Among the M1, M1 Pro, M1 Max and M1 Ultra chips, it can be difficult to decide which Apple Silicon Mac computer is the best for your musical needs. In this video, I provide in-depth discussion and comparisons on which Apple Silicon computer is best for which needs. Keep in mind this video is NOT meant to be about benchmarking and tests, but it’s my suggestions based on the 6 months I’ve been using my M1 Max MacBook Pro, on testing I’ve done on my MBP, and on numerous testing videos I have watched.
