MacBook Pro 13-inch M1
Apple Inc.’s MacBook Pro 13 serves as the company’s entry into its vaunted Pro range of laptops. But armed with the company’s Arm-based M1 chip, it stands right up to its more powerful siblings in the range. The MacBook Pro 13 is powered by the M1, a powerhouse Arm chip with 8-cores, an 8-core GPU and a 16-core Neural Engine, up to 16GB of RAM and up to 2TB of SSD storage. Other than the extremely impressive specs, the Cupertino, Calif.-based company also wowed with the introduction of an up-to 20-hour battery (rated for 17 hours of wireless web and 20 hours of Apple TV app movie playback). All this fun starts at $1,299.
