Apple’s one more thing...
Explore the MacBook Pro

Apple just launched three products.

Back in June, Apple announced that the Mac was taking a ‘huge leap’ forward. Yesterday, they shared what that meant with the new Apple Silicon chip for Mac called M1. Originally, a Mac needed multiple chips (processor, I/O, security, and memory) to operate. Now with the M1, these technologies are combined into a single system on a chip (SoC).

With 16 billion transistors, the M1 boasts high performance and high efficiency, meaning that it will use a fraction of the power to deliver quality experiences. Apple claims that typically PCs can’t achieve this balance, especially with integrated graphics - so expect gaming to be lit.

To compliment M1, Apple also shared that Big Sur, Apple's new macOS announced in June, will be widely available on November 12. Big Sur will be supported on older Macs too, so you don’t need to drop $$$ on a new laptop to experience the UI facelift and features.

So where will this incredibly smart chip be used?

💻The new MacBook Air starts at $999, with the CPU speed 3.5x faster and GPU speed 5x faster with the M1 chip. Also, most users will appreciate the silent, fanless design.

💻The new MacBook Pro starts at $1299 and boasts up to 20 hours of battery life - the longest of any Mac ever. It comes with 2.8x CPU performance, up to 5x the graphics speed, and improved microphones.

🖥️The new Mac Mini starts at $699, with up to 3x faster CPU performance and up to 6x faster graphics. As a desktop, it’s tiny but powerful.

The M1 chip models are available starting November 17, or you can preorder online today. Until then, you can explore the glorious memes circling from the event.
