But only 8GB of RAM ?
Yeah, I never see the 16GB RAM models on sale, but maybe I missed it. 16GB RAM + 512GB SSD is minimum spec I'd want in a MacBook Air.

Anyone know how these M1 Macbooks perform with Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Photoshop?
They cache the hell out of the SSD, get the 16GB version.

What are you people doing with your MBAs?

Fourier transforms in Mathematica?

My 2012 MBP with a failed upper RAM slot (so limited to 8GB total) still does just fine for any online work (including that resource hog Zoom) plus office applications (MS Office, Libre Office, etc.) though I'm sure switching to a SSD helped.

With Apple's SOC (hope I got that abbreviation right) it is. I've got an M1 Mac Mini at home and M1 MBA at work, both with 8 GB RAM. I'm not a power user, but have never noticed a RAM related slow down.
RAM can no longer be upgraded and most people buy computers expecting to hold on to them for 6-10 years. They configure their purchase for what they WILL need in 6-10 years. They do not buy what is good enough for now but will almost certainly be inadequate later. Do you really expect 8 GB that can’t be updated and with no speed issues now to be just hunky dorie 4-6 years out? I’m certainly don’t and that’s not even taking into account the increased likelihood of SSD failures that will be a consequence of the OS compensating for inadequate RAM by physically assaulting the SSD. That extra $200 for 16GB future proofs my purchase now. It’s insurance against needing to buy a whole new computer in 3-4 years for 4-6 times the cost of an additional 8GB of RAM in the present.
