Apple’s Developer Transition Kit, that Mac mini with A12Z chip that the company has handed out to developers to start working on migrating their applications, is starting to be shipped . And as it could not be otherwise, there are already those who share their reception through social networks.

They can defend themselves with a ” that’s not a computer image, but their box “, but I don’t think Apple has decided to have too much wide sleeve with what is going to be the future of their computers. Still, we have to say that we are not made of stone: if someone dares to publish benchmarks or pictures of the inside of the Developer Transition Kit, we will take a good look at it.
