Got it delivered yesterday. Damn, this is a sweet upgrade so far. It is markedly faster than my old machine, but that's not strange since the old one was bought in '13.

I went into a Mac store though and compared it to the top of the line present Intel iMacs, and it was still markedly faster when opening browsers and so on.

I'm installing a few games now to se how it handles graphics.

Apple loses in the Epic Games v Apple lawsuit, must allow apps to make purchases outside of Apple's ecosystem (and without Apple getting it's 30% cut).

Being lazy is bad; unless you still get what you want, then it's called "patience".
