1984 Apple’s Macintosh Commercial (HD)
The next M1 gen. is now!
Apple today announced its long-awaited major redesign for the MacBook Pro, featuring configurations with the M1 Pro and M1 Max chip, a mini-LED display with ProMotion, an HDMI port and SDXC card reader, charging with MagSafe 3, a notch housing a 1080p webcam, and more.
The MacBook Pro features a new design and is available with 14.2-inch and 16.2-inch display sizes. The 14.2-inch model is 15.5mm thick and weighs 3.5 pounds, while the 16.2-inch model is 16.8mm thick and weighs 4.7 pounds. The all-new aluminum enclosure also contains a completely new thermal design. It continues to be available in Silver and Space Gray.
The New Apple M1 MacBook Pro Max and M1 MacBook Pro 2021
Next-Gen M1 is now!
My apple purchase timing is notoriously awful. No Kreskin here, as evidenced by my purchase of the PowerMac 7200 just months before the new line of iMacs.
The new M1 Chip is now inside the Apple Air and MacBook Pro laptops and M1 Mini desktop; replacing the old Intel processor chip architecture is a game-changer for Apple and consumers. The increased processing capability and overall efficiency are touted all over Youtube and the PC Mag video. What this means for the consumer is now we must consider whether the price difference between the similar hardware Air vs. MacBook Pro makes the cost difference justified to push purchase on the Pro. Another important consideration is the lack of a fan within the Air hardware architecture, while the Pro includes fan cooling. Battery life with the new more processing efficiency of the M1 is ridiculously great on both with a slight edge to the MacBook Pro with a fan.
Anyone considering purchasing the new M1 chipped Air and or MacBook pro will have to contend with the software incapabilities with commonly used programs like Adobe CC (Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, Premiere, etc.). Cisco VPN also doesn’t work with M1 and Big Sur operating systems at this time. Give the industry a little time to catch up with the 10,000 LB gorilla that is Apple, and we should expect all to work out compatibility issues by mid-2021. For now, creatives who process effective video content may need the MacBook Pro’s increased operating efficiency and ability to hold the load (see fan cooling). The rest of us can now save money but not sacrifice as much performance with the new M1 Air laptop.
Remember, these M1 macs are first-generation M1 Silica. Neither laptop includes a new 1080P facetime camera; instead, the old 720P remains.
The base model desktop, mac mini, maybe the sleeper’s best desktop value/performance for 2020/21.

M1 Pro vs. Max — What Apple Didn’t Tell You!
Why no Face ID? 14 vs 16-inch thermals? E-cores vs P-cores? M1 Pro vs M1 Max? M2 Predictions? Mac mini Pro? Mac Pro? Why the notch? RAM vs unified memory? Why so many SKUs? AAA gaming? Why no Center Stage? 10-bit panel?
THE ULTIMATE AFFORDABLE RECORDING STUDIO COMPUTER?! – Mac mini M1
So when I heard that Apple will ditch Intel (thermal throttling is clearly their fault) I thought let’s buy and try it. I got the macMini M1 and just upgraded the RAM from 8 to 16gigs. Bought it via notebooksbilliger.de – was a lot cheaper. The price was 840€. It’s absolutely dead silent, performance is good and every day new plugin manufacturers update their software and you get native support. The price and value of the system is outstanding in the class. If you can wait, wait for the upcuming m1x architecture. It will be way faster and until then almost all plugins will be updated.
