I TOTALLY see this being the new norm in 5 years. All upgrade slots gone.I do hope AMD and Intel are shitting it right now. It is great if it pushes AMD and Intel to reach new heights. People shifting to mac from windows for 1 chip is never going to happen unless AMD and Intel cant match this performance even after years.
Hope they don't copy what apple is doing in terms of fleecing customers. Now that Apple has integrated RAM into their SOC they have jacked prices like crazy.
200$ for extra 8Gb ram LOL. No extra ports needed we will take those back. Just glad Apple doesn't have a monopoly on tech market otherwise half my salary will go in basic tech comforts.
Apple's new M1 silicon really looks amazing, but it isn't faster than 98 percent of the PCs sold last year, despite what the company claims.www.extremetech.com
Also the new speeds that we see are also due to the fact that it's a SOC, and Apple is not dealing with different IO lag as compared to a typical PC (with upgradable RAM/SSD).
