ARM Macbooks

Anyone else excited about the idea of Apple switching to ARM? I know I am - the idea of 24 hours of battery life really appeals. Hopefully we will get to find out what they’re releasing on Tuesday when they have the Apple event…

I must admit I’m quite looking forward to these coming out - I’ve been considering buying a MacBook for ages now after having one a few years ago and the benefits of the ARM CPUs seem pretty good. I will probably keep my old ThinkPad around for work purposes as well as experimenting with other OSes but the idea of a machine thats fast, good battery life and plays nicely with my existing Apple stuff really appeals.

I’ve so far not been impressed with the Macbook hardware from 2015 onwards but since the switch away from the notorious butterfly keyboard mechamism last year hopefully Apple are now heading in the right direction again.

No news on these just yet from Apple, they did say by the end of 2020 but I guess with everything going on the ARM macbooks might be delayed…
