I bought an Air M1 13.3" for work and other stuffs. Alsoi sold my gaming laptop as I wasn t playing that much on it in the last couple of years and the battery sucked hard on that one. I kept my gaming PC for anything else, but for travel and work I switched to M1 Air for portability, battery life and processor.

Longtime PC user and engineer, laptop broke yesterday and I immediately went out and picked up the 14" Pro. Held off on Mac for a long time because while there build quality has always been second to none their performance suffered. With Apple silicone this is no longer the case, and for the first time I can buy a Mac safe in the knowledge that I am not being outperformed by similarly classed laptops.

You say you have 32GB for video editing, then announce M1 somehow makes less memory betterer, then talk about 8GB for day to day usage.. which is what works on any other system... sounds like just talking in circles praising Apple.. it goes along with the self pinned comment about longitme PC users switching.. just plowing forward trying to look smart lol

On the topic of not waiting for the next chip, lets say M2: What do you do if you order one of the new Macs now, but it won't even be delivered until February (current m1 max wait times)? I guess order one now, and when it ships, just lean on the return policy? lol $4k is a lot to drop just to find out a new chip has replaced it like a month after yours arrives

The "8 GBs is enough" argument ignores that macOS works well on this machines taking advantage of the SSDs speeds… and it's a soldered SSD, so you can't just swap it when it ultimately fail.

Can you do a test where you render out an animation in Blender and see how many frames are completed before each battery dies? I feel all the battery comparison tests in these YouTube videos fail to take into account how much productivity comes out the end of the pipe, as if all we are trying to do is drain batteries with no concern for the output. If a battery lasts 3 hours but outputs 2x the widgets, isn't that better than a 5-hour battery at 1x widgets?

Apple used to be a balance of form and function. Then they started focusing too much on form. Hopefully this means they are returning to being balanced.

What I could do with Macbook? Browse the web, watch video, Microsoft Office and Video editing?? thats all.. I am not a youtuber and apart from video editing Macbooks are not used for any complex processing. Apple computers and tablets are just a waste of hardware for so little tasks.. (and waste of your money..).. and even iOS developers wouldnt buy Apple hardware if Apple was not pushing for it..

My only gripe about going with the lower RAM options would be that the tradeoff is having the SSD being used for swap quite a bit and down the line that is going to wear them out faster if you're doing heavy workloads constantly. Given the specs on the SSDs I'd say the chances of that happening before that macbook is replaced is unlikely, but it is something to think about if you're doing heavy work.

Hi @Dave2D great video-best I've seen so far and I've been doing a lot of reading up to try and figure out what to buy as my 2011 16gb MacBook Pro just died and I'm considering swapping my PC desktop for a 16" laptop. Would be interested to hear your thoughts on which spec best suits Vectorworks/SketchUp/Photoshop type use. I had settled on M1 Pro with 10 cores/24 and 32gb but the nice person at the Apple store hit me with "M1 Max/32" for 14" and external screen for future proofing and better portability. That's expensive and contradicts what I'm seeing elsewhere. So, your opinion on spec for light architecture/3D work would be most appreciated! Thanks

I upgraded my first gen M1 macbook air to 16gb of RAM. Definitely a mistake in hindsight. I barely ever use 3gb day to day, and that's with 20+ chrome windows open, all with multiple tabs (granted I do use a suspender chrome plugin to save memory).

@Lian Yu I'm also using The Marvelous Suspender chrome extension to put stale tabs into sleep. But yes, the overall memory efficiency of this laptop is amazing. Wish I'd upgraded the disk space instead if I were gonna drop that extra 200 or whatever is was.

I agree so much with you. Sure, the new stuff looks amazing (I truly want them just because they look so amazing), but if you need to do stuff, just get what you need already. You can wait three years and get the M5, that will probably be even better than the current M2 😊

TSMC (Taiwanese) silicon. Just as Tensor aint Google silicon. Its Samsung. Just as all these apple products aint Apple who is making them. It's Taiwanese Quanta who makes them, and they (Quanta) do make gorgeous gear, not least alubased product.. My 2 Porsche Books,, is a coaling between 4 players .. Microsoft, Wacom, Porsche Design, and Quanta and Porsche did the same Apple approach.. outsource it to Quanta. but Quanta computing does make a shltload of many products..even though vendors like Apple aint glad to inform it, who in reality are in fact making certain apple products.

So, I’m a lifelong pc user who’s considering the purchase of a MacBook. I’m so undecided on whether I should go for the Air or the 13-inch Pro. One decisive factor is the vents. I noticed that MacBooks have them on both sides, rather than at the bottom like pretty much every other laptop today. Does their position allow a MacBook to be placed on a soft surface, like the lap, the couch or even a blanket? Would that hinder good airflow and increase dust formation? Do fans spin at all on the 13-inch pro? I’d really love to be able to use it virtually anywhere without having to carry around a portable table or a bed desk. So, my question is for you Apple users. What would you advise? I’m a translator and would use virtualization to run a CAT tool only available for Windows, so 16 gigs is a must. Thank you.

No offense, but 8gb is like OSX plus a single safari tab ... After that you're already starting to hit swap. Doesn't matter if you're only browsing web and doing mails, if this is a machine you're using all day - go with 16gb ram.

On that last point, I think a good barometer is, if you are sweating if you should pick something up now or wait for a better one down the line, that likely means you don't actually need it right now anyway. Don't buy it. When the new one comes out do the same exercise. Do you really need it? If you need it, buy it like Dave says. It's ok to want to buy it, but be honest with yourself.
