      Feeling like a moron in a few months when M4 one drops. Aside of that

        The M4 Air won't drop till next year, apple did the same with M2 & M3, the MBP will drop this year though. If you need a laptop now, I'd just get the base model M2 Air for £899; it's practically disposable at that price.

          Yeah, I guess that somewhat balances it out.

          This applies to every Mac. The next mac is always less than a year away.

          It getting dabbed on by an iPad like 2 months later feels like the first time inside the ARM era actually.

      Great hardware, tolerable OS, tolerable GUI, software priced for people with jobs, and a notch that makes you want to use https://www.macbartender.com/ but escapes your notice otherwise

      An enjoyable computing experience. Daily drove Linux for about 12 years until the M1 processor came out and decided to take the plunge. Had the thing for 3 years now and I still actively enjoy opening it up to use. It's the best hardware money can buy and I find macOS to be clean and well-thought out in general. It's an actual *nix system that can run big-box software and which you don't have to spend hours configuring. Yeah, "it just works".

      I know it's a meme but I actually don't notice the notch. It has never even for a second bothered me, and I was worried it would when I first bought the laptop. It tends to blend in after about 2 minutes of use IMO.

        Had Thinkpads and viaos from 1999 until late last year and decided to splurge on the 14" M2 Pro Macbook Pro and it was the best laptop I ever had. But complete overkill for what I needed, so returned it and got the M2 13" Air and love the thing. All my Thinkpads I've had have been spec'd out to the max as well and the MBP and Air are far and away superior to any of them I've had. With Brew installed there's really nothing I miss from Linux either.

        Already put my pre-order in for the Thinkpad T14s gen 6 (snapdragon X elite). The build quality will never beat the Mac, but I want to see what the Snapdragon is like with Linux compared to the M chips with MacOS.

    I only have an M1 and that was already a very nice computer. Don't think I could go back to a laptop with a fan now.
    You'll encounter some quirks if you're not used to macOS, but I'm sure you'll like it overall.

    If you got enough RAM, you're in for a computer you won't think about for at least 3 years. It'll be boring, and you'll forget you own it - the best possible outcome these days for a computer.

    I bought an M1 Air 16/256 earlier this year and don't regret it at all. It's fast and lightweight with no fans, yet it never heats up. Also, less bloatware and a much more intuitive file system to navigate through compared to Windows. The modern, minimalistic design is also *chefs kiss*.

    Great machine, good performance, long battery life and lightweight. Downside is restrictive macOS ecosystem and a bit pricey but honestly probably the best latptop on the market right now.

    How shit are the 8GB RAM ones? I have someone offering to sell me an M2 one cheap, but I'm not sure if it's even worth bothering with.

      Usable as a secondary device. I wouldn't run containers/clusters on it, but it can easily hold an IDE, some few tabs on safari and a terminal to SSH into a device you can do heavy work with before swapping. I'll keep mine until I can get some arm notebook with similar weight and battery running linux.

        Thinkpad X13s Gen 1 used a 8cx Gen 3 Snapdragon. Keep an eye out for those popping up used. And as mentioned, there's the T14s Gen 6 coming, however that's obviously larger than the X13 chassis.

        I want 12.5 inch Thinkpad X laptops back. Thicc for more battery, but small and with ARM chips. X260/X270/X280 size with the bulge battery.

          I was also waiting until ARM became fully supported natively by must applications (that could happen in this current push). I don't mind not being as thin, the weight that matters in the end (I'd exchange thinness with repairability as well).

          I only use desktop but does using linux reduce battery life compared to the OS that was optimized for the device?

    Pretty stable experience. Smooth UI. High quality apps and programs. Reliable and frequent updates that don’t break your system. Awesome editing and content creation tools.
    Just don’t expect any customization or reliability.

    I'm not going to tell you how to set up your python environment (I use pyenv and venv, have been meaning to look into autoenv) because there's a million ways to do it and all of them Just Break™ at some point. I wish python would just frick off

    Pristine build quality, a severe lack of ports, and excellent performance (assuming you aren't gaming) to a point that is extreme overkill for web development.

    Apple will install AI spyware, a la Microsoft Recall, in a couple of years once every other platform has done it first.

      the only way that happens is if Apple partners with Microsoft for copilot, and I highly doubt that they'll want to lose control over their user data like that. Apple is too far behind on shit like AI to catch up. They couldn't even keep up with Google Assistant

    I’m tempted to buy one to replace my M1 MBP 16GB. I feel like it doesn’t “count” as a Mac anymore because it’s not the latest model. I’m also worried that it has viruses on it, so it’s probably time to replace it.

    Let's just say for arguments sake, I wanted to buy a MacBook. What version would be ideal for me? All I do on the internet is:

    - Browse IQfy and post on it.
    - Watch videos on YT.
    - Make purchases on Amazon.
    - Check my e-mails.
    - Browse booru's for images that I like.
    - Google stuff that I need to look up (ie: when council bins go out or I don't know the meaning of the word).
    - Check my banking and how much money I have.

    So many wienersuckers ITT. Webshit does not need anything fancy. Any $300 used business laptop can do it just fine. Heck even the Intel 8th gen i5 laptops do the job and you can find those for < $100 all day long on eBay.
