shappy, 01 Sep 2020Apple is so lazy.... atleast they should go with different chipset than ipad Why? The goal is efficiency and the display resolution is likely right in between the Pro iPad models; it should handle media and mobile-quality gaming just as well as those tablets, and still last a long time for light to moderate workloads.
After 30 years using Apple as a design professional, I'm done - moving to windows for more power for WAY less money.
Android.Master, 01 Sep 2020At the end of the day, Windows is the OS of choice on PC platform.
Rest can't compete. Are you a former employee of apple that wants to hate at them all day?
It's quite obvious.
Anonymous, 01 Sep 2020And you think Arm cpu won't throttle? What dream world are you living in? Your comment "It will throttle as usual" implies that it will throttle like Intel MacBook Air. Obviously it will not be able to sustain its turbo frequency for a very long period of time like gaming PCs do, but it will not throttle in the way that you meant.

Plenty of people used to install Windows just so they could play some games.
Now not possible at all.
Anonymous, 01 Sep 2020You're right. I've used both. Windows is miles better. MacBook has many limitations.... moreNah mate not everyone games. I have a gaming PC for gaming, but as a laptop MacBooks are way better. I've used windows laptops for over 12 years now and if you can afford a macbook trust me it's way better.
You have point but also you missing the point too. In term of performance its correct. but there is more to that, After sales service, Product brand value and quality of product.
If my MacBook Pro have issue its way more easy to get fixed, not just the country I bought it, but any where in the world.
Its the only brand, whose laptop I can really sell easily and get good price,
Quality is one area Apple is products are great(yes it had keyboard issues for a while) Build on this thing is one thing you all ignores when comparing laptops to MacBooks, trackpad is one area Apple is benchmark, if you know at the moment its also a benchmark in term of speakers. I used to use windows but this OS is way stable for me, I can't recall when was last time I had to worry about virus, or stability. Apple products are mostly expensive for sure but what really matches in overall package.

Do not expect any software miracles, just not garbage Macbook 12 and better battery life - ofcourse there will be ton of bugs, but 3.rd party software will figure it out quickly and Apple software will get there eventualy as well.

MacBook has many limitations. In Windows you are free. You can do everything you want. The best games are only available on Windows.

Cannot wait to own an ARM based MacBook :) the integration between Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad Pro, AirPods and MacBook is going to be even more fluid and consistent,love it love it love it! Battery life should be fantastic to and more apps will run ever more consistently with with features like Handoff. :D

In fact, I used to run Windows on my Mac but since I rarely used it I deleted it to use the memory for something more useful. Today, I hardly use my Mac as well. I prefer the iPad. But I would consider an arm based Mac if it can run iPad apps.

Gaming laptops are both more expensive and have inferior cooling system, which is important for the longevity of the component. Not to mention gaming laptop are heavy as f*ck. Thankfully it's not an expensive mistake.
Anonymous, 01 Sep 2020It will throttle as usual. Most likely not. That's one of the biggest if not THE biggest reason why they are moving away from Intel.

Not on a MacBook.
Now that Apple has switched to ARM, we can't install windows on it.
Good luck Apple with this move!
