- They need software offered by MacOS.
In a word, you can choose between them according to your needs.
Is MacBook Pro 13 with Apple M1 chip worth buying? Apple M1 chip is an ARM-based CPU and it has powerful performance. The reason why this model is cheaper is that most programs don't support the ARM architecture. If Apple has built good ARM software environment, it may raise the price of this model.
