Apple M1 MacBook Air : Tough but Nice
I have joined in the fun with the purchase of the base model of the Apple M1 MacBook Air. It has been 4 years since I got the MacBook Pro (a refurnished unit with Touch Bar). It has really served me well and I have pushed back on upgrading it (I was once, so close to ordering to the 16 inch MacBook Pro). But seriously, it has been a good work horse and has been pretty stable (actually very stable) and survived many a road trips and is a great companion.
But me being me…. could NOT resist the temptation so last week, on my visit to the amazing Apple Store at the Marina Bay Sands, I got myself the base model of the MacBook Air. This is a 8GB MacBook Air with 512 GB SSD. Okay.. the second item on the menu available for walk in customers. I did stopped myself from getting the 16GB MacBook Air with 1 TB SSD 🙂

My version of the Apple M1 MacBook Air is the 8GB version with 512GB SSD.
Very easy to unbox the Apple M1 MacBook Air…. pull the tag and off the plastic wrapping comes…
Hello BABY !
Wanted to say such a beauty but then it is the SAME casing as before 🙂 Just the inside has changed…. to a M1 Apple made chip…
Charger and USB C Charging Cable…
Only two Thunderbolt Ports…. only 2… from the 4 I had in my MacBook Pro
The keyboard. The better one……
And no Touch Bar anymore 🙂
Setting up the Apple M1 MacBook Air
Easy as usual with all my stuff up in the “cloud” (i.e. Apple iCloud)….
So far I have been using it for a couple of days, so far so good…
I hope I can keep this machine for another 4 years !!
Update in Dec 2022 : Bought a new MacBook Air M2 Midnight Blue
