Buying the Apple 16.2-inch MacBook Pro with M1 Max at Apple Orchard Road in Singapore

Having just landed wee past 8am, local time, we headed first to our hotel on Orchard Road, as per the usual, and checked in to relax and rest up before heading...out across the street!
Haha, yes, as crazy as it sounds our hotel was right across from the flagship Apple store, which is also conveniently next to Takashimaya/Ngee Ann City and Paragon (again, across the street). Just a block down and you reach CK Tangs/Marriott and ION mall.  All our shopping needs, nicely packed in a short-distance, utterly safe, and many many malls and food courts as well.
Well over 100 people lined up for the iPhone 14
More Apple sheep after iPhones, which seemed to be the greatest attraction
I was hoping they would have the 64GB / 2TB model in stock, but alas,  settled on the 4TB unit.  This was going to be my mobile Rust compiling station after all.  Like a good sheep, I was saying "take my money Mr. Cook!".
All SGD10,000 which also included an Apple 12.9-inch iPad Pro Wi-Fi + Cellular 512GB - Space Grey + Pencil
Very expensive sand and metal concoction...
Really liking the new split-view feature, this is going to be super handy with two tmux sessions side-by-side.
