I looked into this question extensively because I use it for audio processing and plugins. My musician buddy did the same. We both concluded that the 8gb is enough. There are YouTube videos of dudes doing torture tests on the M1 Air and they are running like 150+ tracks all with multiple plugins at once with zero issues. Basically way more than I will ever need. My musician buddy even sold his 32gb 2020 MacBook Pro to go with the m1 air and he loves it

8 gb is not enough. I got 16 gb in my 2018 macbook pro and it isn't nearly enough for my browsing habits. I'm goign to have to get the 16 inch if they don't offer an option for more than 16 gigs in the 14 inch. I hope they dont even offer an 8 gig option, but knowing these idiots, they will

it makes no sense. I had 8 gigs of ram in my computer like 10 years ago. I got the upgraded cpu in my macbook pro and that was actually a waste of 200 dollars or whatever it was, because the difference in speeds of the cpus were marginal. but 8 gb vs 16 gb of RAM is something that actually makes a huge difference.

your mental model for ram usage is out of date and isn't applicable to SoC architecture. tests show that doubling the RAM doesn't improve performance in meaningful ways until you get to extremely high loads

I have the TTT Intel 2020 MacBook Air. It runs fine except it struggles with Zoom and multiple windows, which I know the M1 won’t. I am debating whether to just bite the bullet and get the M1 MacBook Air now or should I wait until the supposed MacBook Pro. I don’t use non USB C ports and I prefer USB C charging so I don’t care about Magsafe on the MacBook Pro. I am guessing it will just be a better computer but I probably won’t need it

when I looked at it, I remember the price for the latest model being close to $5k if you upgrade the ram and hard drive.

if you're going to buy a new macbook, might as well buy the upgrades so that it lasts a long time. get the 2tb hard drive at max ram you can afford

I have gigabit internet i don't need hdd space. You could just get a usb-c flash drive or external ssd if you really needed storage

I guess that's safer and less annoying than redundant local storage

I think I like having files date tagged though

or do you zip them up first thus preserving dates

I bought my wife the 2020 air pre M1 chip end it was complete garbage, overheated constantly with the most basic tasks. Way worse than our 7 yr old MacBook Air. Returned and got the pre M1 2020 pro. Pretty much the same issue. Took it into Apple who confirmed “it was running normally” despite the fan whining with two chrome tabs open and nothing else. Returned that and got the base level M1 air and it’s amazing. Super fast, super quiet, no issues whatsoever.

Yeah it's an amazing deal broseph. I was torn between 1tb and 2tb all night, wasted a bunch of time reading articles about it.

I thought about copping the 2 TB as well, but honestly I'll never even push up against the one TB. I'm not much of an HD hog, I'm more of a gritty litttle RAMPiG. I am lazy and unorganized and keep like 300 windows open at all times until my computer starts to slow down or freeze then I start closing stuff.

Took me a while to decide silver vs space grey though. I always liked the space grey better, but I'm starting to get sick of it and thought about trying the SILVER out, but ended up going with dat SPACE GREY.

I found out on the Apple site that I can get 700 for trading in my current intttel macbook pro. trying to decide if I should go to the apple store and do this tomorrow or if I should keep this as a spare.

They offered me $340 for my 2017 MacBook 12" but wouldn't allow a trade in to buy a refurbished Mac. I did a quick Google search and found other sites that will pay more than Apple and you don't need to leave your home

I think keeping a spare is a waste. It's just another thing that can get stolen, lost or broken during the 99.9% of time it's unused. If you're worried then get Apple care + for $249. I wouldn't ever get it for a desktop but for a laptop it's critical.

I'm an Apple Care noob. Do they automatically lend you a spare if yours is getting fixed?

IME they swap it out for a new/refurbished one on the spot if they can't fix it while you're at the store. They don't keep them overnight to tinker around with anymore unless you're paying out of pocket for the service.

$1,700 (almost $400 off retail).

Using for work and trials so extra memory will be totally worth it.
