there will definitively be a transition period. but this shud be shorter than when they went PowerPC to Intel.
Frankly speaking, Mac doesnít have many very good apps. All they need to do is to make sure those apps continue to run well.

But the transition allows a massive number of iPad apps to be used on mac. Thatís huge

battery life for sure~

but hor the compatibility of the apps not sure how it will impact battery especially when they are running maybe an emulation of the environment~?

then bootcamp (not that i need anyways) will probably be gone.

yes. everything on papers is perfect.. but you see Microsoft couldnt do it with their Surface X series (or whatever i cant catch up with their naming) i am not sure Apple can make the transition. (given they did succeed 2x already but it was not that smooth)
Yes, many apps will not be able to run for example, native WhatsApp and Dropbox.

Doesn't Rosetta 2 automatically translates existing apps?

By right, it should but it is still not working fully yet. Probably in later version.

Actually I am satisfied too. But the key word is ďsatisfiedĒ. Unlikely iOS, developers do not have the base to develop exciting new apps unlike what you see on the iPads and iPhones. Every once in a while, I get pleasantly surprised when new innovative apps are launched

Quite excited. Think I'm most likely going to buy anything they launch in this event.

My 2014 macbook air a little too laggy liao.

Think the upcoming apple silicon macs will be somewhat a beefed up iPad pro with a keyboard... running MacOS.

Who knows, maybe they'll do something like the microsoft surface series? Can't wait!
