Everything You Need to Know About Apple Laptops in Malaysia

Apple is not only known for its top-of-the-line smartphones. Before Steve Jobs released the iPhone, Apple was mostly known for its computing devices. In an attempt to transition their personal laptop devices to Intel processors, MacBook was released as a combination of the PowerBook and the iBook.

The original MacBook lineup was released in 2006 and during its run till 2015, it had four different designs. The 1st generation used a polycarbonate body and was available in black and white. 2 years later, Apple released a MacBook with aluminium unibody, complete with a new Nvidia graphic card. The 2nd, and last, generation of the original MacBook was a 13-inch laptop with a polycarbonate unibody. This MacBook lineup was targeted towards the consumer and education sectors and was considered as the “world’s best-selling premium laptops”.

MacBook Air

The current Apple laptop lineup consists of the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro. Being the cheapest Macbook device, the MacBook Air is an entry-level Apple laptop. Targeted for students and casual users, the current MacBook Air 2018 model has improved specifications compared to its previous versions. It replaces the Magsafe and USB Type-A ports for the USB C or Thunderbolt 3 ports and implements a Retina display, something that MacBook Air has been lacking since its release. It is also incorporated with the butterfly keyboard, Force Touch Trackpad, and the Touch ID sensor. The Macbook is available in Space Gray, Gold, and Silver.

MacBook Pro

Just like what its name suggests, the MacBook Pro is suitable for professionals and heavy laptop users. This MacBook has all the top-notch specifications you can get in an Apple laptop. It’s available in 13-inch and 16-inch models, with varied features like the Touch ID and the Touch Bar. The Touch Bar is an OLED display strip that replaces function keys like volume, brightness, and Mission Control buttons. Apple MacBook Pro also utilises USB C ports and the butterfly keyboard, with the exception of the 16-inch MacBook Pro that reverted to the Magic Keyboard with a scissor mechanism. The MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and Touch ID is available in Space Gray and Silver.

The display on A 16-inch MacBook Pro is the biggest Retina display ever on a MacBook device. The colours are brighter and the contrast is crisper, with true-to-life images and videos.

It has a whopping six-speaker sound system with dual force-cancelling woofers to deliver clearer and more natural sounds. To ensure that the laptop runs smoothly with all these advanced technologies, the 16-inch MacBook Pro operates on an Intel Core i9 processor with 8 cores and 16 threads of processing power. This means higher performance for a longer amount of time. It allows you to edit media, render 3D models, create code, and more, all the same time.

What’s the price of an older Apple laptop model?

For more affordable alternatives, you can opt to get an older model like the non-Retina display MacBook Air, the MacBook Pro without the Touch Bar, or the 12-inch MacBook with Retina display.

Apple official stores have discontinued all MacBook Pros without a Touch Bar. Be extra careful when purchasing a MacBook outside of the official Apple stores. Make sure you read the fine print, determine if it’s new or used, and ask for the serial number.

What’s the difference between MacBook Air and MacBook Pro?

The most discerning difference between a MacBook Air and a MacBook Pro is its design. The former is comparably lighter than the latter, with a slanted, thinner design. Next, the specifications of MacBook Air is mid-range at best, but for an Apple laptop, mid-range is more than enough for most users. This means having a processor with a lesser core, lesser memory, and so on.

Although MacBooks come with a higher price tag than a Windows laptop, the simple interface, processing power, and design are all worth it for a long-term investment. An Apple laptop can last you up to 6 years if used with good care. If you plan on getting an Apple MacBook soon, pay attention to the specs and look for a model that will fulfil all your computing needs.
