The incredible M1 chip inside the new MacBook Air promises up to 3.5x faster performance and up to 5x faster graphics. It’s not only the fastest MacBook Air ever, but also one of the fastest notebooks today, period.

What makes that even more incredible is that unlike most laptops, the M1 MacBook Air achieves all this without active cooling. It has no fan, which means it stays silent at all times — no matter how hard you push it.
