A little, but not really. A couple days ago, I bought a used 2012 MacBook Pro (A1278) for $175. It's legit a nice laptop.
i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM (upgradable to 16), Nvidia GPU, 500GB SSD, running Catalina.
Fast enough for media creation, picture organization, and web browsing. The only thing I'm envious of is the battery life of a new ARM Mac.
I literally saved over $1,300 just because I'm willing to plug my laptop in once in a while, and go get a cup of coffee when I render something.
I'll buy a 1st-gen M1 as soon as Apple stops sending it OS updates in a few years, because some idiot will think it's useless for no reason.
