Apple's new M1 processor is now featured in their MacBook Pro line of laptops. There are many great new features, but should I upgrade to a MacBook Pro, or should I consider the Macbook Air?

    @Rohith Mekala Apple is a shit company, with one of the worst (if not *the* worst) business practices in the tech industry and there is little to no evidence they have changed them. If you can afford an apple product, and still choose to buy apple, goes to show you don't give the slightest fuck about people.

    Okay, let me share my two cents on this as a fellow UNIX/Linux user. From what I have seen right now the OS is way worse than a KDE Plasma with Latte Dock - and I did the ultimate test here by asking my Mrs. which 'Mac' she would buy and she likes my Linux GUI more, saying that the actual Mac OS looks too complicated . Now let's talk hardware for a bit. 4 'performance cores' and 4 'efficiency cores' are either the same bollocks that I have in my $200 budget smartphone from the 'evil' Chinese company called Huawei or just this hyperthreading thing where I have 4 actually fully featured cores whilst there is 4 more cores without an FPU, so I won't really recommend to run anything on these... So what this really comes down to is a $65 Raspberry Pi 4B 8GB in a MacBook 'Pro' case with an ugly GUI for over twice the price of an Lenovo ThinkPad E595 with 32GB RAM and two SSDs, one of which being an NVMe one. I don't know about you guys but in Germany we call this full on FRAUD. Yes my friends, full on FRAUD, that's what it is! So my suggestion to solve this issue: Either keep your 'old' X86 Mac or get yourself the cheapest Lenovo Laptop there is, get some cool stickers to put on the back and install Linux. And if you want an actually very stylish beyond Apple look and feel I would suggest Hefftor Linux Plasma which just happened to have released a new version which you can download under . Welcome to 2021!

    hi everyone, on the first day of use, my Macbook Pro M1 16gb failed. After power shutting down a couple of times, at the third one the laptop didn't come back anymore. if I put the power cable in, I can hear a very low ticking sound, but the laptop does not turn on anymore. When it went black, it was connected to a 2k monitor with a displayport to thunderbolt 3 cable and to a usb c hub, with only a USB cable connected. The power cable was disconnected. Apple says it could be a hardware failure, but of course it is difficult to say without them being able to enter the laptop in remote. On the first day? with no really hard usage? I think I am going to return this one and wait for when they make it a more reliable machine. My MacBook Air from end 2012 served me so well and can probably serve me a little longer, even though at its own slow pace.

    Quick important question: Since the M1 chip set's cooling solution is very similar to its Intel predecessor (Just a copper heat pipe carrying heat away towards a tin stack promptly evacuated by the fan), I am wondering will the Macbook Air be able to sustain long periods of use time without over-heating [since it does not have a fan?] I am a teacher by profession, and the biggest issue I run into on a daily basis is the over-heating of my lap top due to pro-longed Zoom calls use-sage (the LOUD fan kicks after only 15 mins of use to the point it distrupts my class). Ps: I do not care about sustained performance. All I want is a device that can with-stand long use-sage (7 hour intervals). For the sake of longevity, which one I should get? Macbook Air? Or Pro? Please advise.
