As I said a few days ago, Apple will have to bet on MacBooks based on ARM SoCs fast enough, but also cheap enough to convince users to make the leap.

And apparently he was right! Apparently, Apple will try to revive the range of 12 ”MacBooks, by introducing very interesting specifications where we can include the SoC A14X Bionic, that is, the same processor that should give life to the new range of iPads of the company.

MacBook ARM: 20 hours of battery life, 16GB of RAM, SoC A14X… At 799 $!

So, as you may know, it wasn’t that long ago that Apple decided to abandon Intel to bet on its own TSMC designs and production. But as time is money, the North American giant is already preparing to launch the first ARM machine in the form of a new 12 ”MacBook! Which in turn should reach the market with 8GB or 16GB of RAM, 256GB / 512GB or 1TB of storage, as well as a battery life that should run for 15h ~ 20h, all at an extremely appealing price.

However, everything indicates that this new laptop from Apple will use the company’s famous and problematic ‘butterfly’ keyboard.

Technical specifications:

  • A14X Bionic
  • RAM: 8GB, 16GB
  • SSD: 256GB, 512GB, 1TB
  • Screen: 12 ”Retina
  • Battery: 15hr ~ 20hr battery life
  • 1x USB-C
  • Weight: <1KG
  • Price: ~ 799 $

Why bet on the 12 ”MacBook range and not the ‘Pro’ range?

Very briefly, Apple wants to reuse the design of this machine, since its SoC A14X should have a negligible TDP thanks to the use of the TSMC’s 5nm production process. Therefore, the chassis and cooling solution of the ‘old’ laptop should be more than enough to cool the new ARM processor. (Something that obviously didn’t happen with Intel solutions.)

In addition, if Apple can prove that it can launch a small machine with a lot of power to offer, it will obviously get fans thinking about what might come to market in the future.

Since I was very young I became interested in computers and technology in general, I had my first PC at 10 and at 15 I built my first tower, since then I never stopped. Whatever technology is, I’m in the front row to find out more.
