I thought this was going to be a poll about James Bond's "M".

its really just about your budget... including monitor(s) if you are coming from something older or an iMac.

Decide ho much you want to spend and choose accordingly.

Whats a bonus for some peeps is that MBPs are *truly* as fast as desktops... sure many intel MBPs had i7/i9 and GPUs... but baby chips and hampered GPUs.

Ive never needed/wanted a laptop, but its encouraging to see how fast they are now. true desktop replacements.

And I thought "Robert M" and his family.

I looked at the Mini M2 Pro vs the entry level Studio, both with 32 GB and 1 TB storage. the Studio is $300 more but gives you 10G ethernet and several more ports. If you bump the mini to the 10GB ethernet, it's a $200 difference. I'm leading towards the Studio and hoping that I won't need to add a hub.

From your last post:

Whats the end goal? how many screens and how many Thunderbolt devices do you need to run?

And everything has to be run Thunderbolt? Not simple USB C?

maybe you need a more capable mac. Even a $1100 mini pro would give you 2 screens + 3 extra TBolts.

10G is nice... if you have a 10G network to run it on, or other 10G devices to hook it too, otherwise. meh.

Always remember the Mac you buy today will be worthless in a few years so never buy more than you need.

That's a good way of looking at it.

That read like Speedy Sarcasm™.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
