Earlier this November, Apple had announced the release of its new M1 chip which will be available in their new MacBook Air, Mac Mini, and the MacBook Pro 13-inch model.

Apple also stated that this coming summer, the company’s product offerings will see a shift from Intel chipsets to Apple’s very own M1 chipsets with the goal of integrating all of Apple’s products under Apple Silicon.

Apple is a market leader when it comes to innovation and technological advancements, which can be seen in its latest M1 chipset.

It is currently one of the world's best-integrated chipsets and consists of an 8-core processor, an 8-core GPU, dedicated RAM, and also a 16-core neural engine.

The M1 chipset now packs more power than ever before as the newly engineered processor allows it to attain three times the performance per watt in comparison to the latest Intel processor.

Based on the A14 Bionic chip that can be found in Apple’s iPhone 12 models and the new iPad Air, it allows you to run iPhone and iPad apps natively on the new MacBook lineup.

Apple has also introduced a new OS that will allow MacBook users to take advantage of the M1 chipset's capabilities. In combination with the macOS Big Sur, you will now have access to blazing-fast performance and advanced security.

Apple has also released the largest update for Safari to enhance your experience when using the fastest browser currently available in the market.

Additionally, the event featured the introduction and integration of Rosetta 2, allowing you to seamlessly run apps that have yet to be transitioned to universal versions.

Apple has introduced its latest Magic Keyboard which will feature more shortcuts and will allow you to type in low light conditions as they are backlit.

All the new MacBook models will now feature Touch ID, allowing you to keep your information more secure and make payments in just one touch.

MacBook Air M1

The new and powerful 13-inch MacBook will feature Apple’s new M1 chipset, 8GB unified memory, Retina display with True Tone, Magic Keyboard, Touch ID, Force Touch trackpad, and two thunderbolts/ USB 4 ports.

While the base model comes with a 7-core GPU and 256GB SSD storage for USD 999, the 8-core GPU model with 512GB SSD storage is priced at USD 1,249.

MacBook Pro M1 (13-inch)

Featuring the most advanced graphics processor ever built by Apple, both models of the MacBook Pro will also feature 8-core CPUs and GPU. Unlike the MacBook Air, this model comes with a touch bar that many of you Apple enthusiasts love.

The retail price for the base model with 256GB SSD storage is USD 1,299 whereas, the 512GB SSD storage model is priced at USD 1,499.

MacBook Pro M1 (16-inch)

The 16-inch MacBook Pro models that have also been revealed will feature Intel i7 and i9 processors and starts at USD 2,399 and USD 2,799 respectively.

However, this would be recommended for those who require the most performance and do not wish to try the all-new powerful M1 chipsets introduced by Apple. It also comes with an AMD Radeon Pro graphics card.

Prices in Qatar are yet to be announced, but we will make sure that we keep you informed on the latest information available.
