Apple has updated three Mac with its own M1 processors: the Macbook Air, the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro, and the Mac mini. Will Intel-based apps run? Will they be fast? Will they live up to Apple's battery life claims? Nilay Patel and Dieter Bohn have a thousand questions, and almost all of them have been answered.

Idk about the processor but make sure the power supply doesn’t touch the rest of the system and short circuit.

If editing, storing large files and creating vlog content is the main purpose for a Mac, which model do you think will be best?

I want to know if macbook air M1 is good for automation or not? Does it support it? Am a student of 2nd yr EE and I want a laptop which helps me in future too and not only for college purpose. So if I buy any laptop now, it should be helpful to me in futures too. Thank You

INTEL dropped the ball and just didnt innovate. AMD running circles around them in terms of performance/$. Now they losing Apple as a client lol I mean cmon Intel. Even my next desktop is going to probably be a threadripper. What is it going to take for intel to step up its game ? apple selling standalone processors lol?

Macbook pro 13inch only comes with M1 in the first 2 entry level models. There is no $1900 MacBook pro with M1 so please correct that its wrong information.

Hey Verge! Great review! Are you or anyone you know experiencing Finder crashes when dragging an image from Safari to a Network mounted drive? It's happening to me 100% of the time with my MBA 2020 M1. This is something that works perfectly fine with my MPB13" 2017 in Big Sur. Seems to be the only major issue I am having.

"Just add the touch screen. It'll be fine". As nice as these laptops are, and they're VERY nice, this one comment by Nilay exemplifies why I'm going to wait and see what Apple does. I just purchased a 13" Lenovo Yoga 6 2-in-1 for $595. The performance and battery life, while obviously not as good as the Air's, are just fine in normal use. That, combined with touch, the convertible form factor, and $400 in savings, make the Air a tough sell for me. Your mileage, of course, may vary!
David Ross
David Ross 2 päivää sitten
@Harry One Yes it is--the non-touch, non-convertible, $400 more expensive level. If you don't care about those things, the Air is undoubtedly a very good computer. If you do, as I do, The Yoga 6 makes sense.

I have a 2010 macbook pro that I REALLY want to upgrade (I've already switched out the fan system, the battery, & the hard drive 4 times - I think it's time to move onto a new comp). I've been waiting for stupid things like the butterfly keyboard to be worked out. This seems like this is a good time to upgrade to, potentially, the M1 Air. I do have a question.. on my current Macbook I have the 2016 Adobe Design Suit .. which I think was the last disk collection they had before switching to Adobe Cloud. I don't have the funds to constantly pay for Adobe Cloud, so I want to carry over the old suit .. do you think they'll run on the M1?

I do have a mix of intel software too - I've not noticed any issue and it works as it should

M1 MacBook Pro that has thunderbolt 3.0 (40 Gbps) takes 1 second to transfer a file of 1.3 GB to another M1 Mac that has thunderbolt 3.0 by Network sharing. That's 4 times faster than Ethernet 10 Gbps or speed of 342 MB/s. Most consumers have their computers with Ethernet speed of 1 Gbps.
