1 – Apple MacBook Air M1

The MacBook Air is the cheapest MacBook you can buy that features M1 silicon. Soon, it’ll be the cheapest MacBook you can buy with an M2 chip, but we’re not there yet. This is fine, for now. And that’s because Apple’s M1 Airs are faster than ever, verging on Pro-level speed at a portion of the price. It’s not just speed, though. The particular battery is better than ever, it’s as silent as a very silent thing, and overall performance is almost impossible to beat.  

Yes, there are a few downsides. It’s not going to work for gaming. It’s not as powerful as a Pro. But gaming is overrated and this thing does more or less what Intel-powered Pros were capable of, making it one heck of a good all-rounder. Better yet, it’s an all-rounder that will last the full day away from a power socket. Since South Africa is living in interesting (and dark) times at the particular moment, that’s one heck of a selling point. Our major gripe? The webcam’s really not up to snuff. Eh.
