For a first-gen Apple product, the new MacBooks featuring the company’s own custom chipset is reviewing surprisingly well, even from our friends at Gizmodo. And, like clockwork, the M1-equipped MacBook Pro is discounted $60 at both Amazon and B&H Photo at least if you’re cool with the entry-level Space Gray build with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD.
Here’s what Gizmodo’s Joanna Nelius had to say in her review of the powerful new MacBook Pro:
I do all my work and play on PC, but Apple’s M1 processor has me wondering if I really need a Windows PC for my next laptop. This is the first time in all my years of computing—ever since my dad sat me in front of a keyboard as a toddler—that I’ve ever considered getting a Mac.
