iStore releases SA pricing for the new Apple MacBook Air, Pro and Mac Mini

iStore South Africa has announced that there will be local availability for its  Apple MacBook Pro, MacBook Air and Mac Mini.

iStore has since released pricing for the new hardware as part of a pre-order campaign.

The new Apple devices all use the Apple M1 chipset, which Apple said delivers significant performance and power efficiency improvements over the previous generation.

The 13-inch Apple MacBook Air delivers up to five times the graphics performance of the previous generation has no built-in fan, and its battery life has been vastly improved – offering up to 18 hours of video playback on a single charge.

It also sports an improved 13.3-inch Retina display and greatly enhanced camera quality.

The new 13-inch MacBook Pro offers 2.8x more performance than the previous generation thanks to its Apple M1 chip and includes an integrated 8-core GPU.

Apple lauded the capabilities of the MacBook Pro’s battery, which offers the longest battery life ever in a Macbook Pro.

This comprises 17 hours of wireless web usage or 20 hours of video playback – which is double that of the previous-generation device.

The new MacBook Pro also comes with a studio-quality three-microphone array, as well as an improved webcam – which Apple said will result in superior video calling.

The new Mac Mini features an 8-core CPU and 8-core GPU, comes with three times faster processing and six times increased graphics performance, as well as 15-times faster machine learning (ML) capabilities.

The Mac Mini supports output to up to two displays and has upgraded port availability with two Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports, two USB-A, an HDMI 2.0, Ethernet port, and 3.5mm headphone jack now included.
