Not personally interested in laptops, but I am impressed with the progress Apple has made with its custom processors. Apple was the first company to introduce a 5-nanometer processor. I'm waiting for AMD and Intel to catch up. Until recently, Intel was struggling to go from 14-nanometers to 10-nanometers.
The biggest chip manufacturer is in Tawain. It has been reported that Intel has contracted for 100% of the not yet available 3-nanometer chip production. In other words, everyone else is out of luck and would have to look elsewhere to produce faster chips.
