The Best Apple Laptops to Buy this Holiday

The Best Apple Laptops to Buy this Holiday

The holiday season is almost upon us and thus, comes the best time to indulge in buying some cool tech. How about purchasing a gorgeous new MacBook this holiday? 2020 has been a nightmare of sorts, but that does not mean you cannot end it on a pleasant note.

Adding a MacBook to your arsenal can never be too much; however, you need to know which models will be best for you. You need to do your research and only then settle on one model because there are some fundamental differences between each of the models.

Having said that, let’s take a look at the different models of MacBook so that you can compare and contrast their features, and buy the best one this holiday season.

The Best MacBook

Most Mac users would agree to the fact that the fastest and ultrathin laptop, the new MacBook Air M1, is one of the best laptops. It has a very familiar design like most of the MacBooks, and once you charge the laptop, the battery runs all day long. However, speed and endurance are not the only things that one can marvel at in this laptop. The iOS and the iPadOS apps have also been brought into the model for the first time.

That being said, it is better to go for the MacBook Pro if you want better-sustained performance. On the one hand, where the MacBook Air does not have a fan, the MacBook Pro has the regular cooling system. You can run demanding programs for hours without having to worry about your laptop being overheated. The MacBook Air also has a superfast SSD, just like the MacBook Pro.

Now that we have compared and contrasted the two models of MacBook, it is time to have a closer look at some of these models that you can buy today.

MacBook Pro (Late 2020, M1)

The first model that we have for you is the MacBook Pro and there are a few surprises here since we have already discussed the model along with MacBook Air in the previous section of the article. The new M1 chip, which is the first-ever custom SoC for Mac laptops, is a winner and is something that Mac users have been waiting for, for a long time.

The new MacBook Pro is one of the fastest and most potent devices found on the market. And what serves as the most exciting part of it all is that despite having so much power in the chic device, the Pro has brilliant battery health, which lasted for almost 16 hours and 32 minutes on a battery test. If this does not pique the interest of a Mac user, nothing ever will.

MacBook Air (Late 2020, M1):

The second model that we have for you (again no surprises here) is the new MacBook Air. As we have already mentioned in the first half of the article, most Mac users would vouch for this model when it comes to Mac laptops.

This model, with its M1 chip, transforms the Air from an underpowered laptop to hands-down one of the fastest laptops found in the market. The new MacBook Air seems to last for 14 long hours and 41 minutes, which is a rarity. You might find such unrivalled performance in only the best Windows 10 laptops.

If you want to go easy on your pockets, you might want to opt for the MacBook Air instead of the Pro as it costs only $999. However, with the MacBook Air, you can rest assured that you will get only the best leaving you satisfied with the quality of the features for the price.

MacBook Pro (16-inches, 2019):

The third and the final laptop that we have for you is the MacBook Pro, 16 inches. This model now comes with an improved keyboard, potent speakers, and a gorgeous display. The model is a significantly tweaked model of the now discontinued 15-inch, making it unfathomably better.

However, the immersive and brilliant 16-inch display comes with a downside as well. It is heavier than the other models and not as portable; however, the hit to the portability might cease to be a nuisance once you lay your eyes on the gorgeous 16-inch display. One has got to pick one’s battles!

This model is one of the most powerful of Apple’s laptops, with a smart 9th Gen Core i7 and RAM up to 64 GB. It also has up to 8 TB storage and AMD Radeon Pro 5500M graphics. Now, is the package not impressive enough?

Summing It Up

The holiday season encourages people to indulge in a shopping splurge and what better way than getting your hands on the latest model of MacBook this Christmas! The three models that we have mentioned in the article are the best models on the market right about now. So, pick the model that you think suits your context the best and make the most of your holidays this year.
