I watched the keynote and saw the graphs, the battery life, the instant wake. And they got me. I started to think, how could one of these new M1-powered MacBooks make their way into my life?

Of course, I didn't need one but I kept wondering what story could I tell myself to justify purchasing another computer? Then I had it. My 16-inch MacBook Pro is too heavy to carry around all the time. Yeah, that'll do. This 2.0 kg aluminium powerhouse is too much to be galavanting.

shiny new M1 MacBook (or two). My 16-inch MacBook is too heavy to lug around to cafes and write code, words, edit videos and check emails sporadically.

And Apple seems to think their new M1 chip is 11x, 15x, 12x, 3x faster on a bunch of different things. Thought-provoking numbers but I've never measured any of these in the past.

The last word of the previous sentence is the most important. I've become conditioned. Speed is a part of me now. Ever since the transition from hard drives to solid state drives. And I'm not going back.

I bought the 16-inch in February 2020. I'd just completed a large project and was flush with cash, so I decided to future proof my work station. Since I edit videos daily and hate lag, I opted for the biggest dawg I could buy and basically maxed everything except for the storage (see the specs below).
