The air doesn't have a fan and a touch bar. Performance wise there is no difference. Maybe some performance throttling if laptop is too hot but I heard m1 chip has very low heat emission.

I have been back and forth. Apple and Costco- Apple better deal? Do you feel 8gb is good? Or should you go with 16gb

Costco adds a 2nd year to the mfgr's warranty for free. Maybe Amazon does too, but I wouldn't know.

Air:
- No fan <= No throttling for certain tasks like Final Cut exports, but overall doesn't make a noticeable difference.
- No TouchBar <= I believe that's an upside, not a downside
- 400 nits of brightness (vs. 500 for the Pro) <= this makes a difference if you'll frequently be using it outdoors

Wish it had 16GB RAM. I've been holding out for a deal with 16GB/512GB.

16GB is a world of difference. I got the bouncing ball all the time on 8GB. Computer is a dream on 16GB.

Does the warranty extend to 3 years if you use the Costco credit card?

If you buy with the Costoc Anywhere Visa by Citi you get a totl of 4yrs "Costco Anywhere Visa® Cards by Citi
with Extended Warranty

In addition to your Costco Concierge Warranty, if you make your purchase with your Costco Anywhere Visa Card, Costco Anywhere Visa Business Card or Costco credit card reward certificate, Citi will extend your manufacturer's warranty for an additional 2 years. Coverage begins when the manufacturer's warranty, or an extended warranty you purchased, expires."

Wow, thanks. It might be worth it just for that instead of getting it through Apple EDU and the free Airpods.

Airpods are $99 right now at Costco. And another perk I found is that headphones do NOT fall into Costco's 90 day return policy.(https://customerservice.costco.co...related/1)

So yea *wink *wink Smilie

I would recommend to take model with 16Gb ram, I think no big matter pro or air
with 8gb you can't open too many browser tabs, it run out of memory (ram)
