I know the new M1 chips or SoCs as they are called, look very impressive for the 3 entry level Macs just released. There will still be many benefits to owning an Intel or AMD based hack. It's easy to dual boot. Super easy to upgrade your hardware. With these and future M1, M2 M3... Macs you really have to do all the upgrades you'll ever need at the time of purchase (and pay the high Apple markups). Still much more expensive than building your own hack. When you buy a Mac you lose the satisfaction of building and configuring your machine yourself. Not everyone will give that up and buy all their hardware from Apple. Finally why would anyone not want to be a part of this community and work with others that have similar interests ?
