Buying the M1 MBA was a no-brainer for me. My current machine is a 2014 MBA on its last legs. I slept on it just to make sure and just pulled the trigger minutes ago. My one regret was not buying yesterday as I'll probably get the new machine end of this month or early December.My only Windows issue has to deal with collaborating with others. So they'll have to find alternatives or they're SOL.
I bought the M1 Air jacked up. Purpose was simply to experience the new and old and iOS apps together. And, to have a machine in the middle of my current devices.And to experience how Apple's monthly 0% interest financing works.
My delivery time is slated between December 4 and 14, although when I started the purchase process (it took me about ten minutes for a couple of reasons), the estimate was the end of November. So I'm assuming that the number of people buying at least right away was fairly significant.
The previous MacBook Air models did not support DCI-P3 so this is incorrect. It is new to the M1.
