Has anyone got one of the new Macs with the M1 chip and running the Suf App?
I may be able to pick a MacBook Air or Pro (8gb ram, 256gb SSD) in a deal through work. My guess is it should run the app absolutely fine and possibly quite well. Just wanted to pick the hive brain if there’s already some real world experience of it
The Air is almost as powerful as the Pro this time around. The only real difference is passive cooling on the Air vs. having a fan in the Pro, therefore the Pro won‘t throttle power under load (as much).
USB-C will accept any kind of dongle, yes. Sadly, in the Apple-verse you have to get used to a lot of dongles…
Just a recommendation from someone who has experience with USB C on Mac’s, where there is an option to buy Thunderbolt 3 versions of the device (hub or cables as an example), pay the little extra and go that route. Both are the same plug but the Mac supports Thunderbolt 3 which requires certification to be branded as Thunderbolt. My experience is that Thunderbolt certified devices are far more stable, and they benefit from even greater capability and performance. As an example, when. I was connecting USB C external storage they would randomly disconnect (especially when tasked), but the Thunderbolt based devices would not. The Thunderbolt devices also would not heat up nearly as much and were faster.
Enjoy the new M1. I didn’t think I would be interested in it, but everything I have read and seen now has me waiting to see what the bigger Pro’s will look like.
Got the usb c dock all set up in the pain cave earlier. So once I’ve got it set up and the Suf app installed it should just be a nice easy one cable set up. Got one with power delivery as well so it can even charge it.
