It promises huge leaps in performance and vastly better battery life compared to the older Intel-based MacBook Air. I’ve been using the new M1-powered MacBook Air as my work machine for about a week, and here’s what I think of it.

The new Apple MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini with the Apple M1 SoC have kickstarted the company’s multi-year transition from Intel CPUs to its own in-house silicon. Apple’s previous pivotal computing shift came about 15 years ago when it announced its transition from the PowerPC
architecture to Intel CPUs, and now it’s doing it again.
