Developers can apply a Developer transition Kit which comes with an ARM-powered Mac mini and gets going.

Intel to ARM:
Apple has just six months ago launched MacBook air with specification upgrades. One thing is for sure the team wouldn't launch a device unless it is changing the dynamics of the current devices. With MacBook Air, Apple gave consumers something light and power-packed to carry. One can hope that the switch from Intel to ARM is pretty much the same. Also, let's hope price drop doesn't come at the cost of performance getting hampered which is still to be tested.
