Apple unveils new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Apple Silicon M1 chip
Apple has unveiled its next-generation MacBook Pro, featuring the company’s new M1 chip that offers an 8-core CPU, which when paired with the MacBook Pro’s active cooling system, is up to 2.8x faster than the previous generation.
Though the machine doesn’t offer any design changes, such as the rumored new 14.1-inch screen size, the new MacBook Pro has an 8-core GPU which is up to 5x faster, making it 3x faster than the best-selling Windows laptop in its class.
Other new features in the new 13-inch MacBook Pro include studio-quality mics for clear recordings and calls, and Apple’s latest camera ISP in the M1 chip enables sharper images and more detail in shadows and highlights on video calls. The new MacBook Pro also delivers best-in-class security with the Secure Enclave in M1 and Touch ID. And it features two Thunderbolt ports with USB 4 support to connect to more peripherals than ever, including Apple’s Pro Display XDR in full 6K resolution.
The new MacBook Pro is priced at $1,299, and $1,199 for education, with Apple describing it as the “ultimate expression of what the M1 chip can do.” Pre-orders are live now, with availability beginning next week.
