Will Apple Silicon Lead to Affordable MacBooks in India?


This episode of Orbital specializes in the latest Apple event, where the company unveiled the first Macs to make the switch from Intel processors to Apple’s M1 SoC. Apple fanatic and friend of the podcast Preshit Deorukhkar joins host Pranay Parab to talk about this launch and what it means for India. We begin this episode by talking approximately the M1 chip and what this transition could intent for Apple, and those that use Macs. Next, we talk approximately macOS Big Sur, which has numerous interesting new features. We then begin talking approximately the newest Macs and which of these products we need to buy.

Preshit talks approximately the MacBook Air with the M1 chip, and why it makes sense for him, whereas Pranay discusses the pricing of Mac mini’s upgrades. This is where we mention why the Mac mini’s base variant generally is a great choice for some people, and remark on the pricing of upgrading RAM and storage on Macs in India. Pranay starts configuring the Mac mini and shares his thoughts on the last price of the machine he wants, and if he is going to shop for it. Next, we talk approximately the MacBook Pro with the M1 chip, and why it is best to wait and watch what happens to other MacBook Pro models. The most prominent of these is the 16-inch device, which has not yet made the transition from Intel to Apple chips. 

After all we talk approximately what we expect to see from Apple in the next year or so, which includes AirPods Studio, iMac Pro, Mac Pro, and a lot more.
