I'm really interested in the M1's but only allowing 1 external display natively is what is holding me back. I could get a hub but that will put me another ~$300 in the hole and would decrease performance.

You could get a Mac mini with 2x display support for $599 and sell when the eventual M1X laptops come out and probably get at least $500 back for it.

I would get this, as it has all the functionality you could ever ask for, and if you need a bigger display, can use a monitor; and the battery life and performance is already fantastic! The newer model will be slightly lighter, an inch bigger and better display, more performance, etc. the price will also reflect those changes, I doubt it will be under $1500. Once you wait for it and get it, another model will be coming out with the super efficient 3-nanometer m2 with 24 hour battery, Mini-Led, and 2.5lb, etc. At this point it's been perfected and only nice features can be added, all the fundamentals are there, so I am gonna get it. Do I think the M1X or M2 Mac releasing will be better? Yes. Will I drool over the new design? Yes. Will my wallet be happy from saving hundreds? Yes. Will I feel a true difference in everyday use? Not really.

Apple typically charges a premium for SSD and ram, even when it is 3rd party OEM "off the shelf" components. In this case, apple makes the ram and the ram, CPU, and GPU are all integrated into one chip. Advantages? You don't need as much ram, you remove bottlenecks, the system can steal resources from itself to perform better or use less battery. Overall a brilliant and innovative design. Plus Apple controls more of their supply chain, so their net margins and profits are higher. The downsides? Everything becomes a single point of failure. So it your ram or GPU goes bad (or one core on your CPU) causing your mac to stop working, the whole thing is dead and you have to go to Apple to fix it. No parts replacements, no upgrades. You are 100% "stuck" with your purchase 5 years later. So you end up having to overpay now for what you need later. In my case I so music stuff, and the big music libraries, samplers, plugins, and romplers need 16gb-32gb ram today and certainly 32gb in a few years, so I am stuck waiting for new M1x or M2 mac/macpro/macmini and have to buy 2-4tb SSD (1-2tb is Ok for today, but I will need larger in 2-3 years). So I get to buy a $3000 mac when it would be far better to buy a $1500 mac today and add ram/ssd in 2 years as prices fall. Good old Apple. Frown

Must have 16GB. Ended up getting one from Adorama with no tax and a discount code from Apple Insiders or somewhere.

I have a 2014 model with MagSafe and the SD reader. I was definitely happy to read that this year's new models are expected to bring these back. The rumors also expect a return of HDMI. And perhaps Mini-LED, though that seems less certain.

All in all, worth it for me to wait. Though it sounds like the Touch Bar might be going away.

The specs on this aren't that different from the MacBook Air. Are the Touch Bar and the extra ports and the slight performance/battery bumps worth the extra $200 or is there something else I'm missing?

I'd rather paying more to not have the Touch Bar.
That's why I got MBA M1 instead of MBP (and save some money).
Happy to see MBP w/o Touch Bar on new 14/16 models.
