MacBook Air and iMac

Apple just announced a completely new iMac series with the new M1 chip. At work we recently got a new MacBook Air with the M1 chip (for debugging purposes).

As far as I can tell, the new generation of CPUs designed by Apple seem to be really high performance once. I think even the new iPad Pro’s now go with the M1.

What Apple is doing is almost unique now, they are trying to merge all platforms (phone, tablet, Laptop and PC) together. One CPU to rule them all. I think it is a pretty risky move, but considering the history of Apple, it isn’t their first one.

As I’ve got a new iPad Air last year (including the Pencil and the Keyboard), I’m thinking about sell my MacBook Air from 2019 (or 2018, I don’t remember) and getting the new iMac.

95% of the time I’m using it, I’m using it at home in my office, connected to a 27 inch full HD monitor. When I’m on the road I’m having my iPad with me.

Although there are some things I can’t do on it (yet), I think I don’t need the MacBook anymore. Maybe it is time to get rid of it and buy a iMac?
My 27" iMac from late 2015 has been a solid computer for me. While the shiny new iMacs look great, I think I will keep my iMac. I also like the flexibility the MacBook gives me. After spending 10 hours sitting at the computer for work, it's a tall order to then sit in front of the iMac. I'd rather chill out on the couch or sit outside with the MacBook. Now the iPad Pro with the new screen looks marvelous...

 It's not that I can just buy it right away, but if I sell my MacBook beforehand, I would have almost all cash already.
