Also need a iBM Contact in the GTA, they told me they have a new way of verifying small businesses and I couldn't use my home address.

It looks like IBM is being more strict with small business / employee contact info. Got my m5 last week. In mint condition with charge count of 3. My wife loves the m3 I got her as well.

I got the following accessories to go with it:

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B06X3Q ... UTF8&psc=1
https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01CHH ... UTF8&psc=1
https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01M0J ... UTF8&psc=1

Last link (extra charger) is a great deal at under $10. It's got bad reviews because it's rated for 36W but the chip inside is programmed wrong and can supply a lot more which is a safety (heat) problem if you have a Macbook Pro but a great charger for Macbook 12 or smartphones which doesn't pull more than the rated output.

Any real life difference for you between M3 and M5?

thanks!

Benchmarks point to less than 10% performance difference between the two and I would have to agree - it is hardly noticeable in real life. I got m5 mainly because I needed the extra storage for work.

The reviews I've read said the m5 is much better than the m3.

I wondered if ravpower fixed their charger. It usually get really good reviews. Aukey not so much aside from the ones that were paid for.

Tell them you are an educator. It has worked for many.

Yes I likely read the same reviews. I can only give my own impression from using both side-by-side over the last week. Again, I didn't use any benchmarks - just how it feels from day to day use.

Yeah I usually buy Anker exclusively but if you understand limitation/bug with this charger, it's a great deal. Just don't plug laptops that use tons of power (XPS 13, Macbook Pro, etc), and you should be fine. The charger barely gets warm with my Macbook 12 plugged into it.

how many of these reviewers actually used both side by side?
benchmark testing is really the best way to truly test two models
