Appleâ€™s news on Monday that it will be dropping Intelâ€™s x86 CPUs for its own ARM chips can mean only one thing to anyone who doesnâ€™t want to be left behind: Donâ€™t buy a Mac.
You may think this is another Internet-baiting hot take that will argue that x86 is better than ARM. Or you might think the math doesnâ€™t add up that Appleâ€”despite its near-infinite loop of resources and cashâ€”can outwit AMD, Intel and Nvidia.
But thereâ€™s a practical, real reason why you shouldnâ€™t drop $1,500 or $4,500 on a new Mac: Youâ€™ll be abandoned.
During the announcement, Tim Cook said Apple will continue to support Intel-based Macs for â€œyears.â€� But as we know, that could mean two years or two hundred years.
