New Macbook is enough for Ionic development?

Hi all,

I love to go hiking and always carry a laptop.
I’ve been carrying Macbook Pro which is over 2kg.
During my latest long trekking, I really wanted to throw away it.
So I’m considering lighter one. New Mackbook or Mackbook Air.

I wonder New Macbook is not bad for Ionic developers.
Do you think it is bad choice?
It would be slow for compile type developments?
