    MacBook Pro M1

    I just picked up a MacBook Pro, 16gb ram, 2TB HD. Running the new M1 chip. I've been a Mac user for 25+ years, but WOW!!! This is the best computer I've ever owned. Highly recommended. $2400 with tax. Well worth it.

    Yes. M1 is only in 13 inch. I run 3 monitors, so I'll only use the screen when traveling

    16 is too big for use on a plane. I had a bigger screen MacBook Pro and gave it to my wife and downsized to a MacBook Air which I used for the last 8 years. It was time for a upgrade, and the M1 is a hell of a upgrade
