iFixit has posted its teardown of the new 13-inch MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro with Apple's M1 chip.

While Apple touts its M1-powered Macs as nothing short of a revolution, internally, they could hardly be any more similar to their predecessors. The new 13” MacBook Pro looks so familiar inside, we had to double-check that we didn’t accidentally purchase the old model. Meanwhile, the new MacBook Air’s biggest move was to … eliminate the fan. Amazing, right? Well, in many ways, yes.

Highlights:
● On the MacBook Air, Apple nixed the fan in favor of a simple aluminum heat spreader hanging off the left edge of the logic board.
● M1 MacBook Pro’s single fan is identical to the fan in the two-port Intel MacBook Pro 2020
● Next to the shiny silver M1 chip on each board you’ll notice two small silicon rectangles. Those are the new “integrated” memory chips: 8 GB (2x 4 GB) of SK hynix LPDDR4X memory.
