Not too familiar with this company but after some searches seems legit. Please tell me otherwise. This is the lowest price I've ever seen this M1 Mac Mini.

8. Only the MBA base model has the 7 core, something I only realized recently when I looked up the stock mini configs on the Apple website.

I rather get it from Costco for a bit more. Costco Is easier to deal with for any issues or returns.
Connection is legit but they are more of a business to business company with old school order processing. One time I had to call them to get my order procssed.
If you're on macOS Monterey, you are probably experiencing the memory leak bug, however, the OS will consume any empty memory as it sees fit, and reduce consumption as you open more and more tabs in Chrome. I have a 8gb base model MBA, and a Chrome tab whore, and have never seen the 8gb more than medium compression in Activity Monitor. I have almost as many tabs open as I do on my iMac with 32gb of memory and MBA is still far faster (probably due to all SSD).

Plus, if you look up the 16 vs 32gb memory comparison videos on YouTube of the new MBPs, there's literally no difference unless you're trying to do everything else anddd edit an 8k video file.

I love Costco as well but $50 less is significant if this checks out completely right?

This with Apple care plus or another 3rd party insurance will likely be the same price as Costco with their typical discount. Right?

This is a legit company and deal. This seems to be part of their annual Black Friday Sale. I purchased an IPad from them last BF and had no problems. They have some nice deals this year - all with limited quantities.

I own this and advise against the 8GB model. The OS itself seems to consume 5-6GB. Chrome browser with several tabs open takes up another 1+GB. Which leaves you with a machine that's swapping memory to SSD constantly, resulting in noticeable lag. I was even getting stuttering music playback with this basic usecase. Terrible decision by Apple to build an 8GB Mx machine. When you're not maxing out memory, the fantastic M1 shines ... but you're buying a complete system. I expected much better from Apple on this one.
