M1 let Apple take the existing MacBook Air chassis and… rip out the fan, let the Mac mini run on max… basically forever, and make an iMac almost as thin as an iPad. But those are all ultra-low power implementations of Apple silicon. The ones that put the efficiency in performance efficiency. One year later, and we still don’t have any ultra-high power implementations. Any that put the performance first. Also, any with bigger displays, more ports, and higher memory and storage configs.
If you want a pro Mac, you still have to buy an Intel Mac… for now, or keep waiting for an M1X, probably until this fall at the earliest, next summer at the latest. So... should you keep waiting?
