Apple abandoned the use of Intel processors in its laptops since the beginning of last June, and the era of complete transition to Apple processors began with the launch of the new Mac Pro, especially that many observers did not expect to provide the Mac Pro with advanced technologies.

Apple recently launched two new models within the category of regular models and not from the category of high-performance devices, namely the MacBook Air 2023 model, which is the first laptop from Apple with a 15-inch screen, designed for beginners; and the MAC Studio desktop computer, known for its high-quality technical equipment, is often considered a luxury category device.

What is the New MacBook Air 15-inch?

Previously, the user, looking for a laptop with a large screen, had to buy a MacBook Pro, which is available at a high cost, but now he can count on the new model MacBook Air 15-inch, and at a much lower cost than the MacBook Pro.

Thanks to the superior performance of the graphics card, the advantages of the MAC Studio computer are not limited to performing work tasks smoothly, but it can also be used to run games, and although Mac devices are rarely used to run video games, the device that has been tested can compete with traditional desktop computers dedicated to gaming, and this can be seen when playing the game Shadow of the Tomb Raider The MAC Studio computer equipped with the processor M2 Max with a resolution of 1080 pixels and an image activation rate of 102 Hz.
