While i dont like apple, moving away from X86 is the right thing to do. ( moving away from ppc was a mistake )

I have not heard this about the M2.

The low spec M2 is worse than the low spec M1. Is it coincidence that the PPC G5 was worse than the G4? I think they should've went with AMD like all the major PCs went since AMD is cheaper than Intel. And not to mention, AMD has a higher performance still. But, it might be a while until AMD gets their chips working good on laptops though...

Is there a high spec M2 and how does it compare to an AMD?  I thought the reason Apple changed to a different CPU again was because they didn't want to be impacted by a third party manufacturer.

Apple is unique in that they can get away with doing changes like this at all.

Id say it was more about total control than being impacted. Apple is a bunch of power hungry elitist f-ers.  

But ya, id imagine they have more than one level of chip. "M2 pro", or some such stupidly named thing.
