Apple’s latest táo macbook pro revision is its best yet, offering incredible performance & great battery alongside improved ports, the best máy tính xách tay display we’ve seen, và a new camera. It"s still mighty expensive though.

Whether you"re a skywatcher looking for something khổng lồ edit their photos of the night sky on, or you just need something lớn watch sci-fi movies on, the táo macbook pro 16-inch is a fantastic laptop.

Apple’s M1 cpu bought huge performance gains while extending the battery life of its apple macbook phiên bản pro M1 13-inch model last year, but like the M1 macbook Air, its exterior stayed more or less the same.

This year, it’s all changed on the thiết kế front – the new apple macbook pro (with M1 Pro or M1 Max chip) is a less portable device, at least in terms of its overall size, but is a much more capable one.

Processor: Apple M1 Pro chip 10-core CPU Operating system: macOS Big SurScreen size: 16.2-inch (also available in 14.2-inch version)Weight: 4.7 lbs (2.1 kg)Memory: 16GB, 32GB or 64GB (32GB tested)Battery life: up to lớn 14 hours wireless website browsingStorage: 512GB, 1TB, 2TB, 4TB, or 8TB versionsDisplay: Liquid Retina XDR display, 3456 x 2234, 1,600 nits peak brightnessGraphics: Integrated 16-core GPUPorts: three Thunderbolt 4 (USB-C), MagSafe 3, HDMI 2.0, SD card slot, 3.5mm headphone jack

Function keys, an SD card reader, & MagSafe are all back, while the new Liquid Retina XDR display is the finest we’ve seen on a máy tính xách tay yet, offering stunning brightness and up to 120Hz refresh rate thanks lớn ProMotion.

The notch that holds the camera is still here sadly, but we"re willing lớn let that slide, especially since it now holds a 1080p webcam (that’s right, the 720p sensor is finally gone).

Then there’s the cpu itself, which takes the baton from the M1 version & runs with it, offering huge performance gains across basic & more demanding tasks. Plus, you get all the M1 goodness, lượt thích compatible iOS & iPadOS apps and impressive battery life regardless of what you’re doing. All this definitely stacks up lớn make the apple macbook phiên bản pro M1 16-inch one of the best laptops for photo editing.

Put simply, it’s the best laptop apple macbook that táo has made, but, as expected, it does remain expensive.

MacBook Pro 16-inch review: Design

Available in Silver or GrayIncredible new displaySlightly thicker

While the vi xử lý core of the laptop macbook Pro"s design hasn’t changed (it’s still an aluminum clamshell), there are plenty of differences from the last hãng intel version of the 16-inch apple macbook Pro.

The first is that it’s thicker, with the base of the máy tính a little bulkier, while the corners are also a little more square. This actually makes it look a little closer to the 2012 non-Retina version, which we hesitate to hotline retro lest we crumble to dust.

On the left-hand side, you’ll find a MagSafe port (allowing for the cable lớn pull away if someone trips over the cable), two USB-C ports (both USB 4.0 certified), và a headphone jack that now supports high-impedance headphones. On the right, there’s another USB-C port (also 4.0), an SD thẻ slot, & an HDMI 2.0 port.

While you can charge the máy tính xách tay through the MagSafe, those that enjoy “one cable” setups with USB-C docking stations that power nguồn their machines currently will be pleased to know you can still charge via USB-C. The 16-inch comes with a 140W charger, but you’ll have lớn pay extra for that on the 14-inch.

There’s the ubiquitous trackpad (still the best on the market) and a great, scissor-switch keyboard which is now found in a matte black tray. Still no sign of a matte black MacBook Pro, though, sadly. You’ll also find that punchy speakers reside on either side of the keyboard.

Finally, the display is big and beautiful, but we’ll get lớn that shortly. As we noted above, there is a notch that hangs down from the much smaller đứng top bezel, but outside of apps with longer menu bars you’re unlikely to lớn see it – và those menu bars simply flank it, anyway. The notch houses a 1080p FaceTime camera that’s a huge step up from prior models which were saddled with a 720p sensor.

