    I use a lot of music making software on a mac, and nothing is going to work with the M1, and Big Sur for quite a while. I am almost done with apple, and I am thinking about going over to Linux exclusively. I have noticed that music software is really coming along in Linux, and I love Bigwig Pro. I don't understand the cultish behavior of some Mac Users it is just a tool for me, and I would use any platform that worked the best for me, and Mac has always been the easiest for me, but I don't know if it is worth it anymore.

    • adalaza

      Linux isn't brilliant yet, a number of drivers need to be developed. GPU is the Achilles heel, you're limited to software rendering right now... Android is significantly down the road unless Cupertino is interested in helping out FOSS. If you're OK with using MacOS for the length of the device's support or a year or two, it's likely the platform will be a lot more mature.

    To be fair to Linus amid the apparent onslaught of Apple fans, Apple has done a pretty good job of making it such that you're either a fan or you're a hater. Because if you're not with them, you're against them, and people love jumping on board that ship. I personally am not a fan of Apple, and it really has nothing to do with their products (I mean, controlling hardware and software allows for far better optimization than Microsoft can achieve with Windows) and EVERYTHING to do with how they manage their company and have historically interacted and attempted to monopolize dealings with software partners (even if the latter has improved some over the last decade). I also have a distaste for the pared-down style interface, but that has more to do with my personal taste than anything, even when it comes to who/what students/professionals I think should buy into iOS vs Windows.

    8 core to 8 core, or else when doing a single core, you must use both threads on intel and AMD to make it fair.

  • Tigerex966

    You have extremely low expectations, no upgradeability ever, no egpu support, no repairability ever, and soso compatibility. No Boot camp. No 32 bit code. no true windows mode. No OSX version, but Big Sur that means osx 10 all the way to Big sur, about 15 different versions, and you can only use one. And cost a mint to add 8gb for $200. Only 2.7 Teraflops for graphics or 256gb more ssd is $200, 1 TB $400, 2TB you might as well bring $2000, and Apple keeps your base 256GB SSD for another sucker.. However the machine learning, AI, rendering, decoding, encoding DSPS for all of the various formats by special computational hardware software combos, is excellent. Not the fastest at single core or multicore, but very good for the price if you stay away from the 16GB 1 and 2 TB systems, which are not as big of a bargain as the base models, because of apples greed on non upgradeable memory and storage.

    Used digital storm the people Linus loves, after a couple months the parts started breaking down and would reset three times a day. I finally sent it back after the digital storm cpu fan completely failed and the system shut down. I lost all my data from a fatal system crash. Never had that problem with my windows laptop or any apple computer I’ve ever purchased. Bought one of the most expensive workstations digital storm had and waited almost two months to get it. Apple is gearing up to wipe out all of the “custom high end” computer companies because they are better I gave your people a fair chance but these built computers are not worth the headache or cost. You don’t save money or time with these custom built systems and the system will crash to often for you to get the performance. You want to hate apple because there taking over the computer industry not because of the product. They are better, fast, have great service and trade in options and they have now apple has just created a economical product that nobody can beat price wise or efficiency wise. Give credit we’re credit is do apple is the best computer company by far. RIP custom built systems

    I know this is a mini review. However, a year ago I bought the 16 inch MacBook Pro after waiting years, and I am glad I did because the recent announce would still have me waiting. I watched one fanboy review that explained how snappy app launch is on the M1 laptops. I watched how the Chrome icon bounced multiple times before the actual app appeared. On my MacBook pro, Chrome is fully launched before the Chrome icon is able to complete one full bounce. (e.g. < 1 sec). When you compare the Intel and Apple laptops in the future, please provide specs on the SSD and memory because Apple has been guilty of using low quality components in Intel Macs. My 16 inch Mac seems to be the first Mac where the components were not multiple revisions behind what could be found in Windows systems. Lastly, an old trick is to build processors that are designed to do very well in benchmarks. General purpose results will normally be less than that. I will also say I am using Matlab 2020 and VSCode along with other tools, and I rarely hear my fan.

    This is exactly the result of huge investment in R & D. Talk shit about huge apple products margins or not. This is the exact reason why corps Like Intel , Nvidia , Apple. Revolutionize the industry. While other companies like AMD, samsung and other chinese brand just sell things for quick by just increasing unncessary numbers like. RAM VRAM MP GB QHD UHD. Every single time we have seen Big companies change the industries. as seen in mobile devices, laptops, Automobile, Watch, Headphones. What you want to spend money on is your choice.

    I think Apple needs 16 GPU cores on a mac pro 13' and minimum 36GPU on Mini. M1 is a good processor for Ipad and mac air. I expected better graphics for games because most of the users who switch PCs each year are Medium/Light Gamers. The switch to ARM with only 8 Graphics Units it is not attractive to make the change today, better wait for more 6 months. Better choose AMD with higher specs at the same range price.

