Yes, assuming your System software is relatively up-to-date (10.15.7 or newer). Your Air can go up to Monterey so you should be good there. That being said, your Air has a maximum memory of 8GB, which is the minimum required to run CC, so you might have some performance issues if working on large files. You will need some decent disk space for scratch disk use as well, so if your drive is pretty full, again, you will have performance issues.

Hello @Richard24570748g5eu, Thanks for reaching out. As pointed out by Brad, your system should be able to run Illustrator. However, you might run into issues due to low system memory (RAM) or available space on the hard drive for Scratch Disk. Kindly update this thread if you need further assistance. Thanks, Anubhav Note: Marking correct for visibility.

You can review the minimum system requirements here:

It all depends on your specific MB air build, graphics card, RAM, and OS.

It has to do with more than just VRAM, the specific graphics card, HD space, installed RAM, etc. all factor into this.

Copy any paste your Mac System info in a reply.
