Outside of breathless tech nerds on tech forums, very few people care about whether there's an Arm or Intel cpu inside their computer. They just want a decent computer that can help them get their work done.

Don't buy the 16" Macbook with the 5300M and 5500M GPUs. With the lid open you cannot connect it to an external monitor without the power spiking, the machine getting too hot, the fans running at 5000rpm, and then the machine throttling the CPU down because of the heat. Apple has known about it since November and done nothing.

If they needed an intel machine right now, I can see buying an MBP. If I had to get one of these, I'd make sure it works with my job's software and not worry about the ARM Macs until the transition is complete.

ARM Macs in 3 or 4 years will likely blow away both first gen ARM Macs and last generation Intel Macs. Purchasing an Intel based Mac this year is fine.

Who in their right mind would buy intel based macbooks now?

It's not like there are any alternatives currently available. Also, if you want Windows support, that won't be coming to ARM Macs anytime soon, if ever (that we know of).

Who in their right mind would buy intel based macbooks now?

Me. I just ordered two days ago. I need one single machine, which is capable of working with Catalina and Windows VM and Linux VM and Mojave VM at the same time. 16" is too heavy. Old 13" had problems with keyboard and not enough RAM.

Who in their right mind would wait for a toy computer, not able to work with professional software for several years? I still can remember, how troublesome switching was from PowerPC to Intel.
