Update – Rumored to start at $799 USD.
The leak notes the debut of a 12-inch MacBook with a 5nm 12-core CPU powered by Apple Silicon at a special event October 27, just weeks after the official unveiling of the iPhone 12.
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.
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.
