awkward. what is the remedy there, can they ship it out to you?
Just seeing this- no. Laptop is still stuck. Have to wait until the store opens.and apparently they don’t do ‘loaner’ laptops either

My trashcan Mac Pro died today. And out of Applecare. Time to change I think. Probably a Mac Mini; the new iMacs are okay but I already have two decent monitors

I recently got a spec'd out 2020 iMac (like four days ago recently), and am really enjoying it. I opted for the Nano screen, which is a huge difference to me now that I'm WFH and my poor eyes were sensitive sitting in front of a monitor all day versus in person. The 5700 XT 16 GB card is blazing, too, for a Mac. I opted for this last run of Intels, since I enjoy running bootcamp with a touch of gamer in my blood. Quite a price increase from the minis to bear in mind, of course.

I heard there is an April or so release of the new MBP. No more 13”, now 14” standard. Not that I care, I use external monitors about 95% of the time these days.

Scissor switch Air has finally arrived. My nightmare is over

I had a Macbook Pro since 2016, when they changed to the awful butterfly keyboard. This was my first Mac and I actually hated it the whole time, not realizing why. I just traded it in for a Macbook Air after reading about how they went back to the scissor mechanism and it is truly life-changing. The Air also is perfect for everything I do (MS Office applications, surfing the web), and relatively inexpensive. Highly recommend.

Yea, I bought one of the new laptops. The L key sometimes malfunctions, but it's a huge improvement over the butterfly. I still have that butterfly laptop, which I use on occasion, and the experience is night and day.

I'm happy to have my old Apple experience back, but admittedly that butterfly thing left a bad taste in my mouth.

Got a mac mini. My first brush with the T2 chip was not good, as it blocks the software raid driver from loading. Also migration of my old data killed the internet - the connection was still good, but the browsers etc couldn't reach it. So after an hour on chat support, I had to erase the drive, reinstall and not migrate.
