$100 off the configuration I would opt for if I were getting an M1 mini.

With the way all the tests show how 8 GB works, unless I was a heavy user, Id go with the base for near 50% less.

we have base mini and 2 MBAs -- the mini runs a VPN to my wifes PC, and she zooms all day, smooth. =)

You're preaching to the choir, jdc, because I have an 8/512 M1 MacBook Air.

It's great and everything on it flies--except for running Photo Mechanic with 45 megapixel files. That has nothing to do with RAM, and everything to do with the people at Camera Bits (makers of Photo Mechanic) won't get with the program and release an M1-native version.

The only reason I would go for the 16GB is because a mini would be a replacement for my 32GB Mac Pro. Another way to put is "just because." grinning smiley

While I have an 8G/512 M1 MBA I'd be tempted by the deal because I tend to hold onto my Mac kit for awhile, and upgrading memory that can't be upgraded after purchase, seems like a good idea to me.

I could save a few bucks by opting for 256G instead of 512G storage, but $100 off and tax free as well is a price Apple can't match (nor anybody else) even with their Mil/Vet discount.

Maybe someone else will offer $100 on that configuration but there will be tax, and for me it's basically !0%.

And there is that just because factor.

But I do wonder about the M1 running external NVMe storage slower than an Intel counter part.

Still, there's the just because...





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.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

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.

And hope is a lousy defense.

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