No. Ram upgrades could be done for some macs but now everything is much more integrated and thus not upgradable with the M1 and upcoming macs.

I would pay $50 more to buy at Costco and not have to deal with manufacturer's warranty department
Waiting for the "8GB RAM isn't enough" comments that always plague these MacBook/Mini deals.

Great laptop, probably the best bang for your buck at this price point. I bought it for $770 from Microcenter, base model works great but if you want to future proof then upgrade to 16GB model.

it's interesting how MicroCenter always tries to beat Costco price by $20 when this laptop goes on sale at Costco.

I'm willing to pay $20 more for Costco awesome return and warranty policies.

1st post. Can 100% say that doesn't matter w macs. I'm a professional designer and still love my 8GB RAM MacBook because it has MagSafe, SD card slot, and usb A ports

This is also the 7 core version where as the Costco deal is 8 core. Not the same model.

Nope. I just looked at the specs on micro center. It is also the 8 core. I would also pint out that Best Buy will price match Microcenter.

FYI: Apple will likely announce a new redesigned MacBook Air at WWDC on June 6. Having said that, this is still an awesome deal on a great laptop

Awesome deal. M1 is incredibly powerful.

USB C only is dealt with easily by buying USB to USB C adapters on Amazon. Like $10.

Only caveat is the battery does not last long.
I upgraded from a 2015 Air, and it was a very noticeable decline in battery life.
Other than that it's amazing!

I came from a Dell XPS so this long battery life was something I never experienced before. I can get 10+ hrs out of it on battery, is that lower than 2015 MBA?
