It's heavy for a MBA, similar weight to MBP.
I switched from MBPTB13 to MB12 (both 16GB RAM) due to the weight, very noticeable when carry whole day.
For me, I am opposite. I used the macbook 12-inch 2016 model for a year then I switched to MacBook Pro TB 16GB ram model.
I dun mind to trade a bit more weight for better power and bigger screen of MacBook Pro 13-inch. The MacBook Pro 13-inch is in fact lighter and slimmer than 2015 model. After one year of use, the 12-inch macbook to me the scene is too small.
Macbook 12-inch is very portable to carry around, this is no doubt, but processing power wise is still disappointing. 16gb is an overkilled for 12-inch macbook given its processing power.
In fact, 16gb is even overkilled for my 13-inch MBP TB. If giving a choice, I may choose 8gb ram instead and save the money for next upgrade.
But if the processor is min 4 cores like MacBook Pro 2018, it will help if there is 16gb ram.
The MacBook Air is in a weird position now giving its price. The starting price of it for 256gb storage option is not far from MacBook Pro 13-inch. Not to forget that MacBook Pro 13-inch has more powerful processor, better screen, touch bar, more USB-c ports. MOST importantly the weight it not far away from macbook 13-inch.
