Apple announced three new Mac models today, the first Macs to use Apple’s on CPU chips. This new M1 chip is similar to the chips in the iPad and iPhone. Each has 8 cores, 7 or 8 graphics cores, 16 neural network cores and a secure enclave.
The three new models are at the same basic prices as the three Intel-based models they replaced. Apple promises better performance on each, and dramatically better battery life with the MacBook models. You can order them now, with delivery dates starting next week.
