So why did you buy a MacOS in the first place if a Mac is almost useless to you? #FacePam
The more CORE I can get, the better. I run VM's and currently I assign 2 Cores per VM and would like to assign more for better performance with Windows 10. Having 12 Core and 32gb or 64gb will actually provide me with the system I need, along with multiple USB ports. I would also like to assign 12gb memory for each VM, hence the need for 32gb or 64gb memory.
I think Apple will have a hard time selling any Pro model priced at what they have typically wanted for a Pro Mac. I mean the performance so far of the M1 makes spending a lot more a lot less attractive even if the M1X has even more performance. Mainly because adding more cores doesn't always mean a huge performance gain. This already has been a issue for Apple trying to sell a 13 inch Macbook Pro when the Macbook Air is almost as good for less. Could Apple have overplayed its hand with the M1? I have to wonder if the Pro lineup will shrink significantly with Mac's?
