Buy it off Apple for £1000 and you’ll be waiting till mid July. Stock just isn’t out there yet
Despatched within 30 days!!! What on earth! I want next day delivery if I’m spending £900
How does the warranty work if you aren’t a student? Can you get AppleCare+? Can you deal with Apple directly at all?
I tend to buy them on release and so already have both but I could definitely do with renewing my AirPods. I’ll be looking out for this too as plan to get the 12.9 M1
Hopefully, that'd be cool too! In the US giveaway in the past they've given people the opportunity to upgrade to the AirPods Pros for a fixed fee, though with the 2nd gen AirPods being phased out they may want to only shift those instead.
I suppose, yes. But it doesn’t really explain why they’re charge more for some colours, on machines of the same spec.
I guess it fits the remit of it being for students. Sell the cheaper models with a bigger discount and at least get people into the ecosystem over buying a windows alternative.

mind linking yellow on there? i cant find it
Though at the EDU store you get a 4yr warranty, and 3yrs at the academia store. So if you wanted the higher spec or other colours, it’s probably worth the extra few quid to get the long warranty from academia rather than direct.
Excellent condition to be honest! Original Box, charger and even came in the original plastic packaging etc. All manuals and stickers are there - no scratches, dents on the MacBook - only signs of use were that the power cable was unpackaged. Otherwise everything is pristine (y)
What's the condition of the laptop?
Ordered yesterday morning, arrived 7am today (y)
I'm not suggesting they will limit the functionality to the M1 models, just that they will run those applications better.
Technically if they allowed that to happen for the 2021 M1 I don’t think it would go down well that at least the 2020 version wouldn’t get the same support, going by the one before is from 2018 I doubt that would get it though.
If the SSD fails when? In a few years? Who knows what aftermarket solutions will be in place. Ssd maybe an issue in 4-8 years I read by then I'm sure they'll be a market to.repair them if it is.. so on that basis are you really that worried about the ssd? Life's to short to live in fear In terms of backing up the official way us to use time machine, but their are other solutions.
Do you have to go through any more checks once you put the email address in ?
I'm not sure i only had a quick look.
oh crap :(
i can only find US student email account... what have you found?

Depends, what you mean by "software development". If you work on iOS/MacOS development with Xcode, it's good. If you work on Python/js etc scripting and you don't have enormous datasets it's fine, if you require to launch VMs either for compilers or to simulate servers/services, you need more RAM, and it has to be VMs that can run on ARM, if you are in Android development, Android Studio currently is about 2x slower than an intel Mac (runs under Rosetta 2, not native yet - except the simulator which would otherwise not work at all).
Not a deal, regular price
Is this good enough for software development?
Yes it is! Incredible to see that. Although the description does say 27" screen lol!
