I’ll wait. They’re already producing M2 chips, right?
And once they reveal the M2 and you place your order you'll realize they're producing M3 chips.

And of course, the same handful of shills, with the same ridiculous looks of surprise on their faces. Rinse, repeat.

I'm glad they showed the unboxing just to show it's just like unboxing previous iPad models. Solid work.
I, myself, enjoy unboxing videos. What I don’t understand is how some vloggers will unbox the same device/hardware but with different colors. Was it necessary for iJustine to be sent EVERY color of the iMac to unbox? No.

What’s even worse is when some vloggers will do a video of two or more unboxings of the same device, and the only difference between them are the internals.

"Hey, everyone. This is TechNet, and today we are going to be doing a couple of unboxings. I have here the Space Gray M1 MacBook Air base model -- AND I'm also unboxing another Space Gray base M1 MacBook Air, but this one is completely different. This one has 16gb of ram!"
