Pricing information that has surfaced also puts Apple’s 12-inch MacBook at a starting price of just $799 USD. For context, the rumored starting price is $200 USD less than the current price of an entry-level MacBook Air.

Additionally, a 13-inch MacBook Pro assisted by the ARM chips with a Touch Bar and an advanced cooling fan will be priced around $1,099 USD.

If the rumors are true, Apple’s ARM silicon chips will provide cheaper devices with better performance compared to the current Intel-powered MacBooks available.
