As a matter of fact, I own an Air 11 and I love it. It's the max I use at the office, hooked to an external monitor, keyboard and... trackball - yes, I prefer it.
Over the time, its shell got bent. It's like something exploded inside and it looks egg shaped now, you can't close the lid. I have no idea why, first time it happens with a Mac. Since I use it as a desktop machine I just don't care.
Eventually I found out a 12 MacBook with i5 and 500g SSD refurbished late 2017 and I bought it. With 350€ more I could have bought a brand new MacBook air but with 128 SSD and a even if just a bit larger size and weight. So I don't know if I did it right, I guess I'm just trying it then I could return if it doesn't click with me and go with the 2020 MBA.
Thank you and have a nice Sunday.
Regarding the section I emphasized, do an internet search for swollen batteries. If that’s what’s caused your Air’s shape to become distorted you should unplug it/stop using it. It needs repair—it’s a fire hazard.
