All I got was no upgradeable Ssd/ram, no eGPU's and no 10 g ethernet (what is that?) with the mini, doesnt seem that bad but I guess Linus Tech I Don't Write My Own Videos Tips thinks its super terrible.
Idk, I feel 16gb of ram would be fine especially given the CPU gains. Same thing with GPU, given the gains would a eGPU be necessary? Would any current eGPU's even be compatible with the new chip?
I will say though I did not realize the Macbook Air has the M1 as well and it's basically the same thing with a screen and keyboard, if the performance is the same as the MBP and Mini, that looks pretty good.
10G is 10 Gigabit ethernet port which was an option on the last mini. Normal folks, not a big deal. If you're building server farms or need that fast a connection for other purposes it sucks. Standard ethernet connections are 1 Gigabit.
And those dude produce a video every day. Of course he doesn't write all of them. But they are good videos.
No eGPUs is HUGE. I'm sorry but their chip is NOT going to be able to replace a 2080 or 3080 GPU. Not even close. So that does suck for folk working with video.
16Gb of ram isn't bad. But again, if your doing certain things, not so good. Most audio stuff you'll be fine. But if you use a lot of VI's you won't like that. And video again..not enough.
And is odd that they are all literally the same machine, even the macbook pro.
Either way, it'll be interesting to see how they work out in real life, but I'm not holding my breath that some how they just revolutionized CPUs/GPU processing and are going to kick the crap out of what is happening in the rest of the computer world.
