The consensus is quite clear: the new Apple MacBook Air is a game changer and one of the big reasons is the M1 chip.
The difference between the previous i3 chip and the current M1 is night and day.
Due to the new model's popularity, it's currently out of stock on Amazon and is expected to be back in stock in a few weeks.
Retailers including Costco have started heavily discounting the previous Apple MacBook Air and Pros by as much as 30%.
Despite this, consumers are still forking the extra money to buy the newer model which in addition to the fast processor, has far better battery life.
