With my old eyes, laptops tiny screens won’t cut it. Lately, I was working on a 27" iMac.
After much consideration, I finally bought the Apple Mini M1, with an ASUS 28" screen. In terms of comfort, it is the same as the 27" iMac.
In terms of speed, the new machine is simply twice as fast.
In terms of compatibility, there are a few pitfalls. First, I had everything on an external SSD, and had hoped to be able to boot on it. Fat chance. Apparently, the system meant for intel won’t launch on an M1 machine.
I simply had to reinstall all apps.
There are apps that won’t work with M1, even with Rosetta 2. But overall, most apps run flawlessly.
I will be able to test my universal build apps. Hopefully it will work fine.
