      Apple started to sell M1 Macs on their refurbished website. It's a sweet deal for anymore in the market for them, especially people who are interested in MacBook Air.
      In contrast to a brand new M1 MacBook Air with the same spec (8GB+256GB), an extra $140 gives you the Touch bar, longer battery life and better cooling.
      **Touch bar is kinda useless but it's nice for skipping ads**

      Cheers!
      Saw these today, not a bad deal but think I will stick with my air. Touch Bar definitely seems like it would be a downgrade to me. Wish they had 16gb versions available refurbished as I think any kind of serious user should spring for the extra memory.

    • It’s hard to understand why Apple can’t put 16GB RAM in a 1500$ laptop in 2020

      I bought my 16GB RAM for 80$ when building my PC

      They do have 16GB + 512 GB for $1,869.

      Fans of Apple will say you don't really need that much ram, or it's because Apple is so memory efficient.

      But on the contrary, unused ram is wasted ram.

      His point is more related to the price point...less on "why not 16GB".

      I mean a similar ultrabook, the xps 13 is $1399 and comes with 8gb of ram, quite a few ultrabooks have only 8GB. Should it be more? For sure but not much one can really do...

    • try it and you'll understand. For majority of people M1 with 8GB RAM is faster or at least on par with X64 + 16GB RAM

      Agree. Unused RAM is just powered up chips for no reason. There's always something to cache...something better placed in RAM than for disk I/O. (even if that 'disk' is an SSD)

    • $1439 refurb vs $1569 edu or $130 savings. Refurb worth it?

      Optimizations are not magic. Apple can not control the memory usage of apps they do not develop. They could "optimize" them OS side to reduce memory, ie through compression, but that would literally come at the cost of performance.

      As for performance metrics, iPhones win CPU performance metrics when compared against Android but that has little to do with memory optimizations. The main reason iPhones use less RAM than Android phones is the nature of the OS itself. The OS restricts background usage, which is good from a performance and battery standpoint, but of course has the drawback that it severely limits multi-tasking in the device.

      He's a good one, very down to Earth.

      He's also the reason I don't touch Macbooks, that and the price, and keyboard.

      I would pay extra to get rid of the stupid touch bar. Dead serious.
      Good deal btw..

      No, the optimizations do not come at the cost of “performance”. Here’s the iPhone 12 Pro Max handily beating the s21 ultra (with double the RAM at 12 GB vs 6Gb on the iPhone). The iPhone was able to keep just as many apps cached in background.

    • If you are in the macbook pro market, I would probably hold for the 14" with M1X supposedly coming in Q2.

      Looks like they have 16GB versions?

    • Just here to let anyone considering an M1 MacBook know that they're fantastic and worth the price. They'll smoke most laptops twice their price in day to day tasks. I'm not biased either, my main computer is an i7/3080gtx build just to give myself some credibility here.
