Not true anymore?
04-21-2021 at 08:58 AM
This is not true. All current generation Apple Silicon is based off the M1 chip. Besides different SKUs for either an 7-core or 8-core graphical count, you are getting the same chip for Apple Silicon based devices for configurations of Mac mini, Macbook Air, 13" Macbook Pro, and now the 24" imac.

There are still Intel-based configurations for those systems but the designation for Apple Silicon will be that of "M1"

There are rumors for a higher powered Apple Silicon chip which may find its way into the larger Macbook Pro and Imac models, but neither has that been confirmed nor the timing of those devices. (Maybe summer, more than likely - fall timeframe)

so it's basically like buying it tax-free.... (for those whose states/cities charge about 10% sales tax....Chicago or some California cities, for example)

oh man... what happened to the good old days? Back when I ordered my last Macbook from Amazon, they didn't charge sales tax to my state. Frown

You can do in warehouse pickup. It's nice having a store in tax free NH only 25 minutes away.

When you order it online, don't they use your billing address to calculate tax, regardless of where it's picked up or delivered?

While I'll generally agree with both of you for long term use (5+ years), Mac OS 11 isn't windows and the ARM architecture for M1 uses a hybrid HBM design. Memory management is significantly different and I haven't seen the OS swap once since taking delivery of a base MBA a couple weeks ago (paid $900 + tax).

I was able to get a little under 10 years out of my late 2011 MBP (still works) with an aftermarket 8GB memory upgrade in 2013. Computer finally started bogging down around 2018, but I believe this is more or less due to the dual core Sandybridge i5 showing its age with modern programs and browsers...but still... a much better experience than an up to date windows or linux distro with the same level of hardware.

My new MBA M1 uses more memory resources (1GB~ higher) than my old MBP on high sierra, but the older intel based system with same 8 GB spec would swap a lot more funny enough. Not really apples to oranges, but I can see 16GB being valid for rendering work and long term 5+ year use cases.

I only went with the base model because I've never been let down from a value aspect (granted I was able to actually upgrade my last PC). I'm fairly confident we've hit a bubble in terms of hardware manufacturers stagnating progression.

If the NVME was swappable (strongly think it should be), I would have spent the extra $200 on a 16GB memory upgrade I think. Wouldn't have to worry bout SSD write/read cycles long term.

Usually it's based on shipping address.

No, just picked up a DJI drone last week doing that. It's always based on where the purchaser takes receipt of the item.

thinking about of pulling the trigger for an M1 Macbook Pro, but the only concern I have with M1 is softwares I need.

Does Docker run well on M1 chip?

Pricing is good, for the regular student, 8gb is fine. For the creative and more: 16gb should be standard!
