When I play with a new Mac in a store I am conscious that the devices are clean and that they are likely to be quicker than in normal daily use.
I had a couple of minutes with the M1 MacBook Air and M1 MacBook Pro and… Woah!
The difference between these and my 12-inch 2017 MacBook is huge. The instant loading of apps and the immediate always on when pulling up the lid really did shock me, even though I am aware of the hype surrounding these new Macs.
They are remarkable and the first products to make my eyes go wide in many years.
