    1. The Agamer

      I wouldn't be shocked if in a while apple started making its own ssds and ram

    2. James Carrillo

      How High are you?

    3. NotyouAgain! !

      Apple should embrace gaming build their computers for modern gaming and with apple silicon that’s exactly something their doing just wait pc is a scam a ps5 is equivalent to a thousand dollar pc period if u have a 500$ pc and say is destroys a ps5 you’re literally dumb first off your wrong secondly enjoy the 4K 500$ piece of unreliable virus prone shit u worship lol

    4. Paul Floyd

      Considering buying one of these. I really wanted to build a PC but I also want to start editing video again and I am getting tired of waiting for graphics cards to be back in stock. I have the case I used for my original pc build before I returned all the components out of frustration because the motherboard I got came Doa on my first ever pc build. The M1 does pretty much everything I want but I would really wish it had expandability.

    5. Brian Nielsen

      Who cares, you're just a little kid with a lot of subs.... But you're still a N00b!

    6. rj hinde

      Wow, we are so screwed. If Microsoft does a similar thing to what Apple have done with the M1, Intel will become irrelevant. Not that I'm crying over that, but they did at least introduce an alternative to the walled gardens that Microsoft and Apple are going to create.

    7. I will bnned after I speak Why

      Worries about the wording Apple uses in its advertising then proceeds to say “balls slow”

    10. Lasky Labs

      Apple has been focusing on H.246 since the iPod, they knew it was worth investing in for sure.

    11. Brad Williams

      I was worried about diving in on a first-generation model like this, but I really needed something to use as a dedicated DAW, and the price point was too enticing to pass up (I got the 16GB/512GB model for $1200). I am so freaking glad I did. The lack of expandability is a minor bummer, but the Satechi hub will take care of that for me when (if?) it comes back in-stock. I think I might pull the trigger on a base model for my daughter so she has easy access to iMovie, since I got her a GoPro Hero9 for Christmas and she's interested in video. I'm definitely planning to get a 16" MBP when they release one of those. I'm happy with my 2018 15", but the mini has spoiled me.

    12. PeBoVision

      if a product destroys your expectations, it suggests that you no longer have any expectations in regards to the product (they were, after all, destroyed). Apple SURPASSED your expectations, it did not destroy them. Canada is bilingual. Pick a language.

    13. Friendship Music

      Could y’all get into m1 and Samsung ultra wide? More specifically, 2 m1 compies into 1 uw display with outboard switches or native onboard software solutions? Nobody is talking about this, and some of us are crazy people. Xoxoxo

      1. Friendship Music

        Not just Samsung, sorry, didn’t proofread.

    14. EasternRaven

      iPadOS has M&K support, don't know why they wouldn't just send that to the iPad emulator as a passthru.


      Hello bro I am a 3d artist and dealing with heavy 3d scenes so should I go for a mac mini base model

    16. Louis Wilson

      I am imagining someone taking the motherboard and power supply out of a mac mini case and gut an old iMac, and replace it with the mac mini guts.

      Another downside is that usb4 ports will die if updated for some lol Mines at Apple store now hopefully getting replacement tomorrow. Only had it setup for 1 hour...

    22. Ken m

      It's like PowerPC, remember those days? G3? G4? Now it's gonna be M1, M2. Pretty Soon We will have the Apple M5 "The World's first 128 bit personal computer".

    23. Frodo Baggins

      My wet dream would be the M1 CPU performance per watt coupled with a pair of solid RTX 3090s.

    24. Alejandro

      They should went with amd cpus some custom 3200g or higher this mac mini gpu sucks cant even power decent 240hz displays with those stupid usb ports...hdmi or dp must be entry level on all devices,,

      What can the user upgrade in it? What can the user repair?

      1. npgoalkeeper _

        The user gets to upgrade nothing. If something breaks, you have to replace the entire board. If you’re worried about that, wait until the next gen, which may have a separate uma tier and replaceable dram tier

      Who else watched this at 2x video speed

    34. FlixByYogi

      Real shit tho. My 2014 MacBook Pro (i7 16gb Ram 2gb nvidia and 1.5 gun iris) is chugging on my 4K timelines. Obviously this would be a huge upgrade, but is it worth it now or should I wait for the next gen?

