I could not find any report upon that subject.
Has someone a source?

My previous employer tracked statistics on a large number of Mac clients. When I left in April, Apple Silicon comprised a third of the devices.

Thank you. From the own company, or from his customers?

I have no hard numbers.
But I'll reckon that around 35-40% of all Macs in use (both personal and corporate) are now m-series.

Keep in mind I just pulled that number out of a hat, it's just "a guess".

If they were actually making M Mini's & Studios with user upgrade-able SSD's & RAM (as they should be on desktops), I'd have one already

But I'm not buying a desktop with locked down components, the purpose of which is simply to drive upgrade sales of their HORRENDOUSLY overpriced SSD/RAM upgrades

Turbine complained:

Then I guess you won't be buying a Mac again, eh...?

Unless, of course, you buy a Mac Pro for around $8,000 or so... and even then, your choice of "upgrade-ability" will still be extremely limited.

There will be "no going back" for Apple.
If anything, the hardware configuration choices will become MORE constrained as Apple moves the existing "Mac OS", into "Mac iOS" territory...
