  • I purchased the 16gb, 1tb, M1 Mac Mini. I currently own an upgraded 2012 Mac Mini that I was starting to feel limitations with and feel great about ordering this first-generation product. The bottom line is that it fits my needs and in the end, that’s what’s most important to me. That is the decision everyone has to make when purchasing any product.

  • I ordered the base MacBook Air. This is for home use, so I’m not too worried about power and apps, but it sure seems like I don’t need to worry anyway.
    I do feel a little weird about ordering a first-generation product, but I haven’t heard folks with the development units complaining. Have y’all?
