I hear you and I generally share that opinion, except I need a laptop now.
It's not just a matter of being bleeding edge, I actually need a device in
I'm just glad I didn't actually get an Air 3 months ago, because it looks
like those have been pretty thoroughly obsoleted. OTOH maybe they'll deep
discount them just to clear out remaining inventory, and I'm sure one of
those would be satisfactory for my needs as well.
I think it might as well be the M1. I'll let y'all know how it goes.

I think more like a 'bleed edge' cool kid...
I'd never buy a v1 of anything anymore... not after the first intel iMac
years ago. I always bought the 's' model iPhones as they had sorted the
issues with the hardware at that point...
(still not running iOS 14 yet...)

SlashGear: MacBook Air M1 Quick Look: unbelievable results.
I found "trendsetter" funny, when, just one short human generation ago,
Macs were running an obsolete OS on an obsolete CPU with funky port
compatibility and a problem with app availability.
How the world turns.
Fwiw you may recall my recent question about how much I'd hate windows.
The verdict after a month of use is that, for what I do, which is almost
strictly web based anymore, it's fine. I was annoyed with pairing some BT
headphones but day to day it's fine.
Nevertheless I think I'm going to get one of these "trendsetting" M1
airbooks on Black Friday and be a cool kid again.
