Very good price for a brand new macbook air I think as the refurbished ones from apple were around this much
Original Coupon Deal
It’s $1439 at the education store with AirPods 2. And you can sell the airport for $170 and also get cash back with Cashrewards too.
Do you need to be a student with .edu email to buy from education store?
No you don't. Got mine posted and left at the door. No question asked.
No need, just pay online and make sure you use cash rewards before checking out
$170 for an entire airport looks like a bargain. :)
Damn … this Covid has crashed the airport prices.
I won't even get a Parking for a day for that price prior to Mexican-Beer Virus days
Sold my AirPods for $185 including shipping, and got 5% cashback from Cashrewards as well. :)
Traded in my 6yo Macbook Pro for $400 so did pretty well!
No checks to see if I was a student either.
Hi just wanted to check if I can we claim tax rebate if using the mac for job or the ones from edu store cant be used for tax rebate? Thanks in advance.
That’s a good question but I can’t see the ATO giving a shit about it. You’d have an invoice for Mac that you use for work. How you got it cheaper through apple wouldnt be their concern.
Did they get rid of the airpods deal. It's additional from what I can tell.
Tempted for the Mac Mini at $936 too https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Apple-Mac-mini-M1-CHIP-8-CORE-CP...
Good tip, just hit buy now:)
Yeah i ended up getting one ;) I put the latest Mac OS on my 2014 Mac Mini and it's made it junk - everything takes about 30 seconds to register….
I have been wondering how some iOS apps I use run on a PC. Lucky I picked up a cheap KVM at Officeworks (last one) on the weekend.
1c cheaper here https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Apple-MacBook-Air-13-w-M1-chip-8...
I don't know about others but I am still skeptical of buying $1000+ worth products other than from the big guys like JB, HN, Apple themselves, Good Guys etc. if the difference is less than 20%.
I’d be skeptical for most products, just due to ACL returns. However, Apple allows you to go straight to their store to get service under the ACL, rather than requiring you to go via the retailer, so it really doesn’t matter where you buy it from.
The exception being if you're being sold a grey import without being aware. In the case you'll have a lot of trouble at an Apple store.
Wireless1 has never done that in my experience. You can usually tell stores that do so just from their websites, listings and feedback.
But it’s worth checking the box when you receive it, and if you’ve been sold one without it being disclosed, return it (eBay Plus has free returns).
@Mrlrlpe: Just curious though - if Wireless1 is located in Parramatta then why would it take 2 weeks to deliver to Darling Harbour? I could walk there, pick it up and walk back in 1 day.
@Islund: Shipping has always been listed as two weeks for me, but it’s arrived in a couple of days.
I think they’re just being cautious to avoid complaints (and perhaps allowing for the case where they have to get more stock in).
Iphone 12 pro max costs more than a laptop .. wohhhh
A very powerful laptop too, it's not like the old MacBook airs. These ones are legit powerful and battery efficient.
Missed the last deal, was able to grab one today.
I see these are very popular and saw a comparison that M1 is very close to one of the best intel CPU in single core comparison
My question is how fast are they in multi tasking and dual or more core performance?
M1 has 8 cores (4 performance + 4 efficient).
Basically obliterates all Intel 4 / 6 core laptop CPUs. Slightly faster than 8 core (eg MacBook Pro 16" with i9-9980HK), while using much less power.
It's ridiculous. I am a first time Mac user because the chips in these make them the best value for money laptop by such a wide margin. I put the thermal pad in mine for when I do long intensive work it cools via the case now, which means it maintains it's power over longer time periods now. It's crazy how fast this is. When I am not doing any intensive work the CPU doesn't get above 31 degrees.
which thermal pad you are using ? Does it gets really hot when doing intensive work for long time ?
@bunnybash which thermal pad you are using ? Does it gets really hot when doing intensive work for long time ?
I'm using this one - https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B08CGVZ4YG/ref=ppx_yo_d...
It's got one of the highest thermal conductivity ratings. It gets hot after about 10min of really really intensive work. BUT it also cools down within a minute of the activity ending and it hasn't added any noticeable heat during normal operation. So it's fine for using on your lap for watching 4K video, for browsing, for typing, for anything. It's the 15min export/rendering tasks that heat it up.
Overall the results are so worth it.
What I didn't know is that the 8 core GPU version have a pad already on the GPU heatsink that does this. It's nowhere near as conductive as the one I purchased, but I just left the stock pad in place because I want to keep my warranty intact. So I ordered too much of the thermal pad - got a whole one sitting in my drawer doing nothing - If you're in Perth you're welcome to come to buy it for a few bucks off me.
@bunnybash: Oh, I am in Melbourne. Is there any detailed video on how to do it and is it gonna void the warranty if someone opens the back panel of macbook ?
@ChipsChicky: there are a few videos that show you how to do it on Youtube. It's so simple to do, honestly, there's virtually no way to mess anything up in the process - just make sure to look after the screws!
That's the video I used, he's an Aussie guy who knows what he's doing. What version of the Air do you have? How many cores in the GPU?
@bunnybash: a friend has ordered one 16gb, 256gb, 7 core GPU .. and is noob in these matters, though I am too somewhat .. this video seems very explaining .. is it gonna void the warranty ?
Here's my thoughts, upgrading from a early 2015 13" Macbook Pro.
Fantastic value at this price, and I can run Windows 10 via Parallels!
I read somewhere that M1 chip doesn't allow you to run Windows, only Intel based Mac can
You can run it via Parallels.
Yea it's bootstrap support that's been removed.
Do you need to purchase windows license to run windows?
