wondering if the new Mini will contain a quad core ARM. I think that if there's any Mac to try the ARM OS X experiment the this it it.
The new Mac Mini is going to be essentially an iPhone without the screen - around the size of a Raspberry Pi.
**I am absolutely making this up, but I wouldn't be surprised if it came true**
We'll id argue the shoe has switched feet. MS is certainly innovating and moving more than apple these days....
people seem to be only able to compare OS X with W95. I'm now running W10 and its certainly more stable than OS X and the speed and interface is refreshing!
Windows 10 is very good. I enjoy it and used it since pre-launch and it's nowhere close to being as stable as OS X.
Not a single crash or glitch on the windows machine - i could never say that for any of the macs I've got.
That's really surprising to me; the only time I've ever seen one of my Minis have a problem is after running a poorly-written app that messes around with resources in ways that it shouldn't. I keep my machines running for weeks or even months at a time, and never see crashes, glitches, or even memory leaks. OS X has proven rock-solid in my experience...
Using a Core M and a fanless system in a desktop computer offers no advantage whatsoever. I can't imagine that Apple would bother reengineering the Mini to use the Core M. Even the Intel NUC isn't using Core M.They are far more likely to go with core m and a fanless design than arm.
It's not about Windows support, it's that there is no Mac software at all which could run on an ARM-based Mac. If Microsoft couldn't drum up enough developer interest to make an ARM-based Windows work, Apple isn't going to do any better.Does Windows support matter for this system though?
