    "The first Mac with Apple silicon will ship this year, and the total transition is expected to take two years, Cook says. The company also still has Intel-based Macs in its pipeline."

    I don't think I can wait, but might as well be patient. I'm still chugging along with my mid-2011 MacBook Air!! I hope an Apple Silicon-powered MBA comes out with the first batch.

    That new Big Sur OS will look great on new hardware!

    I'm on the same boat.

    So long as the Mac's hardware is fault free and your current apps works fine then keep it.

    By the time we get a new Mac with Apple silicon they'd be done with all the Mac hardware and software transitions.

    Here's the 18 minute highlight clip of the 99 minute long WWDC 2020 keynote.



    Us Filipinos living here are swerte... we sleep by 9pm and wake up by 7am to a finished keynote. :)

    A good indicator of Intel's failings would be local distributors of Lenovo, HP, etc bringing in AMD products for their corporate customers. I tried ordering Thinkpads with AMD and was told I'd need to order 1,000 units for them to commit to it.

    Intel's at loggerheads with having too much manufacturing assets. They cannot move as agile as the rest.

    It seems like this boat has a lot of passengers.

    My late 2012 Macbook Pro is also still chugging along pretty well.I think it still has a year or two left in it which I think is perfect, based on Apple's transition timeline. Hopefully they bring back the apple logo light on the lid by then...LOL!

    Mm...again why Apple is the best and why we pay premium. They support older devices and not leave them like an orphan.

    I tried Big Sur on my 2017 MBA and after a few hours with it, I restored Catalina overnight. VERY buggy (naturally, being in beta)--missing menu bar icons, to begin with. Ugly font and icons. Maybe later, but for now, Catalina's fine.

    Don't switch so fast. For sure there will be bugs and they will fix it. Wait for some time before upgrading to be sure.

    Haha, thanks. For most users, of course, Bulanching was giving sound advice. I'm signed up as an official beta tester.
