,that should depress the sales of Intel Macs this year. I was thinking about replacing my Mac Mini, or maybe getting a newer MacBook, but I think I'll wait.

Unless of course there is fire sale on Intel Macs!!!!!smiley-laughing001

It was said at WWDC that there would be Intel Mac in the pipeline for some time yet, and I imagine buyers will get 5-7yrs of Apple support (not AppleCare+ or whatever).

Certainly if one can afford to wait they should, to see what shakes out.

Anyone who needs one now or in the next few months shouldn't hesitate.

Since it is supposedly to benefit mobile users the most, my guess is it will be a lighter 13.3 inch ArmBook Air. The iBook name was already used, otherwise it would be perfect.

They could bring back the iBook name, it's not a bad one. However they've been moving away from iStuffs so probably won't happen.

I may be purchasing another Intel Mac or two yet this year, if there are some more refreshes.

But those would be an iMac or greater.

All mobile purchases will wait for Apple Silicon.

If they make a touchscreen MBA, we will be first in line. Would replace my wife's iPad likely.

Don’t the mobile Macs (iPhone, iPad) already have ARMs in them?

Sure, but they do not run Mac OS...
