In this episode of The Full Nerd, Gordon Ung, Brad Chacos, Alaina Yee, and Adam Patrick Murray dive into a new world where Apple ditched Intel and Nvidiaâ€™s potent GeForce RTX 2080 Super GPUs slip into svelte sub-5 lb. laptops.
Of course, the big news of the week is Apple ditching Intel and transitioning Macs to in-house Arm chips. We dive into the implications for Mac users and the PC ecosystem alike, leaning on what we know from Microsoftâ€™s struggles to make Windows Arm laptops a thing worth caring about. This is a defining moment for computers, and we each feel passionately about the shift, so thereâ€™s a lot of wide-ranging, interesting discussion. Regardless, history proves you shouldnâ€™t buy an Intel Mac now.
