New features

A unique aspect of the MacBook Pro model is that if you consider the “Pro” part of the name : the Touch Bar. is a long, thin, touch-enabled OLED screen that comes mounted forward of the MacBook Pro’s keyboard. its use is for specific apps like the Adobe Creative Suite and Apple’s final cut pro X, which let you use the Touch Bar to go through a video timeline, switch tool selections, and much more. More features using the touch bar will likely be implemented later on. This feature is exclusive to the MacBook pro and is not present on the MacBook Air.

Who is it targeted to?

Students, editors, executives, managers, professionals are the primary target market of Apple Inc. Also including people who need to do work on long journeys. On the bus, train, car or plane. Or even if your travelling to different places while still needing to do work. The MacBook allows easy access anywhere and at any time including its long lasting battery life to get you through the whole day charger free. Would not recommend for people who are based in 1 location for the majority of their time working. As a normal computer is better fitted for that purpose.

The MacBook Air definitely gives the Pro a run for its money quite literally, being significantly cheaper than the Pro. (Price around £1000). What is the difference between the two thought? and which should you buy?

Performance

With a battery life of around 8 hours, the Air is slightly lower than the pro (of 22 hours). Though the storage and ram are the same respectively, at 8 GB RAM and 256 GB SSD. Note however the air comes with a Fanless design which could affect the performance of the laptop after long succession of use. The plus side to this is that it is completely silent when in use. 13.3 inch screen, 3.2 GHz processing speed and 60 Hz refresh rate. Display resolution of 2560 by 1600 and graphic processor (apple M1). So what is the difference between the Air an Pro?

Distinct differences

The MacBook Air is only a dual core process compare to its big brother Pro of quad core. This affects the performance speed and even lifetime of this laptop if used for many years. Battery life and design is slightly different across the two being the shape and thickness. The pro is also built to last better if dropped or damaged. The Air does not come with a touch bar unlike the Pro. There is a difference in price of around £200.
