The Macbook with M1 chip is... different. Time to think a little different about laptops.

  • @ people commenting here, in your opinion, would it be worth it for me to get the m1 mac rn? My current mac is an older mac air model and it's battery barely works anymore LMAO (on replay now and I can't take it off the charger for more than an hour), so I need a new one soon. I'm debating on getting the discounted intel one bc it's cheaper, but if this one is a lot better, I'd rather do that I think. The only program I really use on it rn is final cut pro, if that makes a difference. Sometimes garageband.

  • How many game devs are going to optimize for M1? Steam has limited Mac support as is.

  • Nasa continued to use old tech for the same reason. They needed nonproblematic, bulletproof software during space missions.

  • Apple have done this before, when it went from Motorola to Power PC CPU, and from Power PC to Intel CPU. It is distrubing that people are so ignorant about history.

  • What a stunning observation you got there the new macs that come out have better specs than the old ones, I love how you have to put asterisk behind every benchmark bc you compare them to either a previous models or cheaper models, Apple ppl live in a bubble 😀

  • Note: BlackMagic just updated the Disk Speed Test in the Apple App Store to now run Natively on the M1 Macs, as the old Disk Speed Test app benchmarks were running under Rosetta 2. I am now getting 3.2 MB/sec where as before I was getting about 2.4 MB/sec under the non-M1 optimized Blackmagic Disk Speed Test app. You may want to re-run your benchmark test using the new Native Disk Speed Test on M1 Macs.

  • I am still not sure if apple is making the two tb3 ports share the same 40Mbs bandwidth or if they are truly fully independent with 40Mbs each. Please test that. Thanks Also can you recommend external ssds since these memory limited internally un upgradeable machines use the fast ssd as a memory swap file, this makes "the external ssd the single most important addidtion you can make to your m1 mac" performance wide, especially since GPUS are not currently supported.
