Difference Between MacBook Air And MacBook Pro

The new MacBooks are more similarities than differences. The company offers the same chipset in both Mac, same storage options, port, and display. People have to look closely to find a difference between them.

In Performance:

The new MacBooks are powered by the same M1 chip with an 8-core CPU, GPU, and 16-core Neural Engine. But the base model of Mac Air has only seven core, not eight. The biggest difference in both models is a “Fan”. The Mac Pro is more smooth and performance boost due to its “Fan” because Mac Air has not any Fan like Mac Pro. In a simple way technology use in Fan is different and cooling fast so due to low-temperature MacBook Pro performs more efficiently and fast.

Battery life:

The company has increased the battery life on its MacBooks by double than previous models. The Mac Air offers 15 hours of wireless web and up to 18 hours of video playback. The Mac Pro offers 2 hours more battery life.
