The latest Mac Mini is using Apple's M1 processor, but instead of turning it on, I decided to take it apart. I hope I didn't break it.

    back in my days we used to call this kind of thing a terminal. not a computer. hell even the HP/Wyse/Dell terminals actually have hardware inside you can upgrade, and closer to a SNES-sized PC. this mac can be adequately called a terminal.

    I imagine there's no SODIMM option because there isn't a "normal" memory controller on the M1 SoC, so to add SODIMM support they'd have to also add a suitable memory controller, and bring all those needed signals off-chip.

    Linus I love you but why would Apple’s new “unified memory” be upgradeable? It’s not DDR4. It’s not just a stick. It's completely different. Storage, yes be upset we can't stick our own m.2 in there but “unified memory” is obviously not upgradable. Do you upgrade the ram in your phone? Or maybe you’d like to upgrade the cache on a processor?

    Why is it the same number of dollars US as Pounds GB £699 $699 - stupid.- Apple should make this with 16 GB incorporated and let you upgrade with SODIMM DDR4 RAM and NVME slots and included somehow more USB slots so you can get a decent keyboard and mouse working and then still more devices connected. (I think in at least 6 to 8 months the compatibility will be significantly better) and it will run a bit better. This board is about the same size as a medium performance graphics card.

    Very disappointed with Apple. They keep going in the wrong direction. First they charged insane amounts for RAM and storage upgrades. Then they remove the option to upgrade storage. I am thinking if they add the m.2 back on the next generation I’ll buy it, then next gen comes around then remove the RAM’s SODIMM slots and they remove the 64GB RAM option and give you a max of 16GB RAM and they take away two of the four thunderbolt ports. They need Steve Jobs back.

    Well if you wonder what AMD and Intel are going to do, it's because you don't know that at least AMD has made part of their chips RISC-Like on the Athlon, because x86/x64 in the current implementation of Intel sucks; RISC is the future, we could have 1024-bit data in RISC instructions for massive SIMD processing. Many things are simplified and others completely eliminated in RISC Architecture, as opposed to the current CISC of AMD and Intel, so a lot of circuitry is eliminate, if it hasn't already, we could have more CPU Registers and Cache and new level of optimization and design can be done, without the inefficiency of CISC. I hope ARM shows us the way to such CPU Desktop design, pretty sure AMD and Intel are thinking about it, I have tweet @AMD about it to let them know we know and want the most efficient execution possible, maybe their CPUs are already RISC internally

    5:28 Also, quick note, those "warranty void if removed" stickers have been ruled many times in court to not actually be legally enforceable. They aren't even supposed to put them on there anymore, but they do it anyway to try to scare customers out of their own rights, or make it as much as a hassle for them as possible denying their potential claims until they just give up and roll over (not many people have the time/money to go fight Apple in court, even if they're in the right.) So yea, don't fall for that BS. Fight against it, because legal precedent has already been set that those types of stickers are technically NOT enforceable in court. I wish they'd outright ban them doing it, but big companies keep doing it anyway. This applies to everyone, not just Apple (Microsoft and Sony still put the same BS stickers inside their consoles even though the same principle applies.) https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/ftc-warranty-stickers-illegal/

    Apple loves to make things as difficult to repair as possible. They've just gotten worse and worse (more aggressive) about it over the years as well. And yes, I do watch Louis Rossman, but I've agreed with his stance long before I ever heard of him since it's just the reality of the situation (before anyone thinks/saying I'm "blindly" following him without thinking for myself.) Still, my first computer ever was a Macintosh back in the early 90s, so I do still have nostalgic memories of using their products, regardless of their BS over the years. So I'm not a "blind hater" either, nor do I think Microsoft/Windows is perfect either (plenty of problems with them too, but at least you can repair/self-repair their stuff a bit easier.)
