Look, I'm all Apple and enjoy the experience, but their hardware lags state-of-the-art by a mile and then some. Is what it is.
They might have something with the M1. But for the entirety of their Intel existence their machine specs have always been underwhelming. On the CPU front and the GPU front.
Not sure I agree with this. In the 'overall' sense, the specs do not match what others are doing. But they control the interaction between HW and SW, so they optimized development that they can perform better than those who quote faster CPU/GPU speeds.
The problem with most people seems to be that if you go Apple, you have to STAY in that world. I, for one, do not mind this as if I have to integrate my kids, my Ex Wife, and my world, it's a no brainer. (And the equipment seems to last FAR longer than comparable units.)
Back to the OP. I have a few friends who have Tesla. Yes, they realize there are problems, but Tesla has been more than responsive for fixing things, making updates, etc. Both understand we are in very new territory. I have not heard ONE of my friends say 'I regret buying Tesla'. Kool aide consumed.
