Apple announces new MacBook Air with M1 chip
Apple has announced its next-generation MacBook Air, featuring the all-new M1 chip that has an 8-core CPU which performs up to 3.5x faster than the previous generation.
With up to an 8-core GPU, graphics are up to 5x faster on the new MacBook Air, and the M1 chip’s storage controller and latest flash technology deliver up to 2x faster SSD performance. The machine is now faster than the chips in 98 percent of PC laptops sold in the past year, according to Apple.
With the new MacBook Air, Apple has removed the fan, which means no matter what users are doing, it remains completely silent. The machine has not had any notable design changes. Battery performance lasts up to 15 hours when wirelessly web browsing and up to 18 hours of video playback — the longest battery life ever on a MacBook Air.
Pre-orders for the machine start today, with availability beginning next week. The new MacBook Air starts at $999, or $899 for education buyers.
