The Macbook with M1 chip is... different. Time to think a little different about laptops.

  • The only catch with this new hardware is a showstopper in some very specific situations. For software engineers relying on virtualization and technology like Docker, this new M1 chip is not compatible with that (yet). More specifically, you can't run X86/AMD64 virtuals. This means you also cannot run Windows with Parralels or Boot Camp on this new M1 hardware as well, since Windows doesn't really have great support for ARM. If you are relying on this and you're looking for a new laptop then the Intel Macbooks are for now still the better choice.

  • Apple directs their specifications towards a consumer friendly way, they don’t use milliamps because a normal consumer won’t be able to translate that into their time using the computer

  • Make no mistake: You cannot compare ARM clock speed directly with x86 at all. It‘s just a completely different architecture coming with completely different hardware level features.

Sad to say I’ve heard people say that in full sincerity before and I kept flip flopping between whether I thought it was serious or not. If it is- disregard my comment entirely haha

    • Because practically nobody uses them anymore lol. I built a desktop in 2016 without a disk drive and have not once been like “damn I wish I’d have spent the money on that” Besides, if you’re in the niche category of people who does need one, you can buy external USB plug n play drives pretty cheaply. But again, if you’re in the market for this specific laptop for whatever reason I can’t imagine you’d care about such a thing.

  • Aloha. 😊 I have something off-topic here. ✌ I'm really sorry, I'm just out of options & desperate. 😢 Can I get some help? I finally have a job opportunity that's going to start in a few days (Jan2021). But can't start yet because my laptop is broken. 💔 I've been looking forward for this job since life has been crazy when the pandemic started. I stumbled a lot of times & was able to get up somehow. But fate seems to be so fond playing with me. I need to earn for me & my family. Got bills that are due & mouths to feed. 😢 Sold my childhood toys & stuff already, to survive 2020, & don't know what else to offer. Can't even start a business again because I am not well-equipped. I badly need help. 😭 I can't take my life that easily too because I have lives that depend on me. I'm so lost. So tired. So hopeless. If you're financially blessed, please, I could really use some help right now. I just need a laptop for work or get my old one working. I can't afford one or get the old one fixed. 😭 Or if you have a spare laptop? This would mean soooo much to me & my family. 🙏🙏🙏 P.S. Please dont be mean to me. I'm too soft & vulnerable these days. 😳😳😳

  • Hey! I'm trying to decide which of these Macbooks would be best for me, the Air or Pro. I use photoshop to design things like event flyers, cd covers, social media images etc. And also use a software called Movavi to edit videos. Nothing too fancy, mainly trimming, pasting and adding various video clips and audio files together to create videos that are roughly 45 mins to an hour long. Can the Air handle this easy or should I get the pro?

  • Hi there and thank you for your great reviews. I am needing a laptop to replace my 21in iMac. I want to run PS and LR to edit multiple exposure images, so whilst not huge and not video, I need a lot of memory to cope. I’d rather get a 13in for convenience, as it will be my main computer, but should a I go with the larger 16in? Photography only. But large images, big file sizes. What do you think? I’d be so grateful for your input. Dominique
