    • Update Dan, John Lewis wrote to me to say got to take it up with Apple, no refund. I’ve made formal complaint tonight with JL and said my contract is with them not Apple, and nowhere in their info did it state the Apple Watch 6 contained Nickel in the magnets or the Aluminium, it didn’t warn people if you have a Nickel allergy be aware, or on the Apple website, yet having looked online last night, loads of people are posting pics of skin dermatitis cause by the watch case, even the stainless steel one contains nickel, and Apple are acknowledging it’s a problem for some people, and saying if you’re sensitive to nickel be aware! Bit late don’t you think Dan? 🙄😡 xx

    • I’m not having much luck lately Dan, my body doesn’t like the aluminium watch 6, my arm has come up in a raised red rash obviously an allergic reaction to the aluminium! I rang John Lewis tonight and asked if I can return and pay the £300 extra for the stainless steel model, I know I’m ok with that, so I’m waiting for a call back in the next 24 hours! Im no good with plastic cases either so that not an option. 🙄 xx

  • I read an article on MacRumors titled "Developers delves into reasons why Apple's M1 chip is so fast" by Juli Clover. The article says that the reason M1 is so fast is not because the M1 is a fast general purpose CPU like the Intel and AMD, but it is mainly because it is a collection of specialized dedicated hardware chips that does spedific work very fast. So instead of using the general purpose CPU to encrypt files, it actually has a specific hardware chip dedicated for encryption. Similarly, instead of using the general purpose CPU to encode/decode h.264 and h.265 video, the M1 has a chip for h.264 encoding/decoding on hardware and another chip to encode and decode h.265 video. The M1 has many other chips to hardware accelerate decompressing music, for processing images, etc. and all the most used functions by the power user. So therefore the M1 appears fast, but if there is a function that it does not have hardware acceleration for, then it will use its general purpose CPU to carry that function out at speeds comparable to Intel and AMD. And on top of that, it has unified memory to accelerate memory usage. So this is why the M1 appears as if it was a very fast general purpose CPU. Comparing M1 to Intel/AMD is like comoparing apples to oranges, one is a general purpose CPU and the other is a collection of very fast accelerators. Ultimately, the end result is impressive. "All" Intel/AMD has to do is build a hole bunch of instruction sets in hardware into their CPU for the most used computer functions to imitate the M1 (and also reduce power comsumption). All this time people are so impressed thinking that the M1 is a super fast general purpose CPU, but the magic is in building in specialized chips for acceleration. The weakness of the M1 will show when the M1 is called to do something it is not pre-selected to handle it in hardware acceleration. When the computer is programed to do something completely new (say encode video on a future/new h.266 encoding/decoding), it will struggle and fall behind faster general purpose Intel/AMD CPUs.

  • You compared the 8GB RAM intel model with the 16 GB M1 model. Although I have no doubt that the M1 still wins the day, I'd be interested in comparing the actual CPU with the rest of the computer comparable.

  • I wonder, does apple start to make a much powerful processor that is more powerful than M1 and twice the power of the latest Mac Pro with latest i9 Intel chip, and that monstrous chip will gonna put at the new Mac Pro 🤔🤔🤔🤔, boom that's will gonna be unbelievable powerful... A game changer... The M1 is in the laptop only and it's amazingly powerful, then imagine a more powerful chip that is originally made by apple at the desktop CPU the Mac Pro...well well..woahhh.

  • Guys, I don’t know what to do. I’m a videomaker, photographer and graphic designer. I use Final Cut Pro and the Adobe suite. (Photoshop, lightroom and illustrator) I just ordered the MacBook Pro M1 512gb with 8gb ram. Should I call and ask if they can instead send me the M1 AIR with 512ssd and 16gb ram instead? Or should I put other 300$ on the table and get the 16gb ram MacBook Pro? Or will I be good editing 4k and using Adobe suite on the 8gb MacBook Pro m1?

  • I wanted an Air so badly but I use my laptop outside quite a bit (on my balcony, at school, when I go on camping trips etc and the 400 nits (a lot of measurement actually have it producing more like 360-370 nits) really is almost unusable outside on sunny days. For a laptop this thin and portable, it’s a big letdown that it can’t get as bright as the pro. I spent an extra $300 to get the pro instead. The lack of fan and the wedge design is something I wanted badly but I just can’t with a screen that dim.

  • Yes, a powerful jump in performance. However, I'm disappointed you didn't cover any of the cons or maybe even worse, unaware of limitations in the M1 lineup. That is, the new Macbook Air only supports one external monitor. Yes, that's right only ONE monitor. To me this is a deal breaker. I've been waiting for years to upgrade and sadly I'll need to wait a little longer until Apple release a new model that fixes this limitation.
