New Apple MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: What’s different

Apple has introduced new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models with its M1 chipset. Here’s how the new MacBook models are compared.

Apple’s M1 processor has started with newer MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models. The new MacBook Air is said to be 3.5 times faster than the previous one while the MacBook Pro hit itself 11 times ML. Apple’s new MacBooks also offer twice as much battery life as its predecessor.

New MacBooks share more similarities than differences. Apple offers new MacBooks with the same M1 chip, the same storage options, port and display. You will have to consider the differences between the new MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro. But if you’re still confused between the two, here’s a look at the differences between the MacBook Air and the new Pro.

Same chip but tweak for less performance

The new MacBook Air and Pro is powered by the same M1 chip with 8-core CPU, GPU and 16-core Neural Engine. The basic MacBook Air model, however, has seven GPU characters and not eight. The 512GB variant of MacBook Air has an 8-core GPU. Another difference that gives the MacBook Pro a boost in performance is the presence of a fan, The Verge noted.

Battery life

Apple has increased battery life on its new MacBooks by twice as much as previous models. On MacBook Air you can get up to 15 hours of wireless web, and up to 18 hours of video playback. The MacBook Pro offers a two-hour battery life.


The MacBook Air and MacBook Pro come with the same 13.3-inch Retina display with a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels. The MacBook Pro has a light screen with 500 nits compared to 400 nits on the Air model.

Touch the bar

The Touch Bar was special to the MacBook Pro and continues to do so with new ones. You instead get the physical keys on the MacBook Air. Both MacBooks come with a Touch ID sensor, and a Microsoft backed up keyboard.

Apple also offers similar storage options for both MacBook models. The MacBook Air costs ₹ 92,900 for the 256GB model, and ₹ 1,17,900 for the 512GB model. The MacBook Pro with 256GB SSD is priced at ₹ 1,22,900, and ₹ 1,42,900 for 512GB model. Apple will begin shipping new MacBooks from November 17 onwards.
