The latest Mac Mini is using Apple's M1 processor, but instead of turning it on, I decided to take it apart. I hope I didn't break it.

  • First thing first, Apple's design team has done an incredible job of replicating a tiffin box! Few months back, I added 8 GB RAM, replaced the HDD with SSD in my 8 years old Dell XPS 15 and with Windows 10, it works like a breeze! This is something you cannot do when you pack Apples inside a tiffin box 😁

    • So many people said that he was wrong on his M1 chip "opinion" and they turned out to be correct. Instead of eating humble pie, he doubled down on his factually wrong stance.

  • >8 or 16 gigs, all proprietary stuff, obsolete on the shelves. back in my days we used to call this kind of thing a terminal. not a computer. hell even the HP/Wyse/Dell terminals actually have hardware inside you can upgrade, and closer to a SNES-sized PC. this mac can be adequately called a terminal.

  • I imagine there's no SODIMM option because there isn't a "normal" memory controller on the M1 SoC, so to add SODIMM support they'd have to also add a suitable memory controller, and bring all those needed signals off-chip.
