They won't be shipping to me. What a hideous design. And a notch in a laptop, but no Face ID? Are you kidding me??? Look how quickly they are rolling back the terrible design decision around the Safari tab colouring. Hardware design decisions are not so easily reversed. They need to get Ive back ASAP before they do something terminal.
reee! wipe your tears away with a $19.99 cloth x

Of course the saving grace will be the incredible M1 Pro and M1 Max, and for these alone I predict the laptops will sell well. If you are desperately waiting for yours I hope you don't have to wait too long!
You got more vertical screen out of the deal. It's in an area of the screen you don't use. The Notch is so much nothing.

Agreed! I was horrified at the idea when the rumors of the notch first surfaced, but when I found out the aspect ratio was preserved in full screen mode, that the menubar went alongside the notch, and the mouse went behind, I was much less upset about it.
