apple macbook air

SPECIFICATIONS Processor Apple M1 chip Screen 13.3-inch, 400 nit, 2560x1600 LED Memory 8GB / 16GB Storage 256GB / 512GB / 1TB / 2TB Battery Up to 18 hours Connectivity 2x Thunderbolt 3, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0 OS macOS 11 Dimensions 304.1.212.4x4.1–16.1mm Weight 1.29kg From £999 apple.com This is the start of something huge for Apple: computers made using its own chips. Ever since the iPad debuted the first Apple-made chip back in 2010, we had to wonder whether this would be the long-term plan. The M1 chip makes that a reality, and it turns out to be a big leap forward for laptops. If you want a computer than can do standard tasks without breaking a sweat, the MacBook Air is pretty much unmatched. Its Geekbench 5 scores of 1732 in single-core and 7556…

ideal laptops for every task

BEST FOR ON THE GO MacBook Air Apple’s brand new MacBook Air for late 2020 has instantly up-ended the laptop market, alongside the 13-inch MacBook Pro, which got a similar refresh at the same time. They’re the first two MacBooks to come with Apple’s own M1 chipset design, which potentially offers huge gains in terms of both the performance and the battery life you can expect. While these laptops have only been on the market for a couple of weeks at the time of writing, it looks as though that potential is going to be met – and as applications are updated to take advantage of the redesigned silicon, the speed gains should be even greater. This MacBook Air is essentially a major step forward in terms of components and architecture, for…

razer hammerhead true wireless pro

Non-headphone brands releasing their own take on true wireless buds has become so commonplace these days that you need to be doing something truly remarkable to stand out. So what has elite gaming brand Razer done with its new Hammerhead True Wireless Pro to so pique our curiosity? Is it its intuitive touch controls and remappable touch gestures? Nope. Its snazzy gamer-baiting design? Hah, not quite. Advanced hybrid active noise cancellation, which packs two external and two internal mics to serve up first-class sound nullification? Close but no cigar. Even the impressive total 20-hour battery life offered with its case wasn’t what finally clinched it for us. No, what won us over was its THX-certified 20Hz – 20kHz frequency response, offering truly cinematic sound whether you’re gaming or streaming. Coupled…

huawei watch fit

£89.99 consumer.huawei.com When Huawei first unveiled this portrait-shaped smartwatch, which looks like a stretched out Apple Watch, it was met with some scepticism. However, once it’s on the wrist any doubt fades away: it boasts the features of a fully fledged smartwatch but without the added bulk and – crucially – the elevated price. The Watch Fit is a super handsome smartwatch that feels perfectly comfortable for long periods. Measuring just 10.7mm thick, and with a weight of 21g, it’s much slimmer and lighter than it appears, so we were surprised by how sleek it feels. It boasts a vibrant and clean-looking 1.64-inch AMOLED display sporting an impressive 280 x 456 resolution. Brightness levels are also decent enough that the display can be seen clearly even in sunlight. The only issue we had…
