M1 MacBook Pro and Air review: Apple delivers

17.11.2020

Apple has updated three Mac with its own M1 processors: the Macbook Air, the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro, and the Mac mini. Will Intel-based apps run? Will they be fast? Will they live up to Apple's battery life claims? Nilay Patel and Dieter Bohn have a thousand questions, and almost all of them have been answered.

  • One limitation of the new M1 MacBooks is support of only one external monitor. I have found a clever solution. I have an Apple TV connected to my 4K TV, and the prescribed ONE external monitor, an Asus 1920x1080 connected to my new M1 MacBook Air via the HDMI port on my Anker 7-in-2 dock. In the Screen Mirroring option on Control Panel, I selected the Apple TV and checked the option Use as Separate Display. That's it. I had 3 separate displays, one internal and two external, that I could arrange in Display Preferences, and everything worked great. I had everything I needed in Display Preferences. I could scale the 4K display as I wished, all the way up to literally 4K and anything in between. There was nothing to tell me I did not have two external monitors connected. In theory, all you need is an AirPlay-enabled device to connect to the second external monitor. I have ordered an inexpensive one from Amazon to try this with the two actual monitors on my Mac Mini desk. Don't see any reason it won't work, if the little $29 gizmo is really AirPlay compatible. If not, eBay has 3rd gen Apple TV for around $60. I am fairly sure this method will work just as well on the M1 MB Pro.

  • I am still not sure if apple is making the two tb3 ports share the same 40Mbs bandwidth or if they are truly fully independent with 40Mbs each. Please test that. Thanks Also can you recommend external ssds since these memory limited internally un upgradeable machines use the fast ssd as a memory swap file, this makes "the external ssd the single most important addidtion you can make to your m1 mac" performance wide, especially since GPUS are not currently supported.

  • "Just add the touch screen. It'll be fine". As nice as these laptops are, and they're VERY nice, this one comment by Nilay exemplifies why I'm going to wait and see what Apple does. I just purchased a 13" Lenovo Yoga 6 2-in-1 for $595. The performance and battery life, while obviously not as good as the Air's, are just fine in normal use. That, combined with touch, the convertible form factor, and $400 in savings, make the Air a tough sell for me. Your mileage, of course, may vary!

    David RossDavid Ross5 päivää sitten
    • @Harry One Yes it is--the non-touch, non-convertible, $400 more expensive level. If you don't care about those things, the Air is undoubtedly a very good computer. If you do, as I do, The Yoga 6 makes sense.

I've been waiting for stupid things like the butterfly keyboard to be worked out. This seems like this is a good time to upgrade to, potentially, the M1 Air. I do have a question.. on my current Macbook I have the 2016 Adobe Design Suit .. which I think was the last disk collection they had before switching to Adobe Cloud. I don't have the funds to constantly pay for Adobe Cloud, so I want to carry over the old suit .. do you think they'll run on the M1?
