Maybe we should start putting GeekBench #s in the sigs.

Is there something less than meaningless because that's what clock speed is in 2020. GeekBench lists it at 3.2Ghz. The pentium IV had a 3.8ghz part. Which would you rather have? Some would argue IPC is a better measure of raw speed but honestly I think in 2020 you've really got to look at workflow specific benchmarks. What are YOU trying to do and how fast is a given system or platform doing it for you. We still buy dulls with spinning rust (and Mac's until very recently). It doesn't matter how fast the CPU, Memory, or Graphics are bolted to a 5400 rpm spinny disk.

To be clear under macOS disk utility the drive doesn't show up even if you select "show all devices" instead of "show only volumes"?

Don't forget to report here when you buy your new M1 Macs and have tried some games. :)

I heard on Inside Mac Games Inside PC Games there are no games for Mac, there is only PC. Alas I will have nothing to test on the Mini and Air on order.