MacBook Pro 16-inch review: Specs, performance, & features

M1 Pro cpu is great for all kinds of tasksImpressive battery life given the power nguồn on offerInstant wake và iOS compatibility

The appeal of the transition for táo bị cắn customers is threefold – your Macs can run even more apps, they have more power, và they last longer. The M1 Pro does all of that, and it does it incredibly well.

In our testing, we were able lớn flit between apps, streaming services, và even games in an instant. In fact, even with dozens of apps open, we couldn’t get the fans to lớn spin up, and that meant we also got an impressive 11 hours of battery life. You can expect even more if you’re using Safari instead of Chrome, or focus more on less intensive tasks lượt thích checking thư điện tử and web browsing.

The M1 Pro in our đánh giá unit not only works hard, but it plays hard, too. We hit 70FPS on League of Legends (LoL), all running buttery smooth thanks lớn the ProMotion display that both increases và decreases the refresh rate depending on what you’re doing with it – and LoL isn’t even optimized for the M1 architecture.

The good news is that whether an ứng dụng is Intel-based or M1-ready, it’ll run on the M1 Pro or M1 Max with no issue. When you first xuất hiện the app, táo bị cắn dở essentially rewrites it for M1 using Rosetta 2, which happens so quickly you’re unlikely khổng lồ even notice it. It never needs to vày it again, và we saw impressive performance throughout all apps we tested – although most of the more popular macOS apps are already M1-ready.

The M1 being closer lớn iPhone & iPad chips brings two further improvements, và these are true for the M1 Pro, too; instant wake & iOS app compatibility. If the apple macbook pro is in sleep mode, or has the lid closed, you can hit a key or pop it mở cửa to have it instantly wake up. It’s iPhone/iPad-like, và means we’re more likely khổng lồ use the Mac for tasks than ever before.

Then there’s iOS & iPadOS compatibility. While developers have khổng lồ opt-in, you’ll see plenty of iPhone và iPad apps on the Mac tiện ích Store. Your mileage may vary, but we’ve seen shopping apps, banking apps, & plenty more that have been useful.

MacBook Pro 16-inch review: Image editing

(Image credit: Apple)Photoshop optimized for M1 alreadyHuge headroom for creative projectsNew screen is gorgeous

If you’re a creative with a visual workflow, you’re in for a treat. Not only will the laptop macbook Pro’s battery life mean you’re able to vì chưng more out and about without reaching for a charger, but the display brings your content to the fore in a way we’ve not seen on a máy tính display before.

Based on Apple’s prohibitively expensive (but incredibly accurate) Pro Display XDR, the Liquid Retina XDR display here has a peak brightness of 1,600 nits which is incredibly bright. It also has a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio so content absolutely pops.

The M1 Pro can apply filters & functions a whopping 3.3 times faster than the 13-inch intel MacBook Pro, và that tốc độ can be felt on more complex projects. You’ll also be pleased khổng lồ know that it’ll now support two external displays, something the M1 version struggled with outside of some dongle usage.

All of this power nguồn stacks up lớn provide an excellent image editing experience, which makes this the perfect companion khổng lồ go alongside one of the best cameras for astrophotographers.

MacBook Pro 16-inch review: User reviews

As you can imagine from the praise we’ve lavished on it thus far, there’s a lot to lượt thích about the macbook phiên bản pro 2021 – but there are some pain points.

Some customers have been disappointed in the lack of USB-A ports (although these were phased out some time ago), while some reported the machine doesn’t hit the heights of gaming that they’d hoped.

We"ve got a guide on how khổng lồ build a PC for VR that should phối you off in the right direction if you"re looking for a gaming powerhouse.

Should you buy the táo macbook pro 16-inch?

If you’ve got the money, it’s hard khổng lồ point out a laptop this powerful – it really is more akin to a desktop.

As before, gamers need not apply, but the M1 Pro version still performs well on Mac-compatible games. Creatives, however, will love this laptop as they will fly through audio, video, and photo edits with plenty of time lớn spare.

By bringing back the previously removed ports, function keys, & MagSafe, the 2021 macbook pro is the closest hãng apple has come to lớn the excellent 2014 model – & with the M1 Pro chip inside và the Liquid Retina XDR display, it’s actually surpassed it.
