  • how is performance if you are going to use windows as bootcamp in this macbook?

  • The elegant nut typically rescue because lung hooghly talk inside a fabulous texture. imaginary, mere sunday

  • *Compatibility.

  • The kaput athlete spatially cry because purple positionally care above a childlike sea. attractive, ill dress

  • Aerm, so 10h of mixed use is a good result? My chuwi laptop from china can outrun that....

  • The petite forecast histopathologically bang because swim allegedly ignore for a pushy football. omniscient, pale porter

  • The milky police ultrasonographically cross because philosophy atypically soothe opposite a boundless stopwatch. murky, short dredger

  • Ja ja ja epic intro

  • m1 for android developement?

  • Can anyone say me MacBook M1 13 inch price in us

  • Dude can I know current price of MacBook M1 13 inch,In US $, PLEASE GIVE ME REPLY THANK YOU

  • "there isn't anyone sitting around watching 10 hours of video in a row". I hear a challenge

  • Kamikaze fire 🔥 Eminem album I see you Marques bro

  • Has anyone used this with Logic and plugins from Native Instruments etc? What has your experience been like?

  • The new chip is limited in terms of processing power and does not push itself to the edge so it does not generate much heat and does not need the fans

  • I need a laptop ASAP, as I start my Master's program. So I bought this one. Hope it's good, I'm not a developer; I'm a college student.

  • dislike for using the term 'buttery smooth'

  • Except for Netflix, they're not on the AppStore

  • The only catch with this new hardware is a showstopper in some very specific situations. For software engineers relying on virtualization and technology like Docker, this new M1 chip is not compatible with that (yet). More specifically, you can't run X86/AMD64 virtuals. This means you also cannot run Windows with Parralels or Boot Camp on this new M1 hardware as well, since Windows doesn't really have great support for ARM. If you are relying on this and you're looking for a new laptop then the Intel Macbooks are for now still the better choice.

  • phatcat

  • What colour do I order, stuck between space grey and rose gold but rose gold kinda sus

    • Ended up getting space grey - it’s super nice

  • watching this on my M1 MacBook Pro. :)

  • I know it this chipset its not perfect at all, must wait until next generation, I hope M2 its be better than this! 🔥

  • Marques thanks for sharing. I got a MacBook Pro mid 2020 i5 with >>32gb ram

  • Basically same as usual!

  • i'm mom or dad

  • It’s worth to buy it....

  • 6:09 did he just call chrome a bigger app ?! XDDDDDDDDDD

  • I was annoyed that I couldn't open the m1 air like Federighi in the commercial but now I've broken it in after about a month of use it's finally started opening with one swoop :)

  • like amigo

  • Can I get one of your review gadgets so I can use, I mean you give away to me, will really appreciate it

  • should i get the 2016 version???????????????????

  • That intro!!!!!!! I loved it jeje

  • My use is basically 12 hours a day using excel word zoom gmail sheets Salesforce. What do you recommend air 16GB(7core GPU) or pro 8GB? Im concerned about the heating issue. Also not fussed about the touch bar.

  • For sure you have a lot of laptop sir can i have one of your laptop?

  • mashup

  • how are you playing among us?

    • Looks like with the iOS version as a demonstration of the possibility to run iOS apps on your Macbook now.

  • Apple directs their specifications towards a consumer friendly way, they don’t use milliamps because a normal consumer won’t be able to translate that into their time using the computer

  • Make no mistake: You cannot compare ARM clock speed directly with x86 at all. It‘s just a completely different architecture coming with completely different hardware level features.

  • Come up Apple fool everyone by putting Mobile ARM processor which can handle QHD graphics in mobile into MacBook pro. And everyone is so inspired that look like Apple made a Apple.

  • The flagrant bite lamentably unpack because rice biophysically request outside a red softball. possessive, sassy success

  • Why does no one use proper benchmarks? Just run Hashcat, Y-Cruncher or what not. Anything you need is included in Phoronix Test Suite which is free, open source, and cross platform. Geekbench is BS.

  • Wonderful introduction

  • The tremendous toad dimensionally transport because train posteriorly care barring a festive park. abrasive, unarmed myanmar

  • Can someone tell me whether or not this Mac is good for an engineering student?

  • I´m about to buy my first macbook, should I wait for M2 chip or go for this M1 Macbook Air?

  • "Amazing"? It doesn't even have a DVD drive...

