    Nobody does competitive gaming on laptops but for casual gaming m1 macbook works fine, you can use "parallels" to play windows games as well and they work fine and with m2 or m1x it will only improve with mini led and graphics power so macbook can be considered gaming laptop now..

    In the two decades I’ve been using computers, I’ve had RAM failures, hard drive failures, and power failures (both power supplies and batteries). As much as I like Apple’s products, I will NOT buy a product where I cannot repair, replace or upgrade some basic components myself or have it done in a reasonable amount of time.

    My Macbook Air is a fairly recent one (not M1 but an intel 2020 one) and I am already looking forward to the next Macbook I'll get. From the rumours that I am seeing they seem like they'll only get better. Before this one I had a 2012 Macbook Pro and some of the things that I prefer from this model over the newer one I have is magsafe and the amount of ports it has. If for the next Macbook lineup they're adding again magsafe and more ports alongside with the excellent performance of the M1 then I just see this as an absolute win for Apple.

    After thinking about buying a Zenbook 14, I bought a Macbook Air instead. 13 hours of battery life doing multitasking, at a minimum (I even got bored testing it), it's just a dream come true. I just hope it won't have any issues with the components just like its predecessors. And I still hate macOS paradigm until now, but it's not really a dealbreaker.

    Very reliable computers. I bought my MacBook back in 2012, was skeptical at first as i haven't used an Apple computer before and i bought it because it was ranked #1 at the time. I still use it as of 2021, it has outlived the two windows laptops i had prior combined. No performance reduction. Having 1500 charge cycles the battery is no longer as good as it was and is currently on "replace soon" status, but still acceptable for my use.

      @Dave2D I can run Linux on it! Does it make it all of a sudden a Linux Laptop? I can even Hackingtosh it... does makes it a Apple Mac? Hell I can even install BSD, Haiku, ReactOS or Android X86 but it still doesn't change the fact that it is a general purpose laptop that will allow you to run pretty much any OS there is. Sorry but insinuating that something runs Microsoft Windows doesn't make it a Windows Laptop no matter how much you would like that to be true. There is Simply no such thing as a Windows Laptop or Desktop. An Apple Macbook is not a MacOS laptop but an Apple because it is made by Apple and therefor a Apple computer that can also (if not an M1 processor at this point) run Windows. If I put MS Windows on my Apple Macbook does it make it all of a sudden a Windows computer? Of course not! it stays an Apple Mac. Your reasoning on this matter is flawed... btw my go to computer is a Desktop computer that runs Windows as it has the tools that suit best me as a developer though I have a Macbook and a general purpose laptop loaded with Ubuntu so I have no real preference over the products I use and it is all based on the tools available for my work. That last should be the only criteria when buying a computer... which is best suited for the task at hand and that funny enough that comes down to choosing between red apples or green apples.

    The M1 is mindblowing and i use mac for work but as a cloud sysadmin its bottom of the pile compared to linux or windows. Especially now that windows has a full linux kernel. Still.. nothing else as a laptop is going to give a work day worth of real charge. thankfully apple push devs to compile for ARM benefits microsoft too. And ultimately the move away from x86 hurts intel the most.

    I've recently got my hands on a MacBook Air 13" A1466 with a Linux install and I love the thing, it's older but boy that screen for an 8 year old device? Lovely. The keyboard needs to be replaced cause of two buttons that don't work, but the keyboard hardly ever misses and the battery has a dead pack but the other three seem to be fine. As a PC person the Mac hardware really impresses me over a not Mac laptop from the same year.

    agreed, i finally bought my first mac this year. The price is right, and the perf/battery is great. I got the pro if i could do over i'd get the air that touch bar sucks, just add heat conductive pad perf is the same. I thought the sound would be worth it since it is suppose to be better. I could care less about touch or bezels on any of these but that's me i hate finger prints. the m1 isn't hype. First mac i could justify buying. trust msft echo system will improve fast. Prediction 6 months to a year they'll be fully competitive. A lot of this is manufacturing process.

    All the Negative Comments and Dislikes are from Windows Fan Boys that are butt hurt because the New M1 Laptops actually have superior OS and now Superior Hardware Thanks to the M1 Chip. Macs in my own experience last longer without problems than a Windows Laptop computer. The M1 Laptop is superior than most Laptops in the same price range. I'm not an apple fan boy, i use windows desktops too. But when it comes down to Laptops, we have to admit Apple did a great Job with this new M1 Chips.
