Testing the new MacBook Air M1 with Final Cut Pro, Logic Pro. Review video

During the weekend we connected with our friend and collaborator Albert Navarro, who has already received his MacBook Air to show us live how the computer behaves when using some of the most demanding professional applications: Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro.

Of course, it is a live connection, without cuts or elapsed times, to demonstrate the speed of the team in the real world. As a consequence, it is not an export of hour and a half projects, but rather small samples that can give professionals who work with these applications every day a reference on whether the team can solve a need they have or if it is preferable to wait. more powerful ones.

It should be remembered that the main difference between the MacBook Air M1 and the MacBook Pro M1 is that the former does not have a fan, while the latter does, which will allow it to sustain maximum performance for longer (the MacBook Air, by not having a fan, once it reaches a certain temperature, it will slow down the processes to avoid overheating that could damage the components).

In Albert Navarro’s own words, Apple has produced a “very round” product, with an impressive balance between the power it is capable of offering and the price, which makes it perfectly usable as a travel machine to solve emergencies (in its case that he is a multimedia producer in his company BCNON). For other users who require much less power or who only use image or sound editing programs occasionally, it can perfectly become your computer for daily use.

We hope the video is useful to you and if you have doubts or questions, leave them in the comments and we will answer them.
