The Apple corner is where I’ve spent today. Two Mac Minis and a first-gen Intel Mac Pro on a KVM with a DEC AlphaServer against the wall...
I will say that the M1 Mac Mini is astonishingly powerful. It makes the other two (an i5 and a dual-Xeon Mac Pro) look like cheap garbage.
I really want to hate Apple, but the M1 is damn good.
