Battery life is going to be insane on these things. It looks like an easy 2 days of battery life
Ruben C. B. Mendez Reategui
Hi Dave! I have a query ... between a Macbook air (early 2020 i7) with 16GB RAM and an M1 with 8GB RAM, which one do you recommend buying ...?

@Dave, super genuine and realistic points covered. Definitely appreciated. Need your advice: Can you suggest a long time windows user who wants a ultra portable laptop safe to use for next 4 years. MacBook air or surface pro 7 i5. Not a gamer or video editor, more likely a daily casual user with most work n movies.

I was the biggest apple hater but now I simply cannot be that guy anymore what they’ve accomplished is nothing less than legendary, I believed in it so much I sold my gaming laptop for the MacBook Pro

People seem to think it’s the battery that’s improved .... isn’t it because of the M1’s ARM (RISC) architecture that the laptop has better battery life ?

I haven't had a macbook in 10 years, it was an 11" MacBook air. I moved in with my girlfriend who lived on kind of a shady street and some thugs busted into our apartment, put a gun to my head and took it 😆, been using PC ever since and haven't been robbed once, coincidence? 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️ Who's to say lol
My pro am confused for this one. Can you clear it that it could be used for Architecture programs like Lumion and Revit

Hello! I saw that you are making great tech reviews. I really like that and appreciate your work! I have mentioned your channel in my video: us-first.info/player/video/hKx6gY90o457emA.html I am Android developer from Ukraine. I am choosing the next working machine for me, and for this purpose I am testing different laptop performance. To do that properly I have prepeared a big test project to test Android Studio real life performance. It will take only 1 hour of your time to finish it. Here is the repository with code and step-by-step guide: github.com/yozhik/AndroidStudioBenchmark/blob/master/README.md That is open source project of Firefox browser for Android, it weights 6Mb and when unpacked and everything setup - 6Gb. It compiles for more than 7 min on my desktop machine, and 2-3 times faster on some modern PC machines. It would be cool if you could do indepth test with this project for us Android developers, so we could see and compare the results with our machines, for this there is an excel file with results: docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1AeeT_54b2VnovN4ikIsglh2Sc7U0bWxAarDKmGAJFtg/edit?usp=sharing And videos with test results are in this youtube playlist: us-first.info/name/PLzZmmGI65hndugkUKKwZF-r9GG0hFObZW If you own PC or Mac now, I don't know 100% is that devices you review your own or they just "come and go", but it would be great to make a test on them. And also interesting to test this project on Macbook Pro 2019 16" and the new one Macbook Pro/Air with M1 chip to compare performance. And also to try to run this project on Android Studio on Windows 10 incide MacOS on Parallels and via Bootcamp and to see the difference in performance. Hope, you'll find my test interesting for you and you could make a great tech review on that. Everything is described in details on my github repository, and if you will struggle with something - you can freely contact me. Regards, Serhii.

APPLE are such scum - we'll chuck the same APU in all our devices and just deliberately nerf it on the cheapest one...what scum, if it wasnt for how awful windows 10 is compared to windows 7 I would suggest you just buy a PC...now, i cant make such a suggestion, windows 10 is pure cancer.

I wonder how every youtube reviewer make their review for another youtuber, not for general consumer or students... Majority of people buy a laptop for media consumption and office work, and student are buying laptop for assignment... Not for video ending and photoshop.... Specially Engineering student, laptop is mandatory for them... But, just not this channel, every reviewer talking about video editing, why man.... Please let us know about software compatibility... . In my first semester in varsity few of ny friends bought macbook air, and guess what, they cant even able to run our some important programme, and tech reviewer are give us solution to use bootcamp, but they forgot, it have only 256GB storage... . I mean seriously 256GB storage of a laptop, and no reviewer have been talking about this... Please shout out for the storage system, we cant even make a collection of movies, games and other personal data. You guys should talking about this, and make review for general consumers, make a review for Engineering students,try to find software compatibility issue, rather than make video for other youtubers.... . Thanks to all. . N.B... English is not my native language, so please forgive me for any mistake...

In your opinion, after the new Apple processors came out for me, the MacBook Pro ..... I am a regular user. I have an iPad Pro 12.9 inch. I use reading to browse movies and games. You recommend that I buy with an iPad MacBook Pro 13 inch because of the games. Forget me, I only have an iPad ???? I know the last Mac laptop was the 2015 version, and after that I used an iPad. I want your opinion after I explained to you what I use ..... I mean games are light games that I use on an iPad. I don’t understand games like Windows. This is what I mean, except that I use it to watch movies other than This will be used to download books and novels on an iPad, this is my intention and sorry for prolonging .... What do you think about blood money?

Damn, as much as I dislike Apple's walled ecosystem and it's practices,They made a damn impressive chip. The thing that caught me is that M1 is able to run x86 apps fairly well or atleast at usable speed ,unlike windows arm devices such as the Surface Pro X which stuttered like crazy. Microsoft has some catching up to do. Direct attack on Amd/Intel and we'll get better computers from competition.

@Yuckmout' From Down Underthank you so much for your extensive comments! Very helpful. I will order the base model. Take care.
Yuckmout' From Down Under
@Zachary Baldwin In my personal opinion the 8 gpu cores (upgraded spec) opposed to 7 gpu cores isn't really all that worth it from what the tests have shown us & tbh I think the same about 16 GB of RAM and tests have sort of backed that thought ( us-first.info/player/video/mbChZ5Zmlneia3k.html ) these new chips handle RAM so well. Although I feel that would be the better route for "future" proofing as in the future there may be apps that require higher RAM configurations or your use case may be significantly different/demanding than mine. I browse the web, use Spotify, AlgoRiddims DJ Pro (which was a *nightmare* on my old base 2020 air), and watch videos/movies at night time when going to sleep & maybe do some light editing here and there which this machine can handle all of without breaking a sweat with 8GB RAM. Also, there's a few people on the Macbook subreddit that have bought the 8 and 16gb version and noted no difference therefore returning the 16gb model
Zachary Baldwin
Zachary Baldwin 3 months ago
@Yuckmout' From Down Under thank you sir - i have just sold my early 2020 air. I had a base model and im thinking about getting the new M1 with the higher spec OR with 16gb RAM. What are your thoughts on these options?
Yuckmout' From Down Under
Yes, I did and it's a huge difference. The base MBA struggled and turned the jet engines on on when watching videos higher than 1080p or using Spotify and browsing the web for me. The M1 is LEAGUES above the base MBA
