I put a SSD and 16GBs of RAM in my 2012 Macbook Pro but it's time to let it go. Battery life is terrible on it, it's heavy and Big Sur is not taking it along with the ride.

The idea of a powerful, fan-less Air definitely has my attention, but their vague ass claims about how much faster this processor is looks wild sus.

If the new Air winds up being bullshit them I'm probably gonna buy the Lemur 14 and go all in with PopOS!/Linux

it is intriguing that they might have hit on something but then again I bought the first iPad sooo I don't believe the entire hype and know how they'll drop a beast with a totally different form factor in a less than half a year.

It's promising that Adobe already has native apps for Lightroom and PS, which means Premiere and After Effects (hopefully) are right behind them.

Not worried too hard about compatibility because the main app I need is confirmed native.

I am lowkey worried about my beloved OpenEmu...the devs haven’t said anything about the switch. But it’s legit the only concern I have.

My current MBP is seven years old with a dual core i5. It still runs fine, but the battery is long in the tooth. I am NOT worried about the M1 Macbook out performing it in every way. Like my iPhone clearly kicks its ass.

You know it's drama, but it sound real good.

Why only 1 chip in these, if it's low power and doesn't need cooling then put 2 chips in and rock this shit.

Going to have to wait for reviews and actual user feedback.

Because a superfast single threaded Mac is fine for a lot of stuff, but having that Windows compatibility really helped for work things.

And multithreaded apps seems to take a pretty significant hit on these first ones in benchmarks.

The speed, even for a first gen, is seemingly impressive. The fact that everyone keeps saying that you can do video production on the base level Air sounds amazing. I don't really get the purpose of the base level Pro though at this point but the Air and Mini look pretty dope.

the only thing with the Air is that it seems it's worth it to jump up to the one with the 8 cores. I've never seen a jump like this in prolly 25 years honestly.

the only thing I've heard is that the base level Air has 7 cores and no fan but the midlevel with 16 is comparable. Aren't the graphics on the SOC?

Single threaded performance is > than any other Mac EVER.

Multi-thread is middle of pack.

Anything bad that I can find:
2 ports is a bummer - but they are USB 4 - which means - I have no idea what that means.

Windows compatibility/boot camp is gone.

The 16GB ones are in short supply.

I’m not doing any benchmarks, but it flies through whatever I throw at it and I haven’t heard the fans once and it’s cold to the touch.

Haven’t encountered any compatibility issues either. When you open up an Intel app, it just has you download Rosetta and then you’re good to go.

I’m not on a clean install either. I migrated 150 gigs of data from my previous Mac. I’ll let y’all know if I encounter any issues, but as far as I can tell these things perform as promised.

In response to Reply # 22


  

          

If you’re in need of an upgrade like I was, go ahead and cop. There’s nothing concerning and you’ll get a major performance and battery boost.

But if you can hold out a year or two? I probably will, because you’ll be able to cop a model refresh and probably an even more powerful chip.

I think I'm gonna cop the 16" M1 update.

In the meantime I'm copping AAPL. I've never seen laptop reviews this good.

27. "The Youtube "reviewers" are RIDIC"
In response to Reply # 0


          

This is what they do:

Day 1: They show the box, can't talk about it.
Day 2: unboxing but don't turn it on.
Day 3: Turn it on.
Day 4: Benchmarks
Day 4: Review it - with an emphasis on whatever janky ass video workflow they use to make Youtube videos.
Day 5: Review it again while comparing it another model.
Day 6: More benchmarks
Day 7: The "updated" 1 week review
Day 8: Should you throw away your old Mac RIGHT NOW??

Some of these assholes are like "The base model $99 Macbook Air with 8GB ram struggled to export my Red 8K footage from DaVinci when I had 16 color grades applied while I also used photoshop and watched 8k Youtube videos." <-I'm not joking, one asshole did that that "review."

These new machines seem to be KICK ASS for everyone EXCEPT people doing professional audio and video with defined workflows. Most of those people have $3k MacBook's at least, and many have $15k Mac pro's and they're simply not capable of reviewing the product from a "human being" stand point.

I don't need a Mac right now, but these seem very sweet for the price.

And it makes sense to buy only when you can't stand your old tech.

Buuuuut I'm still looking at a dedicated mac mini for the studio. These reviews are just too good.
