Initial Mac Models

Apple unveiled three initial Mac models that will launch with the M1 chip this month. Those will be the MacBook Air, the entry-level MacBook Pro (13-inch) and the Mac Mini. The company disclosed performance gains of up to 3.5X for the MacBook Air, up to 3X for the Mac Mini and up to 2.8X for the MacBook Pro, compared with previous Intel-based models for the three Macs. On battery life, Apple said the 13-inch MacBook Pro can as much as double its battery life to 20 hours, from 10 hours previously, while the MacBook Air can gain six hours with up to 18 hours of usage. Notably, the M1-powered MacBook Air does not require a fan, Apple said.

Apple has not raised the starting pricing for the three M1-powered Macs, and in fact has lowered the Mac Mini starting price by $100 to $699. The MacBook Air will continue to be offered at a starting price of $999, while the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro will continue to start at $1,299. The three Macs can be ordered starting Tuesday, with shipping to begin some time next week, Apple said.
