Apple has just revealed a trio of updated Mac computers — new versions of the MacBook Air, the 13" MacBook Pro, and the Mac Mini — which ditch the Intel processors in favor of the M1, the first in a family of Apple’s own Arm-based CPUs.
The new chipset will provide a big boost in power and overall performance for the devices, delivering up to 3.5x faster CPU, up to 6x faster GPU, up to 15x faster machine learning capabilities, and battery life up to 2x longer than ever before. Unfortunately, though, they're sticking with the same stale design that's gone largely untouched for the last dozen or so years. We miss the days of Apple innovating aesthetically as much as technologically, but perhaps that's not a priority for the company with Steve Jobs no longer at the helm.
Due out on Nov. 17 with pricing starting at just $699 USD, head right here to get your pre-order in.
