As for Windows running natively on the machine, "that's really up to Microsoft," Hair Force One said. "We have the core technologies for them to do that, to run their ARM version of Windows, which in turn of course supports x86 user mode applications." https://t.co/uURinXmVR9— Rosyna Keller (@rosyna) November 20, 2020
I just had the M1 Mac mini crash on me 3 times requiring a hard reboot all due to Chrome and yes the M1 version of Chrome. Closed Chrome and problem solved….interesting.— Aaron Zollo (@zollotech) November 20, 2020
For devs to structure their core ops to attain the fastest performance in a laptop— Kontra (@counternotions) November 20, 2020
THEN: Fit it all into RAM
NOW: Fit it inside the pre-throttle envelope of a passively-cooled M1 MacBook Air
Yeah by the time M2 hits pretty much everything should be ARM native, too! One advantage of so many devs using Apple products.. quick conversions.— Jeff Atwood (@codinghorror) November 20, 2020
Just returned the base Mac Mini and ordered the top spec Mini!— Brandon Butch (@BrandonButch) November 20, 2020
This will replace my 5K iMac as my main work machine.
I’ll miss the 40GB of RAM on the iMac but 16GB on this more efficient M1 should perform even better 🤩
the irony is that now it will be like “for $300 less you can get a MacBook Air...”— dan seifert (@dcseifert) November 20, 2020
Performance wise the MBA M1 is 💯. Haven’t experienced any throttling, easily faster than any real Macs I’ve ever used.— Paul Haddad (@tapbot_paul) November 20, 2020
It’s not however the fastest OS X experience I’ve had, a beefed up desktop PC hardware (10+ cores) can beat it.
Great stuff, but for me not transformative?
Had to switch back to the 16-inch MacBook Pro for a bit…it feels slow and gets hot. Also, fans spin up often when editing…M1 is so much better— Aaron Zollo (@zollotech) November 20, 2020
While I still think iOS apps on Mac are a cancer on the platform, one good thing about them is that while running in Xcode many of the APIs that don’t work on the simulator, will work.— Paul Haddad (@tapbot_paul) November 20, 2020
In case you were wondering, M1-native Chrome is faster than any Intel notebook browser, but it still gets smoked by M1-native Safari, per Ars Technica. (Note: I haven't had a chance to run perf tests on M1 Chrome myself, but I generally trust Ars).https://t.co/61XQXyf3kt pic.twitter.com/VQHwNzBnXR— othermaciej (@othermaciej) November 21, 2020