    • P M

      @Aditya Bhattacharya I made some math, with 16 GPU core mac will be better the Xbox series S, for series X will need 36 cores to be equal. like I sad mac pro 13 deserve 16 GPU core because the cooler can handle fine with more 8 cores and more 15/19 watts. The mini will be the best with minimum 36 cores GPU, the power today of the mini can handle fine until 56GPU cores like xbox X (the intel processor use the same cooling and consume much more). This will be the best cenario. Today Apple has 10% market share, so to make the new step they need bring the game market to Mac. (this considering that Apple uses the same envelope as the M1) Considering this Apple Air is the best now, Pro and Mini sucks.

  • lookoutforchris

    Look at the cope in this video. The non-apology is hilarious. This guy says there was nothing to back it up at launch... so I guess he hadn’t seen the already released A14 geekbench scores? The M1 uses A14 cores but higher TDP, so the performance should be a bit better. Anyone who actually follows the chip industry already knew the A14 beat every intel processor in single core. Apple’s claims on the M1 were only a slight stretch from the A14 numbers. Really the only unknown was how many cores and what TDP. It also only took a very short while for actual M1 benchmarks to come out, maybe wait for data before making pronouncements and maintain a bit of humility. Lame take.

      ​@Julien Lindauer I understand your point of view. The thing is… Well clearly they didn't want to drive down their margin. So I guess they aren't expecting the device to be successful. Retooling would cost less but only if you sell enough units to justify the cost. They clearly don't want to sell this.

    • Julien Lindauer

      @viraltaco I think it's more cost-effective to leave the case unchanged, since it doesn't require to change the production line and the additional costs from having to re-engineer the inside. But an even smaller Mac mini would be sexy.

    • viraltaco

      @Julien Lindauer It has no place in a desktop computer. In fact i'm pretty sure Apple agrees since they've manages to make a desktop which is 90% air. Steve Jobs would have never let that pass. If there was wasted space it would have been utilized or reduced, almost to a fault. It's not just a matter of laziness. It negatively affects EVERY SINGLE step of distribution. This air is costing Apple tens of millions a year. (I'd do the maths but if Apple can't be bothered I'm not gonna bother either) It's a hole in their pocket. Which is literally the last thing they needed given their dreathful financials in 2020.

    Okay, let me share my two cents on this as a fellow UNIX/Linux user. From what I have seen right now the OS is way worse than a KDE Plasma with Latte Dock - and I did the ultimate test here by asking my Mrs. which 'Mac' she would buy and she likes my Linux GUI more, saying that the actual Mac OS looks too complicated . Now let's talk hardware for a bit. 4 'performance cores' and 4 'efficiency cores' are either the same bollocks that I have in my $200 budget smartphone from the 'evil' Chinese company called Huawei or just this hyperthreading thing where I have 4 actually fully featured cores whilst there is 4 more cores without an FPU, so I won't really recommend to run anything on these... So what this really comes down to is a $65 Raspberry Pi 4B 8GB in a MacBook 'Pro' case with an ugly GUI for over twice the price of an Lenovo ThinkPad E595 with 32GB RAM and two SSDs, one of which being an NVMe one. I don't know about you guys but in Germany we call this full on FRAUD. Yes my friends, full on FRAUD, that's what it is! So my suggestion to solve this issue: Either keep your 'old' X86 Mac or get yourself the cheapest Lenovo Laptop there is, get some cool stickers to put on the back and install Linux. And if you want an actually very stylish beyond Apple look and feel I would suggest Hefftor Linux Plasma which just happened to have released a new version which you can download under . Welcome to 2021!

  • JohnD

    Apple's marketing was a mistake. The Mac mini had a lot of issues and for me the performance was a huge disappointment. I know that with optimized applications it has a lot of potential, but the numbers in practice are not even close of what Apple said. They lied. The last Big Sur update solved my issues with the displays, but I still don't see a huge performance increase in the apps I use every day comparing to my MacBook Pro from 2014. The performance difference with an almost 7 year old laptop should be huge, but it is not there, and most apps work at the same speed.

    2:53 NOPE. Mult-Stream Transport doesn't work on macOS to drive multiple displays! Apple sucks with this, and MST only works for their 5K/6K monitors to drive single display through 2 DisplayPort lines. I have Thunderbolt Dell WB19TB dock and - no luck with MST. At company when we've got MacBooks Pro - still no luck - we had to switch docking stations to ones with DisplayLink. Just because Apple is stupid enough not to write proper code for MST over last 10 years which they even claim (!!!!) they support (because MST is since DisplayPort 1.2 and they claim they support it, but… nah… not correctly)

    It wasn’t overly vague, they didn’t throw the m1 in a Mac Pro and say it’s best and fastest thing ever. it’s in apples low end machines, the mini and air. So naturally anyone with a brain would understand that those machines are still competing in that same tier. NOT HIGH END DESKTOPS!!
