We delve into the specs below, and offer the best places to order it too. You can get the Mac Studio with either the M1 Max, or the brand new, and envelope-pushing M1 Ultra chip – 'the world's most powerful chip for a personal computer,' says Apple. The first one retails at $1,999/£1,999 and the second will cost you a cool $3,999/£3,999. If you see any prices even slightly lower than that below, we suggest you make the most of them!

The Mac Studio is Apple's brand new personal computer, and it comes with quite the check list of awesome specs. First of all, there are two models available: the M1 Max-chipped version, and the M1 Ultra-chipped version. The latter chip is all-new, and really ramps up performance. But let's look at the entry level M1 Max chip model first. 

The Mac Studio M1 Max comes with a 10-core CPU and 24-core GPU, plus a 16-core Neural Engine. You get 32GB unified memory and 512GB SSD with that, plus a range of ports, including two USB-C ports and one SDXC card slot at the front, and four Thunderbolt 4 ports, two USB-A and one HDMI port at the back. Add a 10GB ethernet port and a 3,5mm headphone jack, and you've got a pretty great connected PC. This model will set you back $1,999/£1,999, but trade-in discounts are available (a 2017, 15-inch, 2.8 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 MacBook Pro will get you $650/£600 to trade in, for example). 

The M1 Ultra is the all-new, all-powerful Apple chip, and is only for the serious professional creative (with some cash to splash). $3,999/£3,999 will get you a 20-core CPU, 48-core GPU with a 32-core Neural Engine. Up front you get two Thunderbolt 4 ports and one SDXC card slot. And round back all the same ports as the M1 Max version.
