90% MacBook Air with M1 review: A computing revolution
Source: Tom's Guide English
This MacBook Air with M1 review has shown why its amazing endurance and shockingly good speed combine to take the MacBook Air to new heights. If only it packed a couple more ports and slimmed down its bezels, the new MacBook Air might be 5-star perfect. The Dell XPS 13 has much smaller bezels, but it trails behind the MacBook Air in performance and battery life. You could save $650 with a similarly configured $999 Asus ZenBook 13, and get a few ports too, but you'd be sacrificing performance and around an hour of endurance. For those who live and work in the Apple ecosystem, though, the new MacBook Air is the easiest buying decision you've had in ages.

94% Apple MacBook Air (M1 2020) – Apple Silicon takes flight (review)
Source: Gadgetguy English
If you’re in the market for a new Mac, it certainly makes sense to opt for an M1 model. Or wait until the model you want has undergone an M1 overhaul. Apple says the switchover will take about another 18 months. The more you demand of your Mac, the more you’ll appreciate the M1’s performance boost. The Apple MacBook Air (M1 2020)’s silent fanless design and extra battery life further sweeten the deal. That said, there’s no need to dump your Intel Mac just yet. Apple continued supporting PowerPC Macs for another four years and should do at least the same for Intel machines. But when your current Mac is ready for the big recycling centre in the sky, the M1 processor will make for a welcome upgrade. If you’re after a productivity companion but don’t need loads of horsepower, you might lament the lack of a 15/16-inch MacBook Air. As a result, you’re forced to step up to the pricey and overpowered 16-inch MacBook Pro if you want some extra screen real estate.

This Is The BEST Laptop For Most People
Source: Pocketnow English
As Michael Fisher recalls from his 2013 unit.. It became clear that ultra-portables would only be good for light to moderate loads. We can credit Apple for re-inventing the modern laptop design, but the promise of a powerful machine remained incomplete. What's funny is that the Intel partnership they so heavily claimed as what made the first MacBook Air possible is exactly what they needed to get rid of in order to deliver. The reason why this M1 MacBook Air is so important, is because if I asked you what your dream laptop would be, I know few people would prefer a heavy brick with a washed out screen, plus little endurance and a hefty price tag. We all want the best value for our investment, and after testing this Air for five months, I actually think it's too good for the money. I even debate why anyone would want to pay more for a MacBook Pro. I'm Jaime Rivera with Pocketnow and this is our extended review sponsored by iVANKY. Stick around to learn how iVANKY can solve one of my few complaints.

90% Apple MacBook Air M1 review: Mac to the future
Source: Gadgets Now English
A really good machine is one that just continues to do its job smoothly and efficiently with you doing what you are meant to — just using it. The M1 MacBook Air is essentially that machine. It’s really fast, rarely heats up and remains light and compact as always. Add to it the ridiculously good battery life combined with a super efficient processor and you are staring at the near-perfect laptop. Yes, the webcam still seems stuck in time but M1 makes it far better than any other laptop.

Apple MacBook Air (M1, Late 2020) review – the MacBook Air is a more viable option than ever
Source: Laptop Media English
So, if you are invested in the Apple ecosystem, and you currently own an iPhone, iPad, or other product from the same manufacturer, your life will be slightly easier. And whether you should raise your budget to get a MacBook Pro 13 (Late 2020) should be decided on your daily work routine. Yes, heavier (and longer) tasks will make use of the active cooling of the latter, but if your daily work consists of e-mailing, photo editing, and generally less-demanding load, the MacBook Air (Late 2020) is a device you shouldn’t miss.

There are reasons to wait, especially if you were hoping for a more radical redesign that takes advantage of reduced power demands and no fans. Note the lack of built-in 4G or 5G as well.

If you were looking to buy a new laptop for the new year and your budget is in the Rs 1,00,000 range then look no further. Also if you were planning to buy the MacBook Air, then only buy this version as it costs the same as the Intel version. If you are someone who needs high processing power throughout the day, you will still need the MacBook Pro as any fanless model will come with some limitations.

The Apple M1 SoC might be a first-gen product for Apple's laptops and desktops but it's very evident that this is the end result of years of perfecting the A-series SoC for its phones and tablets. Intel's CPUs in recent times haven't been terribly exciting, with only modest improvements in performance year on year. In a way, this has held the MacBook Air (and the rest of Apple's portfolio) back.

The new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro come with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, that can be used to charge the devices, transfer data at high speeds and you can even use them to connect a 6K external monitor. The new devices now come with Wi-Fi 6, which is a major improvement over the older Intel-based MacBook devices. Wi-Fi 6 improves data transfer speeds, provides better performance in crowded areas like offices or malls, and it also helps to improve the battery life of the devices. Both devices also support Bluetooth 5.0 for connecting peripherals, and they also come with a 3.5mm auxiliary jack for headphones.

The M1 Air is a great laptop. Powerful performance. Long battery life. Completely silent and cool. It’s the distillation of what Apple does best — democratizing technology.

Could it be up there with the best Macs ever made? It certainly feels like an instant classic. Even my cat loves it.

Apple M1 MacBook Air & 13" MacBook Pro Review - CPU Revolution!
Source: Pocketnow English
Lisa Gade reviews both the late 2020 MacBook Air and 13” MacBook Pro with the new M1 Apple Silicon processors. These ARM-based CPUs offer tremendous performance, heat and battery life improvements, even when relying on Apple’s Rosetta 2 Intel emulation mode. Apple’s own programs are ARM-native as is the Big Sur operating system these laptops ship with. A growing list of 3rd party programs are going universal or native with M1 support. The casing and design for both machines is identical to their Intel predecessors. We compare the 2 laptops, look at compatibility issues, and compare them to Windows competitors and more powerful Mac laptops like the 16” MacBook Pro. And yes, they can run iOS and iPad apps, though that list is short and the experience is challenging without a touch screen.

For such a popular laptop -- I often call the MacBook Air the most universally useful laptop you can buy -- continuity of experience is incredibly important. That's true for Air users, who are usually looking for a sleek, reasonably priced machine that just works, as well as for those who use MacBook Pro laptops, the iMac, the Mac Mini or the Mac Pro for professional design, editing, photography or music work. Right now, only part of the Mac line is switching to Apple silicon. The rest, I'd expect to come sometime in the next year.
