About this Deal
Apple’s move to ARM is a radical move for the Mac platform, but the very nature of the move will be enough for many to consider alternatives to the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. Why?
Apple is at the beginning of a two-year transition from Intel-based processors in its Mac family of computers to ARM-based processors of its own design. With the new MacOS on ARM laptops expected to go on sale by the end of the year, Apple’s focus will not only be on the new hardware, but also ensuring that macOS on ARM delvers a great experience and has compatibility with the countless legacy apps needed by users.
What does that mean for the current MacBook Pro and MacBook Air laptops?? Apple has quietly stressed that is not going to suddenly drop support for the Intel-powered machines, including the MacBook Air, but there are questions of just how strong that support will be. Intel and ARM are different beasts, and macOS will move more towards the advantages offered by ARM, The Intel machines will be maintained, but will they thrive?
