Biggest Difference Between New MacBook Air And MacBook Pro
New MacBooks were introduced at the third Apple event recently. In this event, where had a chance to glance over MacBook Air and Pro models, Apple M1 processor also debuted in new Apple computers.
The most important point here is, from which processor these two new laptops get their power because one of the biggest differences between the two laptops, although they have the same processor, is due to the structure of the processor. And, since the MacBook Pro has a cooling system, it will be able to perform higher for longer periods of time.
ARM-based processors generally heat less because they have lower power consumption than standard Intel processors. Therefore, the problem of heating encountered in high performance jobs is encountered with less heating in ARM-based processors. However, less does not mean that there is none.
The difference between the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro surfaces here. Apple‘s new “Pro” laptop MacBook Pro has a cooling system, supported with a fan. But the MacBook Air doesn’t have any fans. Although the MacBook Air has the same processor, it will potentially be able to reach higher performance in a shorter amount of time compared to the MacBook Pro. In short, one of the biggest differences between the MacBook Air and the Pro seems to be a fan based cooling system.
In fact, it is possible to say that the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro are largely similar devices. Both devices have the same screen size and even similar screen bezels. In addition, both devices have the same processor, memory options, and ports.
Apart from the cooling system, we can say that one of the biggest differences between the MacBook Air and the Pro is the number of cores present in their GPUs. While the MacBook Pro comes with an 8-core GPU; In the entry variant of the MacBook Air, the number of GPU cores is 7. However, let’s not forget that the Pro model has a slightly larger battery, higher maximum screen brightness and a Touch Bar that greatly enhances the experience.
Apple-signed MacBooks will definitely meet their users expectations. Macs, which get faster with Apple‘s Arm-based processor M1, promise good performance.
