Yesterday I wrote about Apple is ramping up production of the next 15-inch MacBook Air, and yes, many are delighted. It’s not just because the new Air will feature a roomier 15-inch screen and the legendary Air battery life. Excitement is building because rumors suggest the 15-inch Air will be faster and more powerful.
Rumors have been circulating since the leaks were revealed Apple purchased the entire initial series of 3nm chips from TSMC, and many are now speculating that the next-generation MacBook Air will come packed with these powerful and efficient chips. With WWDC 2023 In just two months, you might want to hold off on buying that new MacBook Pro, because the 15-inch Air could give you pro-level performance at a much lower price.
Why you might want to wait
Although there are many rumors that Apple is cornering the 3nm chip market and quickly building a system that will feature the most efficient and powerful chipset, recent words should excite those in need of a new laptop even more. .
According to our friends at Digital trendsseveral recent rumors and a story in China time suggest that the chipsets will feature TSMC’s latest 3nm N3E node, which is said to be even more powerful than the 3nm N3 node chips first produced. The 3nm N3 node chips can be used in Apple’s iPhone Bionic 17 chips, and the more powerful N3E will be used exclusively in MacBooks with the M3 chipset.
We’re just guessing here, because we never know exactly what Apple has planned. The walls of Cupertino Castle remain mostly impenetrable, with most leaks coming from vendors rather than internal leaks. However, if the rumors are true, buying a MacBook Pro now seems like a bad idea with a more powerful chipset on the horizon.
With WWDC coming up on June 5th and Apple fanatics’ fingers crossed for the launch of Apple’s AR/VR ski goggles, I think the bigger story would be the launch of a much more powerful MacBook Air and efficient that will rival the company’s MacBook Pro and blow away the Windows competition.
Save some money, wait until June and buy the new MacBook Air M3 powered by 3nm chipset. That would be the smartest move, especially since at this point Apple is only competing with itself since I can think of at least five reasons MacBooks are better than Windows laptops.
