Following the “One More Thing” hardware event, Apple has announced its new line of Arm-based Macs powered by Apple’s own processors, replacing Intel, which has been used in Mac laptops and desktops since 2005. Currently, the first three Apple computers to have Apple’s custom M1 chip are the MacBook Air, the 13-inch MacBook Pro, and the Mac mini.

The new Arm-based Macs are available to order now, and Apple says the computers will ship starting November 17th. But if you are ready to preorder one of the new models now, we have compiled a list of retailers currently offering the new computers.

WHERE TO BUY THE NEW MACBOOK AIR
Currently, you can buy the new MacBook Air directly from Apple’s website. You can get the Air model with an M1 chip, an eight-core processor and seven-core GPU, and 256GB of storage for $999. For $1,249, you can get a model powered by an M1 chip with an eight-core processor and eight-core GPU, plus 512GB of storage.
