Hi all

Lifetime windows user decided to switch to Apple here. Been searching for a laptop for 3 months and decided to get the MBA M1.

However the Bluetooth/wifi issues has been quite well known in the MBA M1, it seems that people still have issues with it even after updating to big sur 11.2.

Is this as common as it seems or should I not worry and just go ahead and buy it? I mean, if I do have the issue, I can always return it/exchange it at the store right?

Haven't used Bluetooth so couldn't say regarding this. I haven't had any WIFI issues. But absolutely love the machine, coming from a macbook air mid 2011 model.

Same here. Don't use Bluetooth, but have no idea what the WIFI issue is, as mine has worked flawlessly.

My only wifi issue was remedied by switching to the 5GHz network on my router. No problems since then.
