Question MacBook Air 2020 vs MacBook Pro 2020

Sep 1, 2020
Hello, i was going to buy a MacBook Air 2020 with i5 10th Generation and 16GB of RAM. After watching plenty of reviews my mind changed and i thought about buying a MacBook Pro with i5 8th Generation and 8GB of DDR3 RAM. I'm mainly gonna use it for Programming, Browsing and just chatting. Many people said the Air is constantly at 100 Degrees even with not doing heavy things, so i looked up the MacBook Pro and here the Model i saw is only ~150EUR more expensive. But now my question is,
Is the heating of the Air really that bad? And should i pick up the Pro with only 8GB of DDR3 RAM and an older Intel Generation instead of the Air with newer Intel and double size of DDR4 RAM?
