    M1 seems expensive compared to this:

    •  

      Op is $1 cheaper actually.

      •  

        Oh right there's a maximum discount

        512gb = $1949 - 20% = $1559? Unless I'm mistaken?

        •  

          Max $300 with this code.

        •  

          Max discount of $300 with the code

          •  

            @Merlict: Got it, my bad, so yeah $1 cheaper deal.

    New M1 coming out in July

    •  

      Is it macbook 14"‽

      •  

        Rumoured to be, and the new 16"

        • +1 vote

          Well, second half of the year, so might not be July.

      I wonder if Apple will revert to type and charge eye watering "professional" prices for m1x laptops or follow the recent trend and bring it in at $1800-$2000. Either way it's hard to see how you aren't better off paying the extra $250 for M1 version above (unless you have special Intel needs).

    No virtualisation on M1 = RIP for actual professionals with IT professional use-cases.

    That's why I cannot use M1 Macs for work. I must have Intel compatibility to run VMs at near native speed. Unfortunately, I will have to buy Intel laptop."

      TIL you are only a real professional if you use your PC to run VMs

      •  

        Yep, there are no professions other than ones that use VMs :)

    •  

      FTFY: "I must have Intel CPU virtualization extensions / instruction set to run Intel VMs at near native speed"

      I reckon that people who have the need to run Intel VMs at near native speed will probably have some solution to this conundrum; and it won't be a MacBook.

      (it will probably be some kind of hypervisor running on Intel hardware. And it will probably be accessible / manageable from an M1 MacBook)

        I use my Mac for running vms. It's super handy for PoCs. Do I want a new M1 based Mac, yes, do I want it to have 16 to 32 gigs of ram and virtualisation extensions, heck yes. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

      Apples target demographic has been consumers not business for the last few years

  •  

    i5-8265u?or 8250u?

    •  

      Both i5 models use a i5-8257u.

  •  

    i5 is $1699.99 when i click on deal?

      That's why it says [AfterPay] in the title, you must select afterpay as a payment method to enter the discount code. Then you can either pay for it with gift cards or just use afterpay.

      •  

        Cool, thanks. Ive never used afterpay, so i didnt understand that part, is it easy to do? as i just prefer to pay things outright

        •  

          You can pay for the remaining installments straight away you don't need to pay every 2 weeks. But if you are applying for a mortgage, seeing afterpay payments in your bank statements is not looked upon favourably.

            @brosk1s: Wow, im glad you mentioned that, im in the process of looking at land for a build.

            •  

              @snipercat: You can use gift cards after choosing the afterpay option. That way it never shows up in your bank.

    How come no one stocks 16gb ram ones :(

      It's a custom order from Apple only.

      JB might still do CTO but they won't be discounted

    Who would buy a laptop with 8gb memory?

      less RAM required with M1 architecture compared to x86
