    Why an iMac or Mac Mini when you can buy a MacBook Pro and dock it?

And now I wanted to replaced my desktop old 5k iMac with someone new, but the display size and resolution is very important to me...

    For Undergrad CS Student: MacBook Pro 13" M1 vs cheaper Windows laptop i7 processor

    For undergrad CS Student is MacBook Pro 13" M1 useful ? I think CS student may need Mac native terminal / bash shell for scripting. Now Window 10 also support bash shell and linux subsystem. Most 3rd party softwares comes with intel x86_64 / AMD distributions, for example common development...

    Is there a way to uninstall Rosetta from M1?

    I need to push out software using an MDM (Addigy) that requires Rosetta, and want to see what this will look like to the end-user, but my M1 Macs are already running Rosetta. Is there any way to uninstall Rosetta from an M1/Silicone Mac so I can run a realistic test?

    Have you played Battlefield 3 multiplayer on Apple silicon / M1?

    Hi. I'm going to replace my 2009 24 inch iMac soon and am trying to decide whether to go for the 2020 iMac 27 inch or wait for the larger M1(X) 27/30 inch iMac.

    How does M1 perform as a server?

    I was tempted to name this thread, "GoFundMe: help me replace all of my servers..." :D Hypothetically, has anyone seen impressive benchmarks on the M1 performing as a server?

    YouTube M1 Reviews and Peripherals

    Is it just me, or are most of the M1 YouTube reviews somewhat lacking? No one even mentions how USB peripherals work with these new Macs. You'd think some of them would at least say a word or two about driver compatibility and such. But nope. They just run Geekbech, export a 4K video in FCP and...
