Anyone Buying M1 MacBook Pro, Air, or Mini?

Well, tried to boot the old 15" MBP the other day and she wouldn't load...OSX or Windoze. Not sure what's up, but its time to replace. Didn't want to spend a ton on a laptop ATM, so I picked up an open-box M1 Air (8c/8c, 8GB, 512GB, space grey) from Best Buy this evening. Figure it'll get me by for a year or two, and the portability will be a nice added benefit.

I will add figuring out how to make a bootable clone remains useful. It seems that there is an issue where the M1 will suddenly not take your password.

"You typed it wrong!"

No. I will spare the suggestions on how to fix this problem since all I had to do was boot from the External SSD and, 30 seconds later, the problem was solved.

"Back-up early and often" remains the best advice.
