But who is going to buy those? probably someone living in a cave ? ? ?
The vast majority of casual users have no idea that Apple released ARM macs or what that even means. These will sell well. They’re still good machines at a good price.

Good luck selling those. Poor resellers left with inventory. Literally poor, in some cases.

BTW, this is why the new and old ones look the same. Granny Myrna walking into a MediaMarkt to buy a 2020 Macbook Air would be delighted to see lower prices.

Edit: just looked at my favourite online store. They're trying to sell the Intel ones at higher price (1249 vs 1139 for 8/256 GB). The models are nicely scrambled on the page, all of them saying 2020, the processor only mentioned in the description. Thoughts and prayers, guys.
