Apple’s latest MacBook Pro complete with Apple’s M1 chip is available to purchase right now with a small-but-appreciated $50 discount applied. The ongoing deal brings the price of the purchase down to just $1,249 for this brand new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.

First and foremost, the main selling point of this machine is the fact that it is one of the first of the few to move across to using the Apple-designed M1 chip. There has been a lot of online chat about Apple’s move from Intel to its own silicone in new Macs but with all of that aside, the Cupertino-based company is promising that the move will bring a giant leap in CPU, GPU, and machine learning performance.

The 8-core CPU within the MacBook Pro delivers performance up to 3.5x faster than previous models and promises to “tackle projects faster than ever.” The GPU is also up to 5x faster and makes using graphics-intensive apps and games a breeze on this machine.

The machine comes with a 16-core Neural Engine for advanced machine learning and 8GB of unified memory, which means that every task that you need to undertake should be fast and fluid. It also benefits from a – SSD with 256GB of storage. Everything else on the machine is fast and zippy, so it stands to reason that the SSD should be as well. And, of course, you also benefit from the latest improvements from a software perspective with the recent release of macOS Big Sur.
