Behind you
Must. Hold. Out.

waiting for the next MBP or MBA this September with the 14” redesign and MagSafe port. My 2013 MBP still chugging along but starting to show its age. Hope Amazon discounts that model and offers 1 TB of SSD storage. Amazon credit card makes deal even sweeter with 5% off.

Can't wait until we see laptops designed around the new chip. I'm hoping they bring back something small, like 11" or even smaller. Ideally with a 360 hinge and touchscreen.

Combine an 11" screen with a sensible non crammed keyboard and you end up with big bezels.

The 12" rMB was as small as it got, and even that would be at 12.5" with 2021 bezels.

Is it still wearing out the SSD super fast? No thanks. I’ll pass.
You would have to write something along the lines of 500GB per day, every day, for 5 years in order to wear out the drive.

Seems to have been fixed in the current updated. Didn’t happen on all systems anyway and it’s not like it was truly wearing out the SSDs — more of an overblown concern because of how much extra paging or continuous writing was happening on some systems.

That said, the initial offering of the M1 Air and MBP13 are just to get these chips out in the wild. Next revision of these systems will be worth waiting for, IMO. I would definitely wait if I didn’t need it now.

This initial M1 MBP looks to have been a mistake by Apple.

It’s incredible to see how many times it has been on sale

Spec’d too similarly to the M1 MBA

Guys, there's a reason only specific configurations of MBA and MBP are being discounted an extra $50 every week, look for the pattern.

Hint, hint: 8GB RAM.

Do what you want with this information.

I'm thinking about transitioning from a Windows to a Mac, so I have been looking at the Pros a lot lately. I'm a little surprised how small the 13 in really is, as I went to Costco today and saw one up close. I will connect it to a monitor so maybe Size isn't an issue. I'm not really sure on the whole 8 Ram vs. 16 Ram though. This is a very tempting deal, however.
