8 core CPU, 7 core GPU.
07-29-2021 at 10:01 AM
1 core is disabled so they could charge more for the Pro.
07-29-2021 at 10:01 AM
The 256GB model for Macbook Air M1 has one core less than the 512GB model Air and the Mac M1 Pros. This is due to a practice called binning. Google it for more details.

For editing videos, it's probably better than any windows laptop under $3000.

You definitely can edit videos on this, plenty of you tubers showing you it has no problems doing it.

Depends on what you need it for. But for most people, yes.

spectacular

specs are deceiving, I would not compare it directly with windows because the chip on this thing is much more efficient. full operating system, tablet like battery life

Plays Starcraft II and Diablo 3 flawlessly, albeit at lower quality. I play 2560x1440 at low quality, medium textures, for Starcraft II, and it works great. At a lower resolution I suspect one could bump up the quality a bit.

It screams for video/photo editing.

Diablo 2

No, everything is soldered. You won't be able to change anything.

This is a good price but don't forget about the free Airpods deal from Apple. Works out to about the same discount but if you just need the computer, this is solid.

Still more than a month away from the next Apple event and price already dropping multiple times. Nice.

How do you apply the student deal??
Google it. It's fairly easy but google explains it better. Basically have to sign up within Best Buy for student deals (no verification necessary).

Rather have $250 off $999 ($749) at Best Buy than $999 + free air pods from Apple.
