Along with revealing its first proprietary ARM-based processor, Apple also showed off the MacBook Air with M1, the company’s first laptop to feature the new silicon.
Other specs include an SSD that is 2x faster than its predecessor’s, 15 hours of web browsing, a new “signal processor” in its front-facing camera and P3 wide-colour now being featured in the laptop’s display.
Apple claims that its new CPU is “3.5x faster” than the previous-generation version of the MacBook Air (2020), which released back in May of 2020.
It’s also worth noting that the new laptop is entirely silent because it doesn’t feature a fan.
The company claims that the new MacBook Air with an M1 chip is faster than 98 percent of Windows laptops sold last year.
