Is it something normal on new MacBook Air or should I return it and get another one?
First time Mac user.
It's somewhat normal when you first get the computer as it's indexing for Spotlight (the Mac's internal search function). Screen brightness is also something that can affect battery life. My MacBook battery drains pretty quickly if I'm video conferencing.

But I'm pretty sure it's the indexing if it's a brand new Mac. Should see improvement in the next few days. If not, contact Applecare.

There's also an app called Coconut Battery (https://coconut-flavour.com/coconutbattery/) that will tell you how healthy your battery is and how many cycles it has on it. It's a fantastic tool.

Yes, and that would be 2021 (so say the rumours). So far, it might only be the 12.9" as none of the rumours talk about the 11" Pro.

It used to be like Ampli where you link a credit card and they give you points for scraping your purchase history.

But it's pivoted more toward ebates where if you use their referral link to shop online then they give you points which you can use for gift cards. Or you sign up for services. I think I've gotten over $600 worth of gift cards so far (with spouse).

Drop has a extra points promo until July 15th where you get 75 points (instead of 15) per $1 you spend at Apple. So if you spend $2,000 then you get 150,000 points which is good for $150 in Starbucks or Amazon gift cards.

There's also a $5 sign up referral. I'm assuming I cannot solicit such a referral here...

Pretty nuts that they are backlogged a month for a product released ~3 months ago. I didn’t know the demand was this strong for these (maybe exacerbated by COVID shutdowns in China). The AirPods shipped within 3 hours though.

Also shopped via the Drop link. Hope I get the bonus points.
Have any of you received the points from this drop 7.5 promo?

They are yes. But not coming until early 2021, at earliest per Kuo (seasoned apple hardware and supply chain analyst)

I second this. Its a great tool and can check iDevices as well as your laptop battery

I probably no longer qualify, since I changed the credit card I paid with before it shipped, as my card offered me 10% cash back, which ended up being a better deal. Not sure about others.

Here is my proof you can return the Airpods. This was 3 weeks ago so no idea if they are cracking down. But it was super easy for me. No questions asked.

My experience:
Bought some mall gift cards at discount (AMEX promo). Went in to Apple store to buy Apple gift card.
With airmiles 10X promotion a couple of days ago, order online ipad pro 11. Used the gift card online. Available for pick up the next day. No student ID check needed and picked up with no issues.
Hopefully, the airmiles go though. $50 worth of airmiles.

Nope not yet. I'm just a couple days away from the 80 day deadline before I can make a customer service request. I think I've done this every year with Drop/Air Miles for large points payouts.

They count on users to forget or give up.

If I place an order for delivery am I able to change to pickup option when it comes in stock? Or will I have to cancel and place a new order?

I didn’t bother to figure this out. Would be too much hassle and the in stock sell out very quickly. They only charged me for the AirPods since only the AirPods were shipped. So I just placed another in stock order and returned the AirPods when I picked up the iPad and the AirPods on the 2nd order