      1. FlixByYogi

        Also not worried about ports or storage I keep my video and photo files on an external SSD anyway. The only time the files are taking up space on the main storage are for the project I’m working on and then I transfer after editing. If anyone had any advice for an upgrade in the Apple ecosystem it’d be very helpful!

      2. FlixByYogi

        I mainly use Final Cut and am just getting into DaVinci. I can’t seem to find any older Apple computers that would fit into my budget besides this new mini that would outperform my older Pro.

    39. Keeping it simple

      You know it's good when you have gone 9 mins into the video and Linus isnt bashing Apple.

    40. Billy HW

      They are still fully dependent on 3rd party manufacturing though.

    41. SuperSaiyan bread

      U just don't like apple

    42. Minh Tường Nguyễn

      it load so long why

    43. Ethan Bain

      Too small it would have heating issues!

    44. Antonio Ong

      You’re good, i kind of like the way that you’re fishing out the downsides of technology. Granted the title of the other video might be a little rough, but thats why i like it - say it as it is. And yes, i am a Mac user, and as of this writing there are 4 macbooks at home.

    45. Bipity Bopity

      Do people actually buy Apple for gaming though? 😂

    46. Kipper Klank

      Its amazing the masochism and bullshit apple users go through just to do simple shit like every other computer just because they are either too stubborn to use something else or are so far into they ecosystem that they have no hope of digging themselves out. If you keep your customers stupid about the products they use, the more you can take advantage of them. Apple has over 2 trillion dollars net worth for a reason.

    47. NativeBrownboy

    50. Lockhome

      This stuff goes way over my head. I just wana know if you like the mini. Too smart for me. Great content tho, I think. Should I buy a 2020 mac mini for music production? Thanks

    51. RGW88

      Can it run KODI ? That's what we need to know.🤪🤔🤪

    52. Purple Orange Peel

      You look good with a beard. Keep it up!

    53. Cameron Greenwood

      If you are like me and use 2 thunderbolt displays don't buy this piece of shit. The new M1 Mac Mini does not support two thunderbolt displays even though it has two thunderbolt ports on the back. I received mine today and have already dropped it off to be returned. It is insane to me that apple exclusively sells Thunderbolt 3 only displays on their site yet their latest rollout doesn't support two monitors is downright absurd.

    54. Hiram Gonzalez

      I’m a noob at tech. This my first video from Linus. Who is this guy with these many subscribers?

    55. Sumukha Rao

      ASs m1😂😂

    56. Spencer Gibson

      You still did not complain the programs Apple did and see if the speed increase was as Apple stated. Apple always goes to its users real needs. I don’t care about processor specs, it’s all about how much faster can the programs “I” use run.

    57. Carl Smith

      I get that Linus hates Apple, but they have their consolations. M1 is an incredible chip, and it's going to define the future of CPUs.

    58. Rhys Elliott

      8:36 I opened every app and it just worked. I was like oh no bye Mac but apparently it can handle that


      Belkin Hubs can daisey chain up to 6 thunderbolt devices


      apple always limits display to 2 .

    61. Simón Salazar

      Its an interesting step on the way to transition to ARM, something Microsoft couldnt pull by themselves but with Apple pushing the change, developers will start paying any attention to developing ARM apps, specially reffering to Windows.

    62. Brody


    63. Finn Richards

      I was weirded out by the screen burn in at 4:17 has to do a double take haha

      1. Frank Silvers

        LCDs of today only get retention, not burn in, and most LCDs of today get neither. My late 2012 iMac gets noticeable retention on the brightest setting for a screen or elements on the screen that is/are still for a while, but it disappears in minutes. In actual use you simply don’t notice it though unless you are looking for it.

    64. Mikayel N

      Can u play minecraft on it tho?

    66. Rogue Stars

    67. William Olsen

      I use a lot of music making software on a mac, and nothing is going to work with the M1, and Big Sur for quite a while. I am almost done with apple, and I am thinking about going over to Linux exclusively. I have noticed that music software is really coming along in Linux, and I love Bigwig Pro. I don't understand the cultish behavior of some Mac Users it is just a tool for me, and I would use any platform that worked the best for me, and Mac has always been the easiest for me, but I don't know if it is worth it anymore.

