The introduction of Apple’s M1 means that the new computer will be much faster without adding any extra thermal or power requirements. The new 13 inch MacBook Pro computer has the longest battery life ever in a Mac. With up to 20 hours of video playback and 17 hours of wireless web browsing, the latest MacBook pro has twice the battery life of its predecessors. Developers will also be able to compile up to four times as much code. Similar to the previous 13 inch versions, the new MacBook Pro is costing the same price of $1,099.
