Also, I am sure the Samsung webcam looks better even though it is 8mp vs. the Studio Display's 12mp rating (Studio display webcam is a higher mp rating /resolution because it is an ultra wide camera that is cropped down for normal usage, and used in full wide angle mode to support Center Stage).. But still no way is that worth spending the same amount of money on the lower build quality Samsung display for the true Apple Diehards either I think. Maybe if it was safely under $1000 it might be worth trying to save the bucks, but for same price no thank you haha.
Overall quite happy with my Studio display and how clean of a desk setup I have with my MacBook and also that I was able to snag it at $1349 on sale at Amazon using their store card (for another 5% off, so $1281.55 total!). I ended up getting the $49.99/year AppleCare+ from Apple and plan to leave that going for the foreseeable future as I love this display and hope to use it with multiple new Macs in the future (decade hopefully) and also as nothing is user repairable and the power supply is glued underneath the front glass panel lol. I want to keep this guy going for a loooooong time!
MacPro said:To the posts above about not caring or tossing the boxes. Word to the wise: I keep every package carefully, including the internal stuff, and make a mental note of how to reassemble it all. I've done this for every Apple product going back to Apple ][s. My resale prices attained are always top dollar, and the number one reason is usually the fact everything comes in pristine, original packaging, right down to the unopened docs and manuals in most cases, as I never need them. Second hand buyers love getting that same special Apple packaging.

I "downgraded" from a 16" M1 MacBook Pro to the M2 14" for enhanced portability and all (Plus a good friend of mine has been wanting the 16" beast for his photo work for a long time, so he got a good deal on mine and I got more than Apple gives on trade-ins). Anyhow, My 14" is in the mail when WWDC hits and I get the new product lust and order a 15" MacBook Air. Well, after a few days playing with both, realized I really do not need the immense power of the Pro and mostly wanted the larger screen honestly. The ProMotion was very nice, but I am overall quite satisfied with the new 15" Air and was happy to pocket the $700 savings. I kept the base model as I always get the upgrade bug every couple of years, I will take less of a bath on trade-in or re-sale value in the future and the 8/256 config is just about good enough for my usage.
I have to say, I am absolutely loving this puppy! My brain thinks of it more like the 15" MacBook Pro we have always wanted! Great keyboard, excellent sound, still a beautiful screen, 3x the battery life and less weight/bulk altogether a great package for the $1199 + Free $150 Apple Gift Card on offer at the EDU store right now!
