I tried to break my M1 Mac mini and it is still the best machine I’ve ever owned. Based on my testing and review of the M1 Mac mini over this last year I’ve come to find that this Apple Silicon device has lived up to and beyond every expectation and workflow that I have from audio work, video editing and yes, gaming.
If you are still considering purchasing the M1 and you’re also looking to get into MacOS at a lower budget, this may be your best option.
And as I like to say, if you're in need of an updated device, don't wait too long. These M1 Macs are fantastic for the price.
