    History is cool but I hate manipulative titles. The magic of M1 performance... I mean right away I am supposed to be blown away by M1.

      In reply to illuminated: It's an article published in 9to5Mac. I'm not surprised by the overly positive headline. ;-) Don't get me wrong, the M1 is a solid achievement, but ithere no "magic" ......

      Yes, i think you should be blown away. The bottom tier MacBook Air M1 can compete with the middle and top tier intel i5 and i7 MacBooks. The Mac mini M1 ($700) can compete and sometimes beat apple products costing 3 or 4 times more. This is like the late 1970s, Honda vs GM.

      compared with Qualcomm’s failures at a desktop os chip, this is even more amazing. Apple users will have no regrets leaving intel behind, as the performance improvement rate for apple’s chips lately has been substantially greater than for intel’s chips.
