Who is BB's vendor?Gold. Not that I wanted it, but the open box price at BB on that model (8/512) was too good to pass up, at the closest BB to my house, only 5 miles away. $1249 list, and $937 paid (less some reward $$ that I had) . Just sent the 2017 MBA trade to BB's vendor for a gift card. Apple only offered to recycle it.
Or as my wife said, we now can easily differentiate our laptops (she has silver 2019 MBA).
Hey, same setup as you with the 15" rMBP 16GB at home (used more as a desktop) and thinking of the Gold MBA M1 base (7C-8GB-256) as my work and travel laptop. How is it holding up so far and how would you compare it performance-wise with everyday tasks? Do you find the keyboard on the MBA with its tapered design being easier to type on than the rMBP at all?I got a gold one this afternoon, 8/256. I reserved it online and hadn't seen it in person. I was ready for a change from silver. The color is a little darker than I'd expected. I think I'll get used to it. And, I like using this new Air so much that I am not at all sorry I got it. I have already cleaned up my old 2013 11.6 Air, erased the drive and reinstalled the OS, and otherwise have prepared it for sale.
I saw a gold M1 MacBook Air at Best Buy the other day and I it looked very pink in person. This may have also been due to the lighting.Space Gray, but honestly I'm torn if I shouldn't cancel and order the Gold, it's kind of hard to tell how the color look in real life and I can't really go to an Apple Store these days.
If it was true Rose Gold like the MacBook from some years ago, I probably would have picked it. (I really wish there was a blue one like the iPad Air.)
I never liked silver, and I have a Space Grey MacBook Pro right now and it's fine. It's safe.
