Just ordered an M1 MBA

Base $799 education model, there is a small discount if you buy in a 5 pack that brings it down a little bit more. Can't wait to see how this thing performs compared to the current fleet of 2018 MacBook Airs.

I'm hopeful that it works well and can greatly decrease costs and increase device availability.

I started to order one yesterday but they are not allowing F&F discounts yet for Apple employees and my wife already used her Ed discount this year on a laptop. Between the discount, Apple Card 3% and possibly trading in my current MBA, I can get the cost down to about $740 for the 512K 7 core model, which will more than meet my needs.

I can be patient...

Just 1 for now for testing, but needed the 5 pack price for budgetary reasons. This will be a test for both Big Sur, which is the only OS that will run on these, and the devices themselves. Right now I have all my fleet on Mojave. Going to straight up skip Catalina.

I've been looking at the 13" ASi MBA, and think a 256/16 is going to be my next 'Book.

I'm looking forward to some reviews.

What site had the two drop down menus that let one select and compare different Macs' performance?

I don't see it at barefeats or xlr8yourmac.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Wonder how much the extra memory actually costs Apple...raise the price by $100 & make 16GB standard?
