I’m in the market for a new Macbook Pro right now.
I really want to go and buy a new M1 chipped, but can’t seem to find the right answer for me anywhere else.
I keep hearing a lot of stuff isn’t ready, especially for developers, but most of what I see are features I don’t use such as:
- Xcode simulators, for different models of the iPhone and iPad
I could definitely go without docker for a while, knowing that work is being done so it will run some time in the future and I don’t use Xcode for anything except I install it so I can have git and all the dev fundamentals.
I mostly develop for the browser, and nodejs servers, so my stack would be something like:
- all browsers
- mongodb, mysql, postgres sql
- some db visualizers, mostly built on electron (think Mongodb’s Compass)
- vscode, sublime
- a lot of terminal – iTerm – vim, tmux
Am i able to work with the new M1?
