  1. interestingly although Catalina did get Safari 15, it's not using the new layout option... that's gonna be annoying when I use my 2011 MBP... because I only use that occasionally. 

  2. I've now fully switched to Safari for all my browsing. the new interfaces of Safari 15 on macOS and Safari in iOS 15 are fucking awesome and I love them. in a world where everyone uses basically the same design Apple has found a way to make something different that also works very well.

      There are some people who really despise the G5 systems; sounds like they're one of them.

  3. but the time it takes to get up and running is significantly longer. not to mention it bricking from updates is far more common than macOS.
  4. did you try holding down command+option+r when booting? also do you have another Mac and an external drive handy? you could install macOS to the external drive then boot it on the Mac Mini and clone it to the new drive.
  5. a great quote i saw online: "Linux is only free if you don't value your time". that's my perspective on it. i use it often as for some stuff i need ti's just the best option, but it's much more time consuming than my macbook pro. with my macbook i just set it up, updates are seamless and if something does go wrong i can just restore from a time machine backup and be up and running again within an hour.
  6. i'm so so so happy with my 2015 MBP. i had some doubts when i was buying it but i'm so happy i did buy it. it's the perfect mix of thinness and ports. it's crazy what i regularly plug in to it that i'd need shitty dongles for with a newer Mac. 

     

    it's also very funny that while i do need a usb-a to ethernet adaptor, jit's a much better experience than a type c one in my experience. 

     

    like, i owned a 2017 MBP for a few months which to be fair was faulty, but i had much more random disconnects with dongles on that than i do with this one using either thunderbolt 2 or usb-a...

      i'd recommend a 2015, older than that and you won't get Monterey. that's an extra year at least of software support if that matters to you. 

      Not really as it's basically gonna be running audio programs.

      in that case why not get a unibody 2012? those are limited to catalina but have upgradable ram and use standard ssd's unlike the newer ones.

      i'll check it out when i get home, but have you heard postmodern jukebox do it?

  9. i doubt they can go ARM like Apple has this early. the M1 was in the works for years. there were rumours about apple silicon powered Mac's back in 2015...
  10. i've kinda realised something. i always used to want the latest OS's and software and the latest features, but especially the last few macOS releases have brought nothing to the table for me that i'd want. i think the new design in Big Sur is ugly, and all of Catalina's new features is all stuff i never use. i'm probably just gonna stick a few versions behind since the last version of macOS that had anything to offer was Mojave, being dark mode. i might upgrade my MBP to Catalina to get security updates once mojave becomes eol but tbh there's not much point. people get by using 10.11 still so like... 

    idk i guess i've realised that having the latest software has basically 0 use.. it just makes my computers slow and bloated. 

  11. update, i installed Mojave (because i had an installer backed up and downloading catalina wiht my internet takes 3 hours) and it feels like a completely different computer. it's honestly insane how big of a difference especially in fluidity with the graphics it makes...

      There's a reason I still run Mojave on all of my machines. Only one of my laptops has Big Sur on it, and it's just used for testing. Mojave is where I do all of my work on that computer.
