M1 MacBook Pro and Air review: Apple delivers

  • Publisert 2 måneder siden

    Runtime: 12:57

    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.

Has Apple done enough to help you trust its all new processors?

Note that this is the max power they got, the MacBook Pro has the same chip as the Air. If they could make it better they would. Also note that the Pro has 16G RAM, that is intentional, to avoid putting too much pressure on the CPU. This, while is a huge improvement for the Air, it is not for Pro Macs. In fact, I wouldn't call the M1 Pro a Pro, that is just a MacBook. Making this great for the Air is something, scaling these up, to make them powerful enough for the desktop Mac Pro machines is another thing.

Absolutely! I'm blown away with the performances of these new chips! I'm only waiting for the 14" MacBook Pro to replace my 2014 15" MacBook Pro and once the new iMac comes out, I'm going to replace my 2011 27"!

Got the Air and it is incredible! Replacing both my quad core 17" and 8core 15" Macbook Pros as favourite Macs. Might get a Mac mini and see if it can replace my Mac Pro or iMac Pro haha. But will probably wait for the M2 to see, I do think they will pay for themselves in energy consumption!

The main problem with reduced instruction set chips is the compatibility of applications (programs). Lot of programs (especially for scientific applications) are not compiled or written for it. Showing few applications for the purpose of demonstration for video processing can be quite misleading. You must address the issue in depth otherwise this presentation is the same as others.

Hey! I'm trying to decide which of these Macbooks would be best for me, the Air or Pro. I use photoshop to design things like event flyers, cd covers, social media images etc. And also use a software called Movavi to edit videos. Nothing too fancy, mainly trimming, pasting and adding various video clips and audio files together to create videos that are roughly 45 mins to an hour long. Can the Air handle this easy or should I get the pro?

I bought the M1 MacBook Pro (16GB RAM, 512GB Storage) and have been using it for two weeks. I use Zoom for work and also work with a lot of multi-track music so I thought the better microphone and the heavy lifting of the pro's active cooling would be worth the extra $300. So far, the fan hasn't turned on once. Lightning quick. Incredible battery life. I've been able to use it for up to 12-14 hours of heavy work before the reserve battery kicks in. Unexpectedly, I am in LOVE with the Touch Bar and it's functionality. I've set my favourites to pop up on the Touch Bar when opening a new webpage and it's surprisingly a lot quicker than the conventional "click & type" (Fun fact: if/when you get ads from videos you can use the Touch Bar to skip ahead instead of waiting the 5+ seconds). As for the two ports, so far I haven't needed more than the two. I bought a USB-C adapter for when I need more connections but so far it hasn't been necessary. 10/10 review, and a small part of me also wonders if the MacBook Air would have done just as good of a job, but I'm extremely happy with my new laptop!

Referring to the webcam "It's unacceptable when we're all working from home" seems like a bad statement. It wasn't predictable that we'd all be working from home at this point and Apple would have commenced manufacturing way before the lockdown. Should have said "its unacceptable, and it's especially unfortunate since we're all working from home." That way it doesn't sound like your implying Apple should have known about the sudden mass prevalence of working from home.

when this M1 fails cause they all do how will you reset the nvram, or smc, it's all gone with previous Intel based Macs, now with Rosetta all seems working as far as performance goes, but when something goes wrong, where is that say about Macs are built to fix themselves by themselves, and I'm not even talking about migrating from a previous Mac let alone bootcamping, Apple configurator 2 seems to be not so efficient in some situations, go and have look at Mr Macintosh and don' to fall for this.

This M1 MacBook Pro is the first MacBook I’ve had with the touch-bar and I absolutely love it. I spend much of week doing Keynote presentations through Zoom and the touch-bar options in those programs are godsends. So I guess I’m one of the people that Apple keeps making the touch-bar for. Sorry.

I'm honestly not a fan of having a touch screen MacBook. Not only would the screen look awful with a bunch of fingerprints but it kind of defeats the purpose of an iPad, especially a Pro. I am okay with integration with apps but there needs to be adjustments to where it will work well with a MacBook as well as it works with an iOS device.

Normally I say this in regards to operating systems, but this video alone highlighted a few things that would just really bug me for not working how they should. I'm going to wait until developers adapt to the M1 and they put a decent camera in there. Also touchscreen wouldn't hurt.
