Some people are already wondering if you should get the new Macbook Pro. Is it worth it? What are it’s features. In this blog we are going to breakdown some of its new features that this machine has been given in order to bring customers back and in order for us as consumers can be more productive.

M1 Pro:

Well, these both have M1 chips, which are the processing component for the Apple products. These M1 chips can do so much. Such as the M1 Pro, this give up to 10-core CPU, 16-core GPU, 32GB of unified memory and 200GB per second memory bandwidth. This is incredibly fast. But is it fast enough?

M1 Max:

Apple has came up a even better processing chip known as the M1 Max which doubles the GPU from 16-core to 32-core, doubling unified memory from 32GB to 64GB, and up to 400GB/s of memory bacndwidth. This is incredible!

Video Playback:

As for the 14" model, you can get up to 17 hours of video playback, also with up to 11 hours of just wireless web browing. Unlike the 16" model you get 21 ours of video playback and 14 hours of wireless web browsing. There has been a slight increase compared to the previous models of the Macbook Pro.

Plugging in:

One of the changes that is coming this year with the new Macbook Pros are the inputs that it will bring. On one side, you will have a SDXC card reader, an HDMI, and a Thunderbold 4, and on the other side you will have the regular headphone jack, 2 more Thunderbolt 4, and check this out! We will have MagSafe 3! This is what I am really excited about. Why wasn’t this introduced previously? Marketing Strategy I guess… Well, as long as my Macbook doesn't get pulled down to the ground if someone trips on the charger. MagSafe would avoid your computer to be getting pulled down to the ground if someone trips on your wire.
