There are going to be a lot of bargains hitting the market, Intel based, shortly after the M1x Macbook Pros come out.

There are advantages in buying an Intel based Mac!

For instance, when I want to do development I can either (a) wait well over 24 hours for Xcode and the developer command line tools to install, or (b) buy VMware Fusion or Parallels, install Linux Ubuntu in under an hour, and develop on the x86-64 Linux VM - no way on M1.

You can also run Windows in an Intel Mac VM. There's nothing in Windows that I need, but many folks feel differently.

Hmm? 🤔 I didn't have any problems with Xcode on my MBP 13" M1 and as a matter of fact I had more problems with my Apple iMac Pro than the MBP.
