[mention]gnirkatto [/mention] I feel your pain. For my M2 MacBook Air, 16GiB of RAM and a 256GB SSD, it cost me $1838.45 (academic price, including GST and PST [total tax 15.47%]). That amounts to 1255.24€.

What threw me off is the currency, so I assumed United States of America.

I ususally convert in USD, to make it easier for the non-Europeans who roam around here ;-)

I just got a MBA 13.6” M2 8/8/8/256 (2022) yesterday in midnight. The color is gorgeous but what a finger print magnet it is waiting on my clear case to arrive tomorrow!

I also have a MBP-R 15” (early 2013) which is no longer getting updates and certain things I needed the computer to do it couldn’t because the software is older.

I’m really happy with the smaller model, it’ll be more portable without weighting a ton I also went with less storage because I don’t plan on uploading my iTunes or photo library to it, which will save 100gb of not being used

Congratulations!

I’m mostly satisfied with my MacBook Air. The only pain point comes from iCloud Drive, where I lost 70GB worth of files (academic VMs) that I wanted to move to at-home storage.

macOS just kept trying again and crashing with a full drive. Then try again, with no option to cancel. Even Windows was struggling, but at least Apple has provided a cancel button on that platform.

☺️Thank you, I'm real happy with it. Honestly, the past couple of days I've just been using it to play around ie. watch Tv, music, iMessage, email etc. In another week or so I'll prepare my taxes thru TT on it.

Wow, 70 gigs. That's a lot of info to be processed so I can see why its crashing...but that does suck👎🏽
