Yeah I know I also use Logic, the question was how big is the difference between the Mac Mini M1 and the MacBookAir with exact the same specs.That would depend on how many tracks, Loops and effects you are trying to use. If you only using 24 tracks probably no problem but if you start getting up into the in to 50 - 60+ tracks you might run into an issue. But at the same time maybe not. Lets think about it like this the M1 chip is smacking around 9900k in single core and is not much behind in the multi thread. My buddy averages about 30-40 tracks/loops in his music making with a I9 9900 and says that at any given time he is using about 40% of the CPU! He exclusively uses Logic to produce his tracks!

Sandy Bridge was released in 2011. How many people are still using those today?
The new Mac products are always confusing nowadays.. Wait for the "Mac Mini ProMax Supra Ultra X", it'll be the best!!wait there are a few M1 chips or just one? MacBook Air "we took out the fan" (laughs), Mac Mini "powerful" fan, MacBook pro "dedicated" fan... I'm confused!

Yah Apple Silicon is way easier to understand than that nonsense.I don't find anything confusing with the Apple Silicon Macs. It all seems extremely straight forward to me...
On the other hand, I have a really hard time with Intel's new naming scheme...
