Macworld At the heart of every Apple device is an Apple processor. Apple has been using its own chips in its iPhones and iPads for some time, while the Mac lineup has finally completed its transition away from Intel chips. Every product Apple makes is powered by a home-grown chip. What’s remarkable about Apple silicon is its performance and power efficiency. But all chips aren’t created equally. Understanding the performance differences between each chip will help with your buying decisions, especially when you’re deciding between iPhone 14 or MacBook models. Knowing how each chip performs gives you a better idea of what products to buy and whether or not it’s worth your money to step up to a higher model.…
Macworld Apple currently sells two laptop lines: the MacBook Pro (which comes in 13-inch M2, 14-inch M2 Pro/Max and 16-inch M2 Pro/Max models) and the MacBook Air (which is available in 13.3-inch M1 or 13.6-inch M2 and a, new for 2023, 15-inch M2 MacBook Air). That is a lot of Mac laptops with very different specs. In this article, we are concerned with the Mac laptops that are best suited to average use: home, student and office work. The 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with M2 Pro or M2 Mac chips are better suited to pro users and have much higher prices, so we won’t be including them here. But if you are wondering whether your needs might extend…
The Mac Studio remains the top choice for professionals who need a powerful but compact desktop computer. There is a new Mac Studio. It looks almost exactly like last year’s Mac Studio — so similar, in fact, that I have had to put Post-it notes on the two units we have in our office in order to tell them apart. It remains a remarkably compact, very Apple-looking pro-level workstation. It also remains effectively not upgradable at all, which means you need to be very careful about what you select at purchase. It has basically the same ports that the last one had: a pair of USB-C ports (Thunderbolt 4 on the Ultra) and an SDXC reader in the front, and…
Macworld At a Glance Our VerdictWe think an M2 Pro Mac mini could be the perfect Mac for many Mac users who may be considering the Mac Studio, but there is no doubt that the Mac Studio is the better machine and the cheapest way to get maximum power. When Apple introduced the Mac Studio in March 2022 we were impressed by its processing power and excellent value combined. Now the Mac Studio has been updated with Apple’s M2 Max and M2 Ultra chips it is still a superb deal for content creators of any level, but Apple’s offering has changed over the months since the original Mac Studio launched. Now the Mac Studio has competition from an M2 Pro…
Macworld Following the appearance of Geekbench 6 speed tests for the M2 Ultra Mac Studio on June 9, MacRumors has spotted the first benchmarks for the similar equipped Mac Pro. And as expected, it’s seriously quick. The “Mac14,8” (with the M2 Ultra processor and 64GB of RAM, a standard Mac Pro configuration that starts at $6,999) appeared in Geekbench’s database on June 13. It scored 2,794 in the single-core test, and a phenomenal 21,453 in multi-core. For comparison, the Mac Studio with the lower-spec M2 Max, which we just reviewed, scored 15,081 in multi-core, itself a blockbuster performance. The brand-new M2 MacBook Air, meanwhile, scored 10,030. The M2 Ultra always comes with 24 CPU cores. We can’t tell from the…
