    Tbh I just bought the M1 because I’m upgrading from my 2015 MacBook Pro with 128gb 🤦‍♂️ I literally can’t download shit anymore without using a external SSD! I’ve been struggling with that for 5+ years so I figured I pulled the trigger and get the 2TB M1 and not a damn day goes by that I regret getting it.

    Mac book pro is not worth buying in India it's battery is not taking charge after 6 month , suddenly it's battery dropped from 80 to 1 percent charge and service in India is pathetic. Please go for older Intel based mac or other alternative other than Mac

    I feel it's high time that tech reviewers need to review how game engines run, like unreal engine 4 or unity, like the time it takes to compile high-res shaders and textures on these devices. Those programs are much more taxative than benchmark tests and photo editing tools. Almost all tech reviewers only review the photoshop editing speed and geekbench scores. :(

      What kind of degree are you enrolled in? It depends on the workloads. This is just my opinion, but if you're only doing basic research, using Office apps, and watching videos, then I believe your current MBP will do fine. If you merely want some of the upgrades (increased battery life, faster CPU, etc.) and still only do basic research, use Word or Excel, and watch videos, the M1 MacBook Air is an absolute beast. But again, that's if you *want* the upgrades (or, also, if your current MBP is damaged in some way). If not, it's not necessary and you're better off waiting for the design refresh coming sometime in the next year or so (if you want a new computer). *Allegedly.*

    This is a little late from when you posted this, but I'm looking into this computer (M1 13" Macbookpro) and heard you mention Photoshop was not quite ready/compatible and would be next year (This year), Using rosetta at the time of video... Is the silicone app now ready for Photoshop? This is a big app I use frequently.

    I’ll give you this freebie, get an Intel MacBook Pro, top of the range and then do the following against an M1 MacBook. Use Davinci Resolve and do an export on both of exactly the same project, then while it’s exporting try and use other applications. You will see that the Intel completely grinds to a halt and that you can’t do anything else while it’s doing that but the M1 Mac you can carry on working away and being productive. I’ve done this in several different ways and applications in my 16 inch 2019 fully speced MacBook Pro grinds to a halt. This would make a very good video and truly show the power over and above just simple deep bench type stuff. With the M1 chip you do not need to walk away and let it run that you can carry on working.

    I own a 2019 16'' MacBook Pro and am pretty unhappy with editing 1080p footage in Final Cut Pro on this machine. I feel like it stutters on very simple tasks. This shouldn't be the case with a 3k+ Computer in my opinion. Do you think it makes sense to sell this one and get a 13'' M1 MBP instead?