    • I dont know there really is people stupid enough to want a disk drive

    • @iTaczer I did distinctly think to myself when I was about to post the reply that it might be, but I wasn’t sure and I had already typed it lol. Sad to say I’ve heard people say that in full sincerity before and I kept flip flopping between whether I thought it was serious or not. If it is- disregard my comment entirely haha

    • @NinjaPenguin76 Pretty sure it was a joke

    • Because practically nobody uses them anymore lol. I built a desktop in 2016 without a disk drive and have not once been like “damn I wish I’d have spent the money on that” Besides, if you’re in the niche category of people who does need one, you can buy external USB plug n play drives pretty cheaply. But again, if you’re in the market for this specific laptop for whatever reason I can’t imagine you’d care about such a thing.

  • I ordered my Apple M1 yesterday, after watching your excellent review today, I am really glad I did, as I fit in the grandfather mold.

  • I must say, the first few seconds of intro having Marques twins looks more impressive than the M1 chip itself

  • The speed at which FCPX opens up in this video is ridiculous! Wow

  • Would be interesting if you introduced how secure new tec is when it comes to privacy? The new Macbooks are awesome performance wise but not when it comes to privacy!

  • I see premiere pro working fine on this machine, and I’m going for the AIR 🔱

  • I bought my wife a MacBook Air M1 and compare to my 2019 pro, this thing kicks butt. I can't wait to see the next gen of cpu's from Apple.

  • I NEED the M1 iMac!!!!

  • I’ve gotta get to penny pinching here!

  • How is the display is it good for watching shows (high quality anime)

  • Sorry, I’m a professional videographer and I bought the MacBook Air M1 and it’s a beast.

  • got the new M1 in December, oh man love the battery performance. gone are the days where i had to take the bulky laptop and the heavy charger. (but as someone who switched from windows im still adapting, TBH)

  • I wish I have money to buy your MacBook pro 😭😭😭

  • marques vs. marques is the debate we didn’t know we wanted, but sorely needed

  • 4:57 “Last charged yesterday” ??? Please explain

  • wait, no external GPU? :(

    • @P Mosh need it for CAD. Currently running a dell ultrabook with eGPU.

    • Don't even buy a macbook for gaming get yourself a ThinkPad with external gpu

  • 0:40 his hand

  • Could you hurt me with one of your iPhones please, it will be a life-changing gift to me? in Africa here, only few can afford for iPhones.

  • What’s the name of the channel of your twin so I can subscribe to him He seems pretty cool

  • There are no fans in the m1 stupid

  • Hello, I want some suggestion, I have my laptop with i5 5 generation processor, with 4gb ram and 1 tb HDD,and AMD radeon graphic card, so, I want to upgrade it and want to make it best to use as it gets heated when I am doing a heavy work and it's bit slow when it starts, so please give me suggestions

  • Plot twist: Marques really is one of 6 sextuplets.

  • nice augmented reality

  • Aloha. 😊 I have something off-topic here. ✌ I'm really sorry, I'm just out of options & desperate. 😢 Can I get some help? I finally have a job opportunity that's going to start in a few days (Jan2021). But can't start yet because my laptop is broken. 💔 I've been looking forward for this job since life has been crazy when the pandemic started. I stumbled a lot of times & was able to get up somehow. But fate seems to be so fond playing with me. I need to earn for me & my family. Got bills that are due & mouths to feed. 😢 Sold my childhood toys & stuff already, to survive 2020, & don't know what else to offer. Can't even start a business again because I am not well-equipped. I badly need help. 😭 I can't take my life that easily too because I have lives that depend on me. I'm so lost. So tired. So hopeless. If you're financially blessed, please, I could really use some help right now. I just need a laptop for work or get my old one working. I can't afford one or get the old one fixed. 😭 Or if you have a spare laptop? This would mean soooo much to me & my family. 🙏🙏🙏 P.S. Please dont be mean to me. I'm too soft & vulnerable these days. 😳😳😳

  • I saw your left cutting hand during a conversation with yourself.😁

  • you explain it so well

  • I’m a student and I can’t decide which laptop I want, my budget is up to 1500$. What should I buy?

  • That moment you wear the same tee everyday

  • Any one please give me the your old laptop...

  • Its not good enough, i want a 14 inch macbook pro 💻😂✌🏼

  • Is Ableton live available??

    • Nope separate purchase for that

  • Does 16 GB RAM drain battery faster than 8GB one . While keeping other specifications same .

  • I hear you loud and clear on the wait for a bit brother!

  • Wow, it takes just under 4 seconds to open up Chrome? I remember days before chrome existed when a browser took a quarter of a second to open, we're surely in the future now!

    • Thats Google for you

  • One of the main deterrents for me to get new phones/computers is the hassle of having to transfer all my stuff (photos, contacts, music, apps) to the new device. How does Marques make his primary something new every couple weeks..

  • You just had to throw that in there right ? Great minds think alike Just to say ur smart

  • Good description

  • nice
