    Performance of the M1 processor is amazing. The benchmarks don’t tell the whole story, it’s so zippy and reactive, a pleasure to use. Love mine! Bye Intel!

    ^ How can benchmarks (applicable to your use) not tell the story? I've had zippy systems with any processor once the day (year) came that I started using SSDs.

    Is this the one the new malware runs on?

    I know I can look it up, but it’s curious the new Mac Mini doesn’t mention processor speed. Didn’t speed used to be a thing?

    Malware runs on all computers it was just a matter of time before malware was written for the M1. There’s an app called Malwarebytes for a reason. And the M1 does have a processor speed, look it up. Haters.

    Looks like a pretty good deal for a relatively powerful desktop workstation, if your needs are simple.

    Articles coming out suggesting that the 8GB memory is forcing more read-writes to the SSD and wearing it out far faster than one would expect. Since all memory is soldered down, this is disturbing.

    ^ Depends on what you're doing with it? I've had the same SSD for Windows on one system with 8GB memory in it, for almost 6 years and the reported health of it is 80-something %, indicating it could go another 20+ years... and it's only a 128GB SSD that was 3/4 full, most of that time so fewer free cells to rewrite to.

    Granted, it has MLC flash chips, don't know what this mini's SSD uses, and leaving more free space makes more difference on an SSD. I mean don't let it get down to a dozen GB or less so it is constantly rewriting the same areas, though modern wear leveling may account for this too and move some data around when beneficial.
