M1 Fever

I have to admit my resistance to the new M1 Macs is eroding quickly. Between the universally positive reviews from both reviewers and customers alike, I’m struggling to stay M1 clean. I have my eye on a Mac mini, but I think I would also enjoy a fanless MacBook Air or a MacBook Pro that has all day battery life.

It’s not that I need one of these computers. I have a fairly recent mini that I quite like. I really don’t need to upgrade. Yet, I’m being pulled into upgrading like a moth to a flame, or Guy Fieri to a diner. I’ve seen the mini for as low as $599 US at more than one place, and these sales are making things worse. Twice as fast and off the charts efficient is a combination that’s hard to resist. Add in sale pricing and I’m in serious trouble. 

Do any of you have one of these new M1 Macs? If so, please leave a comment below. I’m interested in your opinions on these new machines. 

In the meantime I’m going to keep resisting. For now.

    Resistance is futile. I have a bare bones MBA and it is much faster than my previous MBP, as well as having longer battery life and almost never even getting warm.

    Got my wife a tricked-out M1 MBA and she loves it. Work just got me a bare-bones M1 MBA and I love it. Very fast, very quiet. I will probably be getting one of the new Apple Silicon iMacs when they are released. Take the plunge!

    In the end I caved and purchased an M1 Mac mini. Just got it, but so far, so fast. I think I’m going to enjoy it immensely.

    What does tricked out mean, exactly? Big hard drive and tons of memory? If so, I envy her. I seriously considered an Air but I ended up with a mini. I’m happy so far.
