New M(1)acs in da house!
Posted by: rjmacs
Date: May 20, 2021 08:47AM
Posting from my new (refurb) M1 MBA Retina 8-core GPU w/16GB/1TB! Purchased direct from Apple, subsidized by some leftover gift card credit from 2020. Added a Kensington Privacy Screen to protect the display, as my last MBP (Early 2013) ended up with a seriously splotched and uncleanable screen from years of transport with display against keyboard. The MBP had increasingly glitchy video issues, and was stuck with 8GB RAM which was cramping my style.

Household is also home to a new Mac M1ni (8GB/512GB), purchased from Costco with a generously supplied coupon from Dennis R. This replaces a 2012 Mini, also acquired via the forum, which performed admirably for several years despite some minor issues. It's exciting to have two new machines as I start the long project of combining disparate audio and photo libraries, ripping a large collection of DVDs/Blurays, and centralizing other files to the QNAP NAS.

So far, everything is copacetic! spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

Edit: big apologies to Dennis R, misidentified in my post as Dennis S. Also, apologies to Dennis S for an unsolicited mention in my post! banghead smiley Stupid memory!!!!

hmmm. i received a coupon code for $50 off a $500 costco.com purchase but i don't need anything so i trashed it and it didn't occur to me that it wasn't unique to my account. maybe it isn't.

i pulled it out of the trash. first person to PM me to ask gets it.

It was me Dennis R not Dennis S. Costco sent out $100 off $500 or more to certain people. I don’t know how they chose. I wasn’t going to use it so I offered it up on the forum and rjmacs claimed it and put it towards his new Mac Mini.

Huge apologies to Dennis R for misremembering and misidentifying him! My memory ain't what it used to be. Thanks again, Dennis R! Mea maxima culpa!
