It’s an assumption.

If it works, that’s great. I use a 2018 MacMini (with 32GB RAM) and run VMs on it.

I do like macOS, I just wouldn’t want to run a server on it ;-)

The 16GB RAM limit would be a show-stopper for me.

Unfortunately, Apple don’t have Fusion or Parallels or VirtualBox installed on their demo-units.
