…ve no doubt it will be insanely fast, especially when compared to the previous Intel Core i3 model. But while we were hoping for an improved SoC with more memory and higher speeds, Apple is just adding the same M1 chip that is in the Macbooks, right down to the 7- and 8-core GPU options. That’s probably enough for these iMacs, but Apple will need more computing and graphics power, not …
I agree, I was also expecting an improved CPU that is more suitable specifically for a Desktop computer.
Right now it feels like there are no additional benefits of owning an iMac comparing to the MacBook Air M1 that I already have.
Don't get me wrong. M1 Chip is great, but I was also looking for some additional and specific advantage that could make iMac on M1 a distinctive choice over anything else, at least for the Desktop.
Maybe more memory options? Maybe more expansion options? Maybe some customizations possible, since it's not limited to a small amount of laptop space.
Nope, doesn't seem like that. Then why do I need instead of MacBook Air which I can take anywhere with me and it runs perfectly well from a built-in battery?
