Thanks for sharing. Which Apple product did you get?
Did you have to wait 48 hours after verification email?
I actually had to wait more than 48 hours (it should have worked on Friday afternoon, 48 hours after my Wednesday afternoon registration, but it didn't actually work until Saturday at 8 am Toronto time). Fortunately, it eventually worked.
I got a Mac Mini (cheapest M1 version), plus a network switch and USB flash drives to put it over the $1000. (to get the entire $250 savings) One can spend less than $1,000, but it wouldn't be optimal to do so!
I actually wanted to wait for the updated Mac Mini (with M1X or M2 chip, to have more RAM, faster CPU, etc.), but I got tired of waiting, so I just went with the cheapest one to get my feet wet. I'll spend more on the next update, and relegate this purchase to secondary usage, in a different room of my house, etc.
My other option was to get a NAS device, but with Chia driving hard disk prices higher, I'll wait.
