Apple’s 2023 Mac Studio, Mac Pro and 15-inch MacBook Air are now reaching customers. Announced at WWDC23 last week, the new Macs went up for preorder soon after.

Customers who placed their orders early have already started receiving Apple’s latest Macs. If you didn’t place your order already, you can currently grab one with a $50 discount!

Your 2023 Mac Studio and Mac Pro preorder should arrive today

You can configure the Mac Studio with an M2 Max or M2 Ultra chip, up to 8TB of storage and 192GB of system memory. It offers an array of ports but does not provide any user upgradability. This will limit you to the RAM and storage you configure the machine with at the time of purchase.

As our 2023 Mac Studio review roundup highlights, the machine packs an eye-watering amount of power.

As for the 2023 Mac Pro, it is the last Mac in Apple’s lineup to transition to its in-house chip. The new $6,999 Mac Pro is 2-3x faster than the high-end Intel Mac Pro — at half the cost. This is possible thanks to the M2 Ultra chip. And despite packing so much power, Apple’s silicon is more efficient than Intel’s offering.

On the new Mac Pro, you get six PCI Express 4 slots for additional expansion, including storage, SDI cards and more. It is the first Apple silicon Mac to feature PCIe expansion.

Both machines are designed to handle complex workflows and are meant for professionals.

15-inch MacBook Air also start reaching customers

Apple’s biggest Air yet, the 15-inch MacBook Air is also making its way into the hands of customers across the globe. The newest Air is identical to its smaller 13-inch sibling except for the bigger display, dimensions, and a better speaker system. You can go through our 15-inch vs. 13-inch MacBook Air comparison to decide which machine is right for you.

At $1,299, the 15-inch MacBook Air is a no-brainer, with Apple rightfully calling it the “world’s best 15-inch laptop.” The initial reviews of the machine are also overwhelmingly positive.

If you did not preorder the new Mac Studio, Mac Pro, or 15-inch MacBook Air, you can purchase it from your nearest Apple Store starting later today (June 13).
