I have ordered a new M1 Air which will be arriving... in a few weeks. Crying

In the meantime, has anyone used the "scan" method to import resources? If so, did you run into any glitches or hiccups?

what specs did you get? I have the 8/256 but I am torn about what combination of 8 and 16, 256 and 512 would be best... or even just sending it back and waiting to see what comes in the next 6–12 months or so.

I always drive myself crazy over decisions like this.

I agree. I did some memory tests (https://community.logos.com/forums/t/196476.aspx?PageIndex=1) and the 8GB M1 handles things just fine. I prefer the 528GB or 256GB, but I chose not to expand further, since my MacBook Air will be a limited use machine for Logos and Proclaim only, and Photoshop, Final Cut, etc, on my MacBook Pro 16".

What is the scan method, if you don't mind me asking?

It's a command to import the resources from a previous Logos installation or backup so you don't need to redownload all your resources again.

Type scan <path to Resources folder> in the Command Bar
