Which MacBook to buy
Apple introduced the first Apple Silicon Macs in November 2020 at an event. The MacBook Air with M1 processor is powerful enough to outperform Intel based MacBook Airs and it doesn't have a fan.
Since the MacBook doesn't have a fan, the MacBook will throttle speed down when the Apple Silicon hits a certain load. That means the 13-inch MacBook Pro performs under certain conditions due to better cooling.
The MacBook Air has two Thunderbolt 3 ports, but can only connect to a single external monitor. The monitor can be 6K at 60Hz, but reducing the specs will not enable adding additional monitors like with Intel-based Macs.
If users are looking to use two custom monitors and still want to use Apple Silicon, users can purchase the Mac mini.
The M1 processor also does not allow external GPUs to be connected. Some users may want to buy an Intel Mac now in order to have one of the last Macs with Intel while Apple works out the limitations of the custom processors.
