regularity, probably worth the extra money for the upgraded GPU.

That said, I have a 2018 i5 MacBook Air with 16GB RAM which is considerably worse than this one, use it like 6 hours per day, and run Photoshop and Illustrator on it. It works fine.

M1 Air will run Photoshop and Illustrator perfectly while being much more portable than a Pro.

Maybe if the Best Buy you go to us within a reasonable distance of a MicroCenter

So the computer/Mac runs perfectly fine and does exactly what it was intended to do. Just so I understand your position because I'm looking for constructive feedback as more than likely I'm going to buy one of these. Unfortunately it sounds like you bought the wrong laptop for your intended use case.

Costco is only $20 more, but if you have the Costco credit card you'll get 4% back (2% card 2% executive) plus double the warranty. Costco's deal is better but not as solid as the $799 price a few months ago.

I got mine a month ago for $780 by price matching the microcenter deal. It's a nice laptop. Very well made and quick. Don't believe the 18 hour battery life though lol

I grabbed one for my mom, but at Costco. $849 but 90 day return policy, CB and extra year warranty are well worth $20.

Can any Air run Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, or am I at a minimum having to get a Macbook Pro?
