Do you compare yourself to others or just your previous self? I'm not a fan of the former but I am fine with comparing myself harshly but fairly against myself a week ago, a month, ago, a year, ago, and even five years ago. And sure, once in a while, I'll question what I am doing and how I am doing compared to others in similar positions. I still favor self comparisons and evaluations.
So, when Apple's latest M1 chip currently powering its lower end MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and 2021 iPad Pro was released late 2020, there were benchmarks after benchmarks that compared Intel-based MacBooks and Windows laptops against the M1 Macs. And Apple was the clear winner in many if not most of the tests. However, time for those comparisons are over and we should be focusing on the next chip from Apple and how they match up to the M1. It'll be faster, running cooler, and maybe even smaller but how will it compare to the M1? That's the comparison we like to see.
