And in IT environment it's all HP Elitebook, Dell Latitude/XPS, Lenovo or Surface devices. But at the end of the day it absolutely doesnt matter how a device looks, if it's powerful enough for a certain task. Depending on which features are used. Not everyone needs Intel vPro and does Virtualization for example. Doesn't matter if it's advertised as a gaming notebook, they just have an ncredible price to performance ratio.

And an audio interface won't sound different on a Win machine with proper audio drivers. I've worked in webdev companys on apple macs and they crashed quite often for no obvious reason...

Daimon, 04 Oct 2021"you will understand if you join the club" Haa... moreWho says you need to be part of their "ecosystem". It's so funny when people get angry denialists and "refuse". I have an iPhone yet I don't use a single Apple's service that would otherwise tie me to their ecosystem. Not their iCloud mail service, not their iCloud storage. I do have Apple Watch which is kinda tied to the iPhone, but on the other hand, I have AirPods 2 that I never use with my iPhone. I use them exclusively on Windows and Linux PC's. You can use a Mac and not have an iPhone. Experience is probably the best when you have it all, but I see no reason why you couldn't use a MacBook Pro and have an Android phone. Or whatever.

Haahaa. Thanks.. but Nooo waaay i jump into apple ecosystem and become an apple fan. Better save more money to buy a house, or a good new car.

But again, bottom line it was an tool issue that was based on x86 arhitecture and read all the data wrong since it was to soon
Also the temperatures from intel tool for example had issues for 2-3 months until it was updated to fully support arm arhitecture of m1
The power of knowledge..

Daimon, 04 Oct 2021U ever read about the ssd wear problem? You will broke you... moreYes, that was a mistake made by the guys who wrote that. Check again, its a thing about writing to ram and back to the ssd
After 10 months of my m1 with a lot of writing and encoding, my ssd health is around 96%, and those people said that after some terrabytes their ssd were down to 80%..kids that dont know what tools to use
That thing was months ago and everybody understood was a tool issue

For developers a gaming laptop is not a true solution
Its clear you dont have a workstation or an developer kit/device
As developers our devices are an investment that after 1-2 years we place then as secondary device for running kernels, pro raw to see that it still runs fine
Audio, video encodecs/ editing are not done under gaming laptops, maybe if you are poor and you need to keep that device for a longer period of time
You will understand when you will join the club

You will broke your ssd much faster If u use m1 macs. This issue does not happens on intel macs.

Gaming laptops are not just for gamers.
Just like me.. i dont do games.

They use the same exact design, ssd, as they did for 3 years
Jesus christ
M1x if they come with a redesign , yes that can be call a first generation product

(depending on how far one wants to go with overclocking, of course) Dual channel on the other hand is more important but can easily be fixed with adding a second ram stick.

You find out online from a kid with that ssd wear…macs last 4-5 years
The m1 laptops are 1 year old and people still praise them

Ohh boy.. a lot of people here making dumb comparations between RISC - V (ARM) architecture vs X86 architecture processor 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

Expect to see major weakness such as the famous "ssd wear problem". Many other problems will come soon.

Right now Apple is years ahead with the M1 chip, and the M1X is just around the corner.
