  • Awesome video.!! 🤟🏻 I was waiting for 16inch MCB update but it seems like it's not releasing anytime soon. So if I buy Mac mini M1, will there be any difference between editing experience and timeline playback with Luts, effects applied on 8gb RAM vs 16gb RAM model. Please suggest. I edit footage from Canon 80D and Gorpo Hero 9 5k footage..

    • @Dave Lee Well I have a reason: in multi core benchmark the ARM processor was lagging behind i9 but you said nothing but just keeping saying nice things and you failed to address that it is lagging behind i9,. I think the video should be more objective than emotional sometimes....

  • I would have like to see the M1 in a touch screen surface pro like device. I am not a fan of iPadOS. I would like to see iPad with M1 running full MacOS. 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.

  • Apple just created an Ipad with keyboard and a better chip. It's like running i7 with android OS. They will have Macbook = Ipad = Iphone = iMac, same os, but different shitty hardware.

  • The CPU performance is very impressive, but still shipping with 8 GB of RAM and 256GB by default... Cmonnnn, it's 2020. 8 GB of RAM cannot be a thing anymore.

    • @Dave Lee But this is not a phone. For many demanding applications, RAM is RAM. For Chrome tabs too, it makes little difference.

      QuantumBracedQuantumBraced3 päivää sitten
    • It can be when you use RAM differently than x86 systems. For the same reason why Apple can get away with 4-6GB ram on their phones. When Android flagships need 8-12gb

  • Can you plug the mac mini m1 usb-4 port into a display with a usb-c dp1.4 alt mode input support and pd [ power delivery ] 90w output and have that power the device, i.e. like a thunderbolt/usb-c enabled laptop, versus having to also plug the mac mini m1 into a power source?

  • I'm an Apple user, rather than a fanboi. The limited number of ports is consistent with what you'd expect in low end Macs - which is what these are. My 2017 13" Macbook Pro only has two ports.

  • Apple is taking the correct approach to ARM based laptop and desktop chips - in this application performance comes first. While Qualcomm is floundering around pushing 5G connectivity as their top billed feature and are charging a premium ($1600 for a mediocre ARM laptop with 5G) for it. While I wouldn't pay a premium for 5G in a laptop, I would give it a serious consideration for crazy performance and low wattage.

    Murali DharanMurali Dharan8 päivää sitten
  • 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.

And now I can't believe that I would start to think of buying this M1 macbook after just despising Apple as a company not less than an hour ago.

  • Non exapndable RAM, no M2 slot, no eGPU over Thunderbolt, only Gigabit Ethernet, (currently) no Docker/Kubernetes, no way to run any other OS, etc. Macs are becoming overpriced Chromebooks for masses instead of niche tools for developers and media professionals. Try to develop a microservice based application on M1 based Mac. I personally run 3-4 different IDEs, running several Docker containers, several Java instances, several databases. My memory usage ranges typically between 32 - 64 GB. Somebody try editing 30Mpix RAW 32 bit pictures in Photoshop on it or paint 200 layer hi-res art. How long would it take to download/upload that 4k video over gigabit network in a studio?

  • I’d very much appreciate a video on products that were met with extreme criticism when Apple announced them at their respective Keynote and how that played out in retrospect. Like the AirPods which were labeled as overpriced, stupid and nothing more than a cash-grab as Apple removed the headphone jack on the iPhone 7. Another one is the Apple Pencil which also didn’t seem like anything to write home about. Another interesting video would be a ranking of Apple’s best products (hardware and software included even an OS update) from the past decade and how tech has changed after each product’s release. This is highly subjective based on the conditions as sometimes one aspect/feature of the product is more groundbreaking than the overall product itself e.g. M1, Handoff/Continuity or the App Store.

  • Great that Apple is breaking up with Intel The limit of external displays on the M1 MacBook Air and Pro ~ meh. I'm sure there's a work around I think these M1 1st gens is a glimpse of what's to come. Looking forward to the M1 MacBook Pro 16. I find that the ARM chips are really slow when they're not given enough onboard RAM to work with. Speaking from experience with Hardkernel Odroid C2 and Raspberry Pi which lack in performance due the Mali GPU and driver support from other Linux distro. They're fast when they're given RAMDisk. I still use it for KODI and web design. I believe that the future releases of the Apple Silicon chips will come in higher numbers CPU cores and GPU cores with more UMA memory. I also see render farms upgrading to M1 Macs because of the performance improvements once all software is optimized A side note Microsoft Windows has a ARM version of the OS. Looking forward to them updating that, not that I'm needing Windows ARM version. I wonder what's the future of eGPUs though. Seems like it'll only benefit PC users here on

I don’t have to deal with yelling, over dramatic bs, you present the information in a very calm and approachable way. Second, the information is concise, to the point, and you generally address many of the questions that I have coming into a video or those that pop up along the way. Finally I appreciate your opinion and insight as a consumer. Great video and look forward to many more. Thanks, Doug

  • For the XCode compilation. I wonder if you're actually compiling for the same architecture, what kind of ouput do you get. I have a lot of questions here : - What is the project ? - What is the target architecture(s) (Are we doing cross compilation) ? - What is the output binary performance ? - What version of the compiler are you using on each hardware ? I'm sure they did a pretty good job with this, but I wonder were are the pitfalls. Have a 4 lower power cores can give you a better w/h so better battery. But a larger cache and a large memory bus can only go so far. I wonder were are the pitfalls.
