It’s absurd that people say the M1 is great for “common tasks” when it’s literally 2x faster than a MacBook Pro from only 4 years ago.

Would be so tempting with ram and storage that could support actual work “pro” ?
I’m going to try to abstain from commenting on Apple’s ridiculous piddly storage configurations from now on. We all know. They know we know. We know they know we know. Etc., etc…

I gotta say I bought MacBook Air m1 8/256 and I can still use Xcode just fine and do everything I need and fast.
Zero regrets. Still a great machine. The RAM isn't an issue for me, but the storage is. I have to use external hard drives.
