    Charlie - where did you find that note?
    Was it something that Apple published?

    It seemed until now when Widgets came up on Catalina the reply was either what ferrarr posted or if one asked about...

    You keep asking about the future - how this Mac will operate 4, 5,8 and 10 years out with apps and websites at that time.
    Nobody knows - I think it will be just fine, certainly in the 4-5 year time...

    I use Firefox, have my browser set up to show google as my home page, but every once in a while I still get the about:blank in the address bar.

    I wonder what UL would have to say about that.

    PS: However, I have come across info that some authorized repair centres for APC UPSs will replace the standard power cord with a 12 foot one....

    French should be no problem for anyone with just these few terms which are similar to English.
    Unless you have done some upgrades, this Mac will have a spinner hard drive (HDD) not an SSD and also...

    You never mentioned which specific UPS you have.
    Do the instructions with the one you have actually tell you not to use an extension cord?
    And if so, how are those instructions worded?

    What I see as the screenshot are essentially the specs and options on a 2012 Mac, not what you actually have.

    I see this:

    If you want to minimize your cost right now, another option may be to get a refurb 2015 MBa like this one and plan to use it for four years:
    Refurbished MacBook Air 13.3-inch Glossy from PS599...

    The OP must be totally confused by now with these replies ;)

    ...yes
    ...no
    ...a definite 'maybe'

    Take your pick ;D

    On that note, for that 2020 MBa the OP is looking at, I would go for the i5 version if it's only $100.- more and also very seriously consider upgrading it to 16GB of RAM.

    That is not my actual experience with my 2012 Mini at all.

    Based on my experience with my 2012 Mini I would have to agree with Randy, except....
    I upgraded from macOS 10.8 the OS the Mini came with to 10.11 and now to 10.14, six versions of the macOS
    and...
  13. I haven't done any more investigation on this...

    I haven't done any more investigation on this 25GB disappearing, but based on the recent threads, discussions and articles on the pros and cons of HFS+ and APFS, I think the 25GB disappearing might...

    In the original post, the OP is asking about a MBa i3 - these ar all 2020 models, there is no older MBa i3
    So the question is would a 2020 MBa i3 last for 8 to 10 years.

    Well, most laptop spinner drives were 5400 RPM drives; I have a 5400 HDD in my Mini and had no problem with that most times.
    Now that I switched to an SSD the boot times are faster and launching...

    I came across a very current article on APFS that I hink is quite good - clear and precise.
    Should APFS Be Used on All Disk Types?

    Since Apple still offers the new iMac, both 21.5-inch and...

    Is Apple actually shipping out the latest 2019 iMacs with spinner drives and Catalina (using APFS)?

    Sure looks like it when I check the Apple Store.
  18. Are you suggesting that the MBa the OP is asking...

    Are you suggesting that the MBa the OP is asking about would be obsolete in a year or two?
    That seems awfully pessimistic.

    If I was looking for a computer to just last me a year or two I would go...

    I would definitely say "Yes"

    The 2012 MacMini I'm using right now is my oldest active Mac, going on 8 years and the current macOS is still supported on it.

    Don't think so - Bernard is running Mojave and he has the problem.

    The "up to 20 minute" boot up time of Catalina from a backup i s way beyond my tolerance level.
    I would probably have shut down my Mac at the 5 minute point and tried again.

    A short while ago I...

    Seemed like a logical thing to try.
    Bernard first post sounds as if he could change the view until he did something with TM.

    Just another input -
    I'm running Mojave (10.14.6) on a late 2012 Mini on an external SSD and I have no problem switching back and forth between the All Devices and Volumes Only option.

    I don't...

    Thanks for posting this, Randy

    What it tells me is not to upgrade to Catalina at all until some of these issues are sorted out.

    I didn't really look that closely at Catalina as an upgrade from...

    How is this "stuck"?
    Is the option to "Only show volumes" dimmed out?
    I'm on Mojave, 10.14.6 and I can switch back and forth between All Devices and Volumes Only
