I've ordered an M1 basic Mac Mini as there are some on the Apple refurb store.
From everything I have seen and read the performance on these M1 machines is pretty breathtaking most of the time. I saw something on YouTube a while back with a guy who was selling his $15,000 2019 Mac Pro, because 90% of the time he found the mini was faster. He still rated the Mac Pro but wanted to sell it while it still has some kind of resale value.
It's insane that the M1 is delivering that kind of speed and this is only the beginning, but even more so that it does all of this with so little fuss. No more crazy high temperatures, screaming fans, heavy electrical consumption or spinning ball.