    68. i game i do research too

      what holds me from buying it at all is barely any integrated peripherals (is that what its called?) like there is no internal mic and the speakers are so bad that they are comparable to my 2007 macbook easily and there are barely any other stuff a daily user would need

    69. tyler mowrey

      @18:05 what brand computer chair is that??

    70. Alienbreeder's Amiga Retro Computing

      I almost feel bad for the mini. It is meant to be an entry level system, but people are testing it against high-end workstations. It does well anyway, but this is a bit unfair

    71. Aaron Carr

      Screws LOL - and true, this is disruptive technology

    72. Jan Dekker

      What was that? OFFICE WON'T RUN?

    73. stormtrooper69

      can you run arm linux on it? Android? If so how is performance?

      1. adalaza

        Linux isn't brilliant yet, a number of drivers need to be developed. GPU is the Achilles heel, you're limited to software rendering right now... Android is significantly down the road unless Cupertino is interested in helping out FOSS. If you're OK with using MacOS for the length of the device's support or a year or two, it's likely the platform will be a lot more mature.

    74. Yegor Berdyugin

      @13:18, I appreciate that you tried running Tenserflow! Helped me decide if I should wait a bit before buying a Mac Book (Air or Pro).

    75. Kenneth Anderson

      Based on all the benchmarks.... Buy a Ryzen 5 PC 😜

    76. John D

      "Some of you felt..." that was your first mistake.

    77. pmackni

      To be fair to Linus amid the apparent onslaught of Apple fans, Apple has done a pretty good job of making it such that you're either a fan or you're a hater. Because if you're not with them, you're against them, and people love jumping on board that ship. I personally am not a fan of Apple, and it really has nothing to do with their products (I mean, controlling hardware and software allows for far better optimization than Microsoft can achieve with Windows) and EVERYTHING to do with how they manage their company and have historically interacted and attempted to monopolize dealings with software partners (even if the latter has improved some over the last decade). I also have a distaste for the pared-down style interface, but that has more to do with my personal taste than anything, even when it comes to who/what students/professionals I think should buy into iOS vs Windows.

      مَّا یَفۡعَلُ ٱللَّهُ بِعَذَابِكُمۡ إِن شَكَرۡتُمۡ وَءَامَنتُمۡۚ وَكَانَ ٱللَّهُ شَاكِرًا عَلِیمࣰا What would Allah do with your punishment if you are grateful and believe? And ever is Allah Appreciative and Knowing. The Quran -Sourate An-Nisa', Aya 147 PS: Allah is the name of God in arabic . The arabic jewish and the christians arabs they say Allah too as Muslims do . In the arabic bible it is written Allah. Only 18% of Muslims are Arabs but there are 82 % they are Muslims but not Arabs so the majority of Muslims are not Arabs . And the arabic world islam, it means submission which is the religion of all prophets since Adam including the messengers Moses, Jesus and Muhamad peace and blessing of Allah be upon Them all . Thanks I wich you all the best from heart .

    79. EmoGamingXD

      It only comes with 8gb and 200 more for 16 seems alot.

      1. Aditya Bhattacharya

        Well even though it's 4766 mhz lpddr4x ram embedded into the soc it still is kinda overpriced 150 would be reasonable at max

    80. Luca D

    83. Bougie

      This computer is faster for 10 bit 4:2:2 shooter by 2-3x. Sony a7s 3 and canon r5 are two examples. This is because of h.265 hardware encoding support. (Specifically 4:2:2)

    84. Iosephus Doyle

      No upgrade path = junk product! These are junk - tell the people the truth! Remember when Macs used RISC CPU's..the M1 chip is just another modern version of the RISC chipset - I am not saying the are technically the same still they are not standard intel Cisc chips/ cpu's. Junk Junk Junk!

