|Long story short, I've a mac of 2015 (8gb ram). I've been waiting for that keyboard update. Now that there's the new keyboard they decided to change processor.|
Thus, should I wait 1 year and get a new mac with ARM or it's better to get the intel one that will last for 3/4 years more?
what would be the problem with Intel based processor? that their life span is shorter since app will be compatible for a while, not for long.
The problme that I see for ARM based mac book will be that the first sets are for betatester with money :D
a bit of ref: I develop, and the mac that I own is a bit aged and slow.
PS: should I move to windows/linux and other manufaturer at this point? (I'm a bit skeptical due to the 10+ years on mac and all the apps/keystroke that I use)
