    From what you mentioned about your computer use habits...and what you said about it being "useable" for 8-10 years...I think a new or newish MacBook Air will last you 8-10 years. I personally use 2...

    I don't think the norm in 10 years will be 8GB of RAM. 8GB of RAM is the norm now. Thus for someone purchasing a new computer now...and intending on using it for 8-10 years...16GB of RAM would be a...

    I'm basing my 16GB RAM recommendation on what might be the norm 8-10 years from now...not what the norm is in 2020.

    Right now I would always recommend that someone purchasing a new Apple...

    If the OP intends on keeping it for 8-10 years...I would consider the 16GB of RAM almost a mandatory upgrade!:)

    I think we both know there is a small subset of users that are perfectly ok using a computer for a very long time (8-10+ years). If we consider 100% of all Apple computer users...a large percentage...

    This is true...and I completely agree.:) But as mentioned...this 12 year old iMac running Snow Leopard...is kind of a dedicated purpose machine for running legacy PowerPC software. And as...

    I think Ashwin was throwing out the possibility that if we gave the OP feedback that a 2020 MBA i3...would not last 8-10 years (fast & snappy)...and if the OP then decided to purchase something else...

    This may or may not work. Firstly assuming the OS installed on the 2010 MBP is compatible with the 2009 MacBook Pro. Secondly...sometimes the macOS installed on a specific model Apple computer can...

    Key statement here is "heavily used"...definitely depends what heavily used means.

    As far as not powering on...please clarify?:

    * Are we talking power on via the power buttom (cold boot)?

    Will a 2020 MacBook Air be useable for some computing tasks 8-10 years from now...probably. But will it be "fast & snappy" for basic tasks...probably not. Kind of like asking the same question back...