      1. Aditya Bhattacharya

        @Iosephus Doyle i mean the other ultrabooks don't have a good upgrade path either linus himself said that the other two windows ultrabooks don't have a good upgrade path the only thing u can upgrade is the ssd and I don't think that's a big downside considering that things these laptops are better in. I myself don't like many apple products which I find unreasonable but these laptops are pretty good also considering the fact they aren't expensive compared to it's competition this laptop is great for audio composers and video editors who want portability and power at the same time

      2. Iosephus Doyle

        @Aditya Bhattacharya I am not am not stupid enough to purchase apple junk. :-)

      3. Aditya Bhattacharya

        Calm down dude why are u so mad

      He looks like threatened by apple

    86. C0rnD0g_

      The M1 is a beast. Not my cup of tea, but got one for my wife to replace her 7th Gen i5 / RX 570 Hackintosh. So far it does everything better/faster (including WoW), and considering this is the first release, can't wait to see the 2nd and 3rd Gen!

    87. iPhilou

      Hi, great vid ! I think i’ll go for this Mini M1, could you recommend a display that would work great with it (ideally in a 24’’, 4k format) ? Thanks

    91. Uthman Baksh

      If this this gets glowing reviews, then I can't wait to see the next generation of Apple Silicon Macs.

    92. Anthony Fraser

      Thank you kindly I watched it 3 times just to understand everything ⚠️🧐🤔I’m buying it


      any American would have to be a fool to ever purchase an apple product again after they banned the Parler app, especially if you are conservative.

    94. Tigerex966

      8 core to 8 core, or else when doing a single core, you must use both threads on intel and AMD to make it fair.

    95. Tigerex966

      You have extremely low expectations, no upgradeability ever, no egpu support, no repairability ever, and soso compatibility. No Boot camp. No 32 bit code. no true windows mode. No OSX version, but Big Sur that means osx 10 all the way to Big sur, about 15 different versions, and you can only use one. And cost a mint to add 8gb for $200. Only 2.7 Teraflops for graphics or 256gb more ssd is $200, 1 TB $400, 2TB you might as well bring $2000, and Apple keeps your base 256GB SSD for another sucker.. However the machine learning, AI, rendering, decoding, encoding DSPS for all of the various formats by special computational hardware software combos, is excellent. Not the fastest at single core or multicore, but very good for the price if you stay away from the 16GB 1 and 2 TB systems, which are not as big of a bargain as the base models, because of apples greed on non upgradeable memory and storage.

      1. Hego Damask II

        You can’t complain about the GPU being 2.6TFlops, that’s quite impressive for integrated graphics. Much more powerful than the Xbox One S and PS4. While consuming wayyyy less power. It’s a Apple entry level chip and isn’t meant to be on the level of modern discrete GPUs from Nvidia or AMD.

    96. Musetekk

      But did you uncheck the fps cap in advanced in WOW?


      GREAT VIDEO!! Question-short as I can-I have a mid-iMac 5k 2107 i7 512 16 with a in @ Apple $1140,-getting REALLY TIRED of occasional beach balls and fans spinning-at times slow.... iMac mini M1 I want 1tb 16 $1448.00 with CARE... If I trade out of pocket price under $400-should I do this?? Have a Tuesday appt...only thing is I am REALLY used to the 5k screen...I do 4K but more 1080 both at 60...what do you think...?? Let me know thanks

      1. adalaza

        What did you end up doing? Personally I don't find the differences between 5K and 4K to be that big

    98. Austin Beck

      Used digital storm the people Linus loves, after a couple months the parts started breaking down and would reset three times a day. I finally sent it back after the digital storm cpu fan completely failed and the system shut down. I lost all my data from a fatal system crash. Never had that problem with my windows laptop or any apple computer I’ve ever purchased. Bought one of the most expensive workstations digital storm had and waited almost two months to get it. Apple is gearing up to wipe out all of the “custom high end” computer companies because they are better I gave your people a fair chance but these built computers are not worth the headache or cost. You don’t save money or time with these custom built systems and the system will crash to often for you to get the performance. You want to hate apple because there taking over the computer industry not because of the product. They are better, fast, have great service and trade in options and they have now apple has just created a economical product that nobody can beat price wise or efficiency wise. Give credit we’re credit is do apple is the best computer company by far. RIP custom built systems
