  • MaxTech on YouTube has put up a couple videos concerning the M1 Macs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvrYVIQSsJs and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ndmrB5mpiU
  • Thanks! This one has been added.
  • It would be better if these YouTubers were actually relating experiences using REAL hardware, instead of just giving their opinions. Therefore, I do not place any validity in what they are saying yet, and will wait to watch their reviews at a later date. Right now these are just videos to draw clicks and views.
  • I'm waiting to see the real life tests. Also I do need Windows support for two apps that I run that do not have a Mac alternative. I don't think Windows VM in Parallels through Rosetta is going to cut it but let's wait and see.
