As a comparison, here's my early 2019 iMac19,1 Core i9 8c, 72GB RAM, 2TB SSD, AMD Radeon Pro Vega 48 (bought son's fully blown iMac used for animation).
Single 1309, 67% of M2 Pro mini
Multi 8021, 53% of M2 Pro mini
Compute Metal 53883
Compute OpenCL 49436
Cost (can't remember but over $5K)
M2 Pro mini, 10/16/16 32GB 2TB $2,299
Studi Display $1,599
Keyboard and Mouse $298 (keyboard with TouchID)
Total $4,096 (funny total because it's 2 to the 12th power) <80% of iMac i9
Wish I could simply plug a Mac mini into my iMac display.

It seems like an expanse that is only needed by such a small minority of users. It seems more likely that iPhone 15 goes completely wireless charging.iPads can be used just as simply as they could before, nobody has to use multitasking features. There is no multi-user support, so, huh? This must be why I see so many upset people on their flights to grandma’s house: watching movies on their iPad is TOO HARD. Gimme a break.
Fidonet127 said:The silliest notion is Apple moving to USB-C means that every device will transmit at full USB-C speeds. I think higher speeds will also depend upon how much storage the phone uses. The pros who do video need higher speeds. I’m surprised they haven’t complained about the slow speeds more. Regular people are fine with the USB-2 or WiFi speeds. I can’t remember the last time I plugged my phone in to the computer.
How do I use any of these programs to draw a family tree instead of using commercial genealogy program?
Keynote is basically a page layout program. All of the iWork apps are good at page layout.
In Numbers, you probably create a bunch of 1 cell tables and connect them with connection lines. Same process as Keynote. The crazy way is to merge cells and draw cell borders, or overlay lines. You have to be Tufte-esque OCD personality to do it that way. With Keynote, you have pixel precision control, alignment guides, the connection lines move with the box, etc. The only advantage with Numbers is that it has more of an infinite canvas, which a dedicated family tree program would have.
You can insert all the same shapes and objects and connect them with lines in Numbers as you do with Keynote. So insert text boxes, connect them with connection lines. The connection lines are important because they will continue to connect your text boxes when you move the text boxes. All the same pixel precision placement controls are there.
Another option is OmniGraffle. I think it has layers even. Not free.
iWork apps all use the core page layout, table and text code. Like, you can insert a table into a Keynote page, and you can do spreadsheet things in the table, like math and stuff. Not all the features and functions have made it to iPadOS yet though.

Or there are apps in the Mac App Store specifically built for this purpose.
