    This M1 MBA's battery is ridiculous. My MBA's brightness is at one step using shift+option+f1, so pretty much the lowest possible using the keyboard, which I personally think is still too bright when no other lights are on. But man, 20 hours lol.

    Anybody tried the Pro education bundle worth P9,990? I'm iterested in getting it for Final Cut Pro which alone seems to cost P14,999 in the Mac apo store.

    That’s what we all need for brownouts, as long as we also have an internet connection during the brownouts

    So my M1 arrived today! I squealed with joy! I think I still am, internally. And in my one hour of use after Migration, I can say that everything that everyone is happy about with this machine is actually right hehe

    But I gotta say, the thing that's so remarkable to me is Sidecar. As a not-too-happy user of Duet on my old 2014 MacBook Pro with my 1st gen 12.9" iPad Pro, I just cannot believe how fast, seamless, and smooth it is even when the connection is wireless. Just blows my mind!

    Has anyone tried replacing the rubber feet on their Macbooks? They're useless. They don't stick at all to the surface they are placed on. Trying to lift the Macbook's lid causes it to slide off the surface.

    haha well ain't that daughter a lucky gal? I might sell mine to my brother and get either an air or a 14" prob - all depending on the price.

    im using an m1 pro now and from the looks of it, i wouldve been better off with an air. Maybe i shouldve gotten a new mba and ipad pro. No wonder the MBA has been oos the past few weeks - most defly sulit sa specs

    There's no bootcamp in M1 macs so, no. I think I read someone ran the ARM version of Windows 10 on M1 Macs but I don't believe that's available publicly.

    it's only been a week since wife & I got our M1's and we're loving it. This thing is quiet, fast & gorgeous. We're coming from 2010 & 2011 MBA's so the M1's are lightyears ahead

    only gripe, I miss the glowing apple logo.
