Good Requirements for Docker Desktop on macOSVentura

I want to know if this if this is more-than-enough (not just sufficient or minimum requirements) for using Docker on macOS Ventura :

  • Apple M2 chip with 8‑core CPU, 10‑core GPU, 16‑core Neural Engine
  • 24GB unified memory
  • 1TB SSD storage

Or is this really required ?

  • Apple M1 Max chip with 10-core CPU, 32-core GPU and 16-core Neural Engine
  • 64GB unified memory

It depends on what you want to use it for and what are the requirements of the aplpications that you want to run in containers. I have a MacBook with a simple Apple M1 and 16GB RAM and it is “more than enough” for me. Docker Desktop will run a vitual machine and you can configure the amount of memory and cpu and disk size that you want to use with Docker Desktop.

You can see I don’t use much

So we can’t tell you which MacBook you will need. It depends on your needs.
