The Wall Street Journal has made a complete analysis of the MacBook Pro and the MacBook Air with M1 processor, these are some of their impressions.

What has impressed them the most is the low temperature that reach the new MacBook.

Fifty navigation tabs? The MacBook Air with M1 never exceeded 27 degrees Celsius. The Air with Intel technology? Thirty-five tabs caused his fans to rev up, and it hit 34 degrees.


It looks like the new MacBook Air has seemed very fast, with speeds similar to those found in an iPad Pro.

My first thought while using the M1-chip MacBook Air was that it felt like an iPad Pro. Running apps created natively for the M1, like Safari and GarageBand, feels as fast as launching an iPad app. Safari offers the best web browsing experience I’ve ever had on a computer.
