I was just about to write how much I love my cheap Mac mini, M1 is great but it only has 8gb RAM and can feel little slow when I'm working with photos and having YouTube in the background, but still I am playing Pathfinder now maxed with good FPS and that makes me happy.

If I was more invested in photography I'd love an iPhone 13 Pro, but I settled for the 13 as there's it does everything I want.

Maybe when I win the lottery I'll get the full works as far as tech setup goes.

This doesn’t surprise me one bit. It should, but it doesn’t given the stories I’ve heard, especially about PS5 and Xbox consoles. And iPhones are easier to steal than those.

Hopefully Amazon send a replacement out soon.

And I believe with high value items they record the SN, so hopefully the device gets marked as stolen and banned.

That sucks so much!

That is also my biggest fear when it comes time for my deck delivery.
Still no phone. They told me to wait until 8 PM today to file a report.

Yeah, I've been buying with Amazon since 8 years ago and the most expensive order is the one that coincidently gets 'lost' lol

Finally was able to report it. Supposedly they're investigating now, although I haven't received any email yet.

This really sucks. Your experience makes me not want to shop at Amazon, to be honest.
Oh I won't be buying from them anytime soon, that's for sure. Already cancelled my GT7 and Triangle Strategy preorders. Shame, I wanted that steelbook,

Well, I was issued a refund. Probably still doesn't process because Apple denied my card so...I'll take it as a sign and I'll buy it in person later.

Sorry to hear that mate, that really sucks!

I'd argue not to use Amazon anyway but wont shame anyone for doing so; but having stuff stolen by their delivery people is just crap.

@pertti I hope that the Deck is still obscure enough to not get stolen. (same hope goes for phishing emails btw).

£1999 for a device like that is not terrible. Surprised they didn't also offer an M1 Pro model, but that may be priced too close to the Mac mini to make that device compelling.

I'm getting flashbacks of the trashcan inasmuch as Apple are trying to convince pro users that small form factor PCs are the way forward, but I expect people with the most serious workloads will be waiting for the Mac Pro.

I really could see myself getting the studio max. Unless Mac mini M2 comes out before I could even be able to.

while the new screen seems really nice! I would just stick to my gaming screen .

Honestly Steam is the only thing preventing me from switching completely to Mac. I enjoy my Apex Legends.

But once I get a Deck on my hands, bye bye dedicated gaming PC.

The more I think about it the price for Studio Max is pretty reasonable, not only do you get really good work computer but you also get PS5ish gaming capability(if it was optimised for the m1 max).
