I'm going to do a fresh install. Seems sensible with a change in architecture.
Never done it. Genuinely, I've never done it on any Mac I've had although when I got the iMac, I did a Migration Assistant from the old one so I suppose that counts.
What browser are you guys running on the M1's?
Is there a recommended portable dock to use with Macbooks?
Looking for a few USB 3.0 ports, gigabit ethernet, HDMI 2.0 ([email protected]) or HDMI 2.1 as a minimum.
I'll run Safari, just as I am on my two Intel Macs.
Unsurprisingly safari performs best in Mac.
Never been a huge fan of Safari for a good few years on my Mac's, maybe will give it another go. Shame there's a few things not supported, but can always use Chrome for those I guess.
ARM Chrome also performs very well and is almost as fast as Safari, but is still a ram hog.
My 8/7/16/256 Air arrived this morning, it's a thing of beauty
What are the first two numbers?
Believe 8 Core CPU, 7 core GPU.
So the base air has 8 core cpu and 7 core gpu, but the 512gb edition air has 8/8?
Firefox Nightly for the time being, there's an issue with Firefox (including beta and Developer Edition) when running uBlock Origin and certain addons, where the browser just freezes, crashes, so basically it's unusable, it's probably fixed by now, I haven't checked yet, but at the time Nightly was the only build that worked.
Few days of using the M1 MacBook Air, it's really as good as they say, and it's amazing how fast it is and it never gets hot at all, even with the removal of the fan in Air.
Safari, although I don't much like the way extension works through it. Adguard is buggy currently too, but all being said it stills seems to run faster than anything else. I'll probably switch back to Brave once there's an M1 version out.
Safari for a number of reasons. Speed, KeyChain, hand-off, syncing to Safari on my other Apple devices. I believe it's better for battery as well, but I haven't tested that.
4K, HEVC, 10 bit. No frames dropped and the laptop isn't even warm to the touch. This is absolutely incredible.
Can anyone with an Air and a Pro tell me what the corners are like on that little indent just below the track pad.
On my old Air (2011) I never had an issue with then, but the Pro (2015) I sometimes find them quite sharp and digging into my hand depending on my position when using it.
Not even noticed it on my MBA - although from memory one of my older Mac's definitely were more sharper. These feel somewhat rounded off.
Separate names with a comma.
