At its “One More Thing” event, Apple announced it’s first-ever MacBook Pro laptop that will run on Apple-designed processor. This latest reveal welcomes the new era of Mac computers.
Now that Apple has switched to Arm-based MacBook Pro, the line of products will be emphasized as features would appeal to both creative and technical experts.
The new MacBook Pro is priced at $1,299 and has a 13-inch size, replacing its previous entry-level model. The new model is all set to feature Apple’s new M1 processor – apparently the world’s fastest CPU core, integrated graphics, and big power and performance gains. It’ll also release macOS 11 Big Sur which according to Apple is designed to benefit from the new hardware.
In addition, the performance of the new 13-inch MacBook Pro is 2.8 times faster and that graphics are 5 times quicker than its previous generation. The new MacBook also features an active cooling fan system, a Touch Bar, and two Thunderbolt 4 ports.
The battery life has gotten 17 hours of web browsing and 20 hours of video playback – 10 extra hours from its previous battery life. Configuration includes 8GB of RAM with 256GB, 512GB, 1TB, and 2TB SSD options. This is major news not because Apple has come up with in-house chips bit for Arm-based laptops in general.
Apple has been excited about its own chips and has showed off applications like Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, Microsoft Office, etc. back in June. Lightroom, however, will be available next month and Photoshop will be launched in 20201.
