With the arrival of Macs with Apple‘s own processors last year, the number of people interested in getting a MacBook multiplied. And it is normal that at this time you are considering the purchase of one of them, although it might not be the best time to do it. If you want to know the reason why we do not recommend it, keep reading because we will tell you what arguments there are for not buying them now.
The new MacBook Pros are on the prowl
Mark Gurman is one of the main gurus in the Apple world, since he has reliable sources close to the company or within it (it has not been disclosed) and thanks to this he can advance some news of the company. This analyst is the one who has confirmed on several occasions, the last one last week, that this October new Macs will be presented . He is not the only one to say so and there is also information that points to the type of computers that will be.
In addition to a possible hybrid between Mac mini and Mac Pro, the apple company is expected to launch two new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros . In fact, a good part of its features were leaked in the summer due to a hack suffered by one of the company’s providers. It is said that these will bring an M1X processor that would improve the already known M1, in addition to incorporating a redesign that would be especially striking in the small model, which would serve to go from the current 13.3 inches to 14.
A more used front and the return of ports such as HDMI, card reader or MagSafe are possible novelties in the aesthetic field. The Touch Bar would also be eliminated after 5 years in which it finally feels that they have not fulfilled the intended purpose. And although they are expected to be more expensive than the current ones , this does not detract from the fact that we believe that it is now a bad idea to buy a MacBook.
Why do we think you should wait
There are 2 arguments in favor of waiting for your arrival. The first of them is that these new MacBook Pro convince you more than the current ones and in that case it compensates you to wait for them, instead of buying an M1 and regretting the arrival of these. The second argument is that you may not be convinced by these new ones or that their price is too high for your budget, but even then it pays to wait because the current M1s would drop in price , either at Apple or in other stores.
Obviously we do not know your circumstance and if you need to buy it now for urgent reasons, we cannot tell you that you are not going to enjoy one of the current ones. What’s more, you will have a great team for many years and although the new ones convince you more, it is understandable that you need it now. Although we insist that if you can wait, wait. A priori we should be about to know the date of that possible presentation event.
A MacBook Air could be a good idea
If we continue to be guided by rumors and, except for capital surprise, there will be no MacBook Air in 2021. If it is this range that you like and not the ‘Pro’, we see less inconvenience in getting one of the current ones. It is true that it is expected that in 2022 they will hit a good change on an aesthetic level and also improve performance with a new processor, but for this, there is already more time than for the ‘Pro’.
