Good read on why the Arm-based M1 is such a big deal and disruptive to Intel's and AMD's traditional business models for CPUs.— Dylan Martin (@DylanLJMartin) April 23, 2021
"The M1 is such a good CPU (according to Apple), that non-professional Apple customers no longer need to care about their CPU at all." #intel #amd https://t.co/0RuochX060
This is certainly true, but what happens when M1's successor comes out? Apple will start offering tiers again, unless it goes nuclear and stops selling all M1-based computers. https://t.co/a5wbIaOEDV— Emil Protalinski (@EPro) April 23, 2021
Fascinating analysis and absolutely spot on. In one breath, Apple is saying that the CPU is almost a commodity, not a feature that stands out -- and proving how stand-out its M1 CPU really is https://t.co/eRDiv4BcII via @ExtremeTech— Jeremy Kaplan (@SmashDawg) April 23, 2021
everyone knows, whether they want to admit it or not, computers became "good enough" in the mid-00s https://t.co/2f9lrxMXp2— Stefan Constantine (@WhatTheBit) April 23, 2021
If you haven’t yet internalized how dramatically Apple’s M1 will change the computer industry, read this. Great article.— Jeff Seibert (@jeffseibert) April 23, 2021
Apple's M1 Positioning Mocks the Entire x86 Business Model https://t.co/FFNRn9agXK
"According to Apple, the M1 is the right CPU for a $699 computer, and a $999 computer, and a $1,699 computer…No single x86 CPU is sold this way or positioned as a solution to such a broad range of use cases."— Kontra (@counternotions) April 22, 2021

This is an interesting read. https://t.co/HiVNMrWNN8— Bobby Bobak @ Filtru ☕️ (@bobek_balinek) April 23, 2021
Apple’s gamble, with the M1, is that its custom CPU performance is now so high, at such low power consumption, that the choice of chip inside the system has become irrelevant within a given product generation.https://t.co/TVYR3lPgZb #ARM #x86— Suhaib Khan (@suhaibkhan) April 23, 2021
If iPad could run macOS in a VM, and otherwise supported all my Mac apps and accessories when docked at my desk, I would struggle to justify purchasing future Macs. Does that matter, though, if a decked-out iPad costs $2500+? Apple’s getting the money either way https://t.co/ROr7Qxamuw— Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith) April 22, 2021
macOS will never come to the iPad. Period. There are plenty of arguments for why they’re two distinct and separately useful platforms but there’s one reason: if an iPad is a MacBook and a MacBook is an iPad, you don’t need *both*— Luke Miani (@LukeMiani) April 22, 2021
I do *think* there is something more to the iPAD pro coming at WWDC. NOT sure what, but It's SOMETHING MORE. I'm not buying an iPad Pro based on what COULD BE. They need to SHOW ME, what more it WILL do, not CAN do. pic.twitter.com/BS8yvForo3— // Kevin Nether (@TechNinjaSpeaks) April 22, 2021
Put macOS on the iPad, you cowards https://t.co/YC0LKqBs9R via @Verge— Christina Warren (@film_girl) April 22, 2021
I use an iPad Pro in Magic Trackpad near-daily. Doesn’t make me want a touchscreen Mac.— John Gruber (@gruber) April 22, 2021

Apple is essentially saying:— Zac Cichy (@zcichy) April 23, 2021
Let’s get performance out of the way.
Price will be determined by hardware bundle / form factor, not chip performance.
(And this upends everything about Intel’s business) https://t.co/MPRwv7K13s
Yep, they keep launching powerful new iPad Pros before WWDC and 4-6 months before new software can take advantage of them.— Michael Kukielka ? (@DetroitBORG) April 22, 2021
Why do you want macOS on iPad? Hold that thought!— Rene Ritchie (@reneritchie) April 22, 2021
What percentage of the market do you really represent? Hold that thought!
What would it take for macOS to work amazing on iPad? Hold that thought!
What could Apple do that’d be *better* for *more people* on iPad?
You’d think this wouldn’t need explaining— McGuire Wood @ Secret Sky (@Jioriku) April 22, 2021
The iPad is the literal *only* reason we don’t have a touchscreen MacBook
