M1 MacBook Air for on-the-go asset creation?

I have an HP Omen 17 (12700H and 3070ti), but don’t feel like lugging a giant desktop-replacement with 2+ lb power adapter. I’ve been thinking about getting something more portable so I can make and test assets (NPCs, AI, interactive objects, etc.) on-the-go, while doing the heavy work on the Omen. If I’m just loading a few assets into the editor at once (e.g. the player character, an enemy or two, and super low poly terrain) and play-testing the scenario, would an M1 MacBook Air be sufficient? If so, would assets made on it be immediately compatible with the Windows 11 UE5.1 build?
