It amuses me that VRing conflates UEFI with BIOS. UEFI is far more advanced in what it does compared to outdated BIOS.
I knew the moment that Windows PC manufacturers started making their systems using UEFI that people would continue to lazily and confusingly use the term BIOS in systems where it’s absent.

macOs isn't based on Unix, its Mach.
It does have a compliant bash shell which is seen by many as Unix.
And (to help you a bit) Linux users like bash too.

For online purchases this limit is not present, at least that’s always been my experience.
I have a couple of friends and acquaintances with their retail businesses. Each of them independently told me they have set Apple Pay on their NFC terminals at a limit of around £750 before further authorisation is required; the nature of their businesses are such that it will be exceptional to have a transaction approaching that limit.

I was back in the market for an X model until prices were announced. It's now a no go for us.
The new XS range has launched at the same price level as last year’s X; thus you should be able to get the X at an even cheaper price in clearance sales.

Apple Pay is easy and works with the Apple devices you use every day. You can make secure purchases above the £30 contactless limit in shops, apps and on the web. So it’s as simple as using your physical card, and even safer too.

Now I need to return my wireless-charing AirPods for the normal...if a mat can't do all three devices it isn't worth it to me.

The only MacBook with that type of keyboard
Portability comparable to the Macbook
i5 or i7 CPU
Longer battery runtime than Macbook
SD card slot
I suspect it is still a good seller in spite of the low res screen. When I visit colleges I notice that it is the most common model used by students. With an educational discount they can probably get their hands on the base model for about $800.
If they make a poor product that nobody wants then they’ll revise or discontinue. The recent results suggest the current MacBook and MacBook Pro lineup are very much in demand.
If there’s anyone in denial, it’s those who feel Apple slights them by not catering for their particular niche amongst the majority of Mac laptop purchasers.
