    Picked up the MBA earlier today from Market Mall. Went with the 8GB version and in Gold is a nice change from my last MBP in Space Grey.

    Nothing to complain right now since it's brand new - just setting up all my mail/calendar accounts etc.

    Cool. Let me know when I can get XPS13 or Surface Laptop 13" with a non Intel processor haha.
    Some models of the surface had them but not sure about the 13". Looks like for 2021 here there are a ton more laptops using Ryzen 5000 and AMD is claiming 17.5Hr battery life while working and 20+ Hr for video/surfing. That is bonkers if it ends up being true.

    XPS models were all DOA last year due to the CPU and basically every review said they would be great if not for the CPUs. Razer is making the same mistake this year, all their brand new gaming laptops still 10th gen Intel despite using the 3000 series GPUs I wonder how much Intel is paying them lol.

    If you want the most power you can possibly get in a 13" this is probably your best bet: https://rog.asus.com/us/laptops/rog-...ow-x13-series/

    Was set on getting a 2021 G14, but that Flow X13 might just be the way to go for me....

    That Flow X13 is $3k USD. And you have to haul around a 2.5lb power adapter that also acts as an eGPU.

    Great for gamers I guess.

    Power adapter EGPU is actually brilliant.

    Unless I read it wrong, the eGPU dock is optional.
    Machine comes with a GTX1650 inside, with the 3080 in the eGPU dock.

    We'll know when it comes out. All the CES reports says it's a bundle. Maybe they'll separate it later?

    Presumably nothing is stopping you from using a generic USB C PD adapter when you don’t want the eGPU?

    That's the point. Today, the MacBook Pro Jr M1 does everything for 1/2 the price. MacBook Air at 1/3 the price.

    The daddy MacBook Pro is a terrible buy today unless you absolutely need x86. For the rest of us non developer plebs, it makes no sense.

    But I guess this is about shakalaka. Maybe he needs all that GPU for his word docs haha. @shakalaka how's the cheapest laptop Apple sells doing for you so far?

    Haha. Basically. I am pretty happy with my Air so far. The limited amount of use it gets, it does everything quite well. Battery lasts forever, which is awesome. Don't know yet how it'll do over time and I hope it's good but at least for the time being I can't really complain. Though what's shitty is that you buy the 'latest' version now and two months later they announce something newer but I guess that's just how the tech world works.
