Now, he said in another tweet, "ARM MacBook from $799 and up, 13-inch MacBook Pro from $1099". Each is $200 cheaper than the current Intel version of the MacBook Air at $999 and $1299 for the 13-inch MacBook Pro, respectively. Considering the above projections of the difference between Apple Silicon and Intel chips combined, it seems to be a generally reasonable estimate.
The only question remains that while komiya_kj says MacBook Pro on the one hand, he doesn't mention the Air branding when it comes to MacBooks. Tom's Guide, a gadget blog, has interpreted this as a possibility of either a major redesign of the MacBook Air or a revival of the discontinued 12-inch MacBook.
If the battery capacity of the Apple Silicon version of the MacBook Air remains unchanged from the previous model, the battery life could be improved as well, as the replacement of Intel with Arm-based chips is expected to save power. If that's in addition to increased processing power and a lower price, it could be an ideal machine for mobiles.
