    • first mac i bought. The value is there. Use case aligns well with my needs. I write code, don't need insane graphics, do need fast compile, and don't want to stress about battery or burn my lap.

  • Apple needs to bring Aperture back, imagine how much better it would run on the M1 devices to come compared to Lightroom.

  • I feel like m1 is were intel should be. Apple isn't ahead their just were I really thing Intel should be right now. The reason for all the thermal issues this far is because Intel told Apple their expected power/thermal budgets. Apple plans ahead and well it didn't work out. Now we will see Apple really going beyond were Intel is/was supposed to be. I can't believe that the M1s performance cores are slightly faster than AMDs latest chips 5xxx. I'm really excited to see where we are here in 4 or so years. I expect AMD will pass Apple in performance but will start to becomes way more power hungry.

  • watching this for the second time, 7 weeks after daily driving this as my only machine. 1) Still can't believe how fast this machine is, like it's not suppose to be this good. 2) Big Sur is buggy as hell. My biggest complaint is ports. I'd like one more USB-C and one more USB-A and one more HDMI. I imagine Mac Mini Pro will carry this, so next upgrade I guess.

  • After seeing all of the stellar reviews on YT I went out and got the low-end M1 Mac Mini and I have to say - it's really not performing well. There is no question the CPU is fast, but this is the first time in like 20 years I've had a machine ask me to quit apps because the OS ran out of memory. I get the spinning beach ball frequently, it's slow to mount thunderbolt drives and getting two monitors working consistently is problematic. Big thumbs down for me.

    • You should get the macbook pro or air. The pro one is definitely better than the air but i dont think 1300 bucks worth for the pro. The air only 1000 bucks and it keeps up with the pro. I think you should get the macbook air, its lighter and almost same as powerful as the macbook pro

    • Maybe you should wait for next year 2021 or 2022. Rumours said that macbook pro 16 inch will come with the m1 chip. And it will so much better than these macs in 2020. Rumours said that in 2022, apple will release all of their products with their own chip. No more intel, no more amd. So maybe you should wait for the next year macbook models

  • Unfortunately the entire M1 line + Big Sur is right now big fail for music producers, since most of the stuff doesn’t even work right now. Not even via backcompat. Intel machines still run most VSTs with better efficiency and many DAWs and plugins will probably not see the day of light on M1 at all, without further need of purchasing the newer versions sometime in 2021. While video editing is usually done with one main program like Final Cut music creation uses normally way more 3rd party or straight up non-apple DAWs and other VSTs. Even HW incompatibility is present now with ANY Native Instruments HW and that is huge dealbraker for at least 6 more months. BEWARE! Oh, btw, if the emulation is stressed on some cpu heavy vsts, the battery life doesn’t even reach what intel macbook pros offer right now. Video editing does not require good realtime performance but music production does. So having rosetta2 trying to help is really not ideal and basically a letdown in many instances. Video performance is completely irrelevant in this case and also export performance. That is synced batch process and not real-time process.

The fact that you are not able to use it as a media player, to have full support (4k, HDR, Dolby, etc.) is the reason I did not buy one in 2018 and will not buy one in 2020. I know there is apple tv (I have 2) however the form factor and the power the device has would make it perfect HTPC.

I have been waiting for years for such a device. I sold off my MacBook Pro and iPad Pro and switched to 17” Razer and surface pro7 earlier this year. Trying to get away from the Apple universe for more options as you said in the video.
