In our review of the MacBook Pro M1, we found that it is even more capable than the excellent MacBook Air, especially because it is equipped with a fan to keep things cool. Air relies solely on a radiator, which tends to slow down the system during sustained loads, such as long video playback. Meanwhile, the MacBook Pro has been just as zippy as it runs universal applications built for the M1 chip and has managed to mimic Intel software as well.
Some professionals may feel limited by the system’s two USB-C ports, as well as the fact that it only supports one external display. In addition, because it is built on Apple’s new ARM-based architecture, there is no support for external GPUs. If you’re a more demanding user, you might feel better with one of the existing Intel-based MacBooks.
When it comes to everyday performance, the MacBook Pro and Air equipped with the M1 also have similar performance. So it may be better to take Air with the same specifications for $ 1,250 from Apple. You will also get the advantage of a slightly lighter car and a completely quiet one with a fan or other moving parts. Both the Air and Pro also come equipped with Apple’s Retina display (though the Pro is a little brighter) and the company’s refurbished excellent keyboards, which provide a decent ride for comfortable typing.
