New MacBooks with M1 Chip – Laptops from the Future



Yesterday Apple announced new laptops, whose key difference from all other company laptops is the use of the proprietary Apple M1 processor. Now, in more detail, it is worth dwelling on the 13-inch MacBook Pro model. And this is a really big change since this is the first ever ARM-based MacBook Pro. The novelty, priced at $ 1,299, is intended to finally replace the previous MacBook Pro.

And if you believe the words of the company, the above novelty is equipped with “the world’s fastest CPU core, the fastest integrated graphics”, in connection with which the laptop gets a fairly large gain in power and performance compared to previously used chips from Intel. And one more thing. The new MacBook Pro will run out of the box with macOS 11 Big Sur processor, which Apple says has been designed specifically to take advantage of the new hardware. This suggests the idea that some, at least the lowest-performing laptops running on Intel processors, may experience problems when working on macOS 11 Big Sur, but this is just a guess so far.

Be that as it may, Apple claims that the new 13-inch MacBook Pro will perform as much as 2.8 times faster than the previous model, while the graphics will be up to five times faster than the previous generation. The good news is that the laptop will still have an active cooling system, a large trackpad, TouchPad, as well as two Thunderbolt 4 ports. Apple also promises that thanks to the use of a proprietary processor, the battery life of the new item will also increase. The laptop will be able to give up to 17 hours when browsing the web, as well as up to 20 hours when playing videos. And according to the company, that’s 10 hours longer than what the previous MacBook was capable of.

So the new product can rightfully be called the company’s most autonomous laptop from the MacBook Pro series. There will be few configuration options – 8 or 16 gigabytes of RAM, as well as either 256 gigabytes, 512 gigabytes, 1 terabyte, or 2 terabytes of storage provided by an SSD drive. Also, although it is not noticeable, but thanks to the transition to the ARM-based M1 processor, the company could potentially make its laptops even thinner. However, this is unlikely to happen, because the company clearly wants to use the additional space in order to install even more productive hardware.
