What i found most fascinating about the Spring Loaded event is that Apple are now basically selling the exact same hardware, the M1, in 4 different form factors. Is this the future of personal computing?

The upcoming MacBook Pro is supposed to be running on a more powerful version of it, dubbed the M1X. I think they'll be spread out more over time, it's just this way now because this is the very start of Apple using their own processors.

Apparently, Appleā€™s M2 chip has entered production and will ship as soon as July.

My guess is the X-variant of Apple's M-series chips is the plan for the company's desktop computers; it may have gotten disrupted by *broadly gestures at 2020/2021*. Also, isn't there currently a chip shortage? Is it possible that could affect things?

Ted Lasso is on the list. It's the only thing on AppleTV+ I've heard of. RABicle's assessment is interesting. I'll keep that in mind.

insanolord, what MacBook Pro are you eyeballing? If Apple finally releases the 14" model, that will probably be what I get. The MacBook Air is also an option though I remember feeling that the extra cost was worth upgrading to the Pro. We'll see if that holds up later this year.

I'm looking at the 16" model. My current one is 15", and I wouldn't mind going slightly bigger.

I've wanted a Macbook for years but I will not buy a laptop without a touchscreen. It's far too useful.
