The trailer for the upcoming Aretha Franklin biopic, Respect, was alive with color. My favorite scene had actress Jennifer Hudson, dressed in a rose red sweater with a powder pink blouse underneath. Her brown skin looked warm and healthy and the detail was so sharp, you could see the sunlight glinting off of individual strands of hair, showing off the chocolate lowlights throughout. However, the XPS 13 was the brightest with nits. Skinny speakers, big punch. Once it did, I could hear the breaths as she enunciated her words, particularly on the ts or a quick succession of ah, ah, ahs.
Apple put the uncomfortable nightmare of its Butterfly keyboard behind it and my fingers are better for it. I spent hours writing this review and never felt any discomfort. I easily surpassed my 70 words per minute average, hitting 76 wpm on the 10fastfingers typing test. The backlighting underneath the keycaps is bright enough to use in darkened settings, which is good for the hunt-and-peck typists out there.
I never had to worry about running out of space to navigate. The ARM-based 5-nanometer chip has 16 billion transistors, which is the most the company has ever put into a chip. Starting with the processor and graphics card, theM1 features an eight-core CPU with four of the cores being dedicated to high performance and the remaining four focusing on efficiency. According to Apple, the high-performance cores will deliver industry-leading speeds on single-threaded tasks and when combined, they deliver a sizable boost to multithreaded performance.
The performance cores deliver a 3. Both sets of cores work in tandem with the help of the performance controller, which allows all of the cores to work simultaneously. Each core has execution units for demanding tasks. In addition, the M1 GPU is capable of executing nearly 25, threads, delivering 2. With all that power, the M1 GPU can process multistream 4K video playback in real time and handle massive image processing tasks. These new apps can run on both macOS, iOS and iPadOS without any difficulty, automatically adjusting size and scale according to the device.
It also means that the MacBook now has access to a huge library of apps. Apple made a lot of lofty claims about M1, and with its 16GB of unified memory, the chip lives up to the hype. The notebook also did well on our synthetic benchmarks. Sarting with Geekbench 5. The MacBook Pro scorched the competition on the Handbrake benchmark where we have the laptop convert a 4K video to p. On the Silicon Beta version of Handbrake, the MacBook clocked a time of 7 minutes and 44 seconds, during the Rosetta 2 iteration, the time rose to Both times are still much faster than the competing systems.
The Spectre was the slowest at However, the ZenBook got the win with a score of During the AfterEffects benchmark, the MacBook reached , surpassing the category average. Both scores are faster than their respective averages 2, MBps read, 2, When we ran the Rise of the Tomb Raider benchmark, we saw a frame rate of 29 frames per second at Very High on x When we re-ran the test at p, however, the frame rate dropped to 18 fps.
The longest MacBook Pro battery life ever. The ZenBook tapped out at while the Spectre lasted The XPS 13 finished with a time of For instance, Big Sur gives users a Control Panel, which is kind of ironic since Microsoft is talking about ditching the feature. The macOS version gives instant to key utilities such as volume, Bluetooth, keyboard brightness and AirDrop to name a few. I like how you can pin things to the Menu Bar, although I had a bit of trouble removing them.
You can also adjust the size. Notifications have been incorporated into Widgets, grouping the info by app. Boasting a bright, bold color palette that just draws and keeps your attention. But the crown jewel of Big Sur is Safari. Similar to Chrome, you can set a different background image to load with every browsing session. You can also set Favorites, a collection of pinned apps for quick access.
And if you like to spice up your browser experience with extensions, you now have a dedicated place in the App store to find the latest. As someone who typically has more than 40 tabs open, I appreciate the way Safari handles its tabs. The side profile is thicker and rounder. And as some keen Apple historians have pointed out, it pays homage to an Apple laptop from 20 years ago, the Titanium PowerBook G4.
There are a number of reasons for the thicker chassis, including having room for additional ports and better thermals. The inch is just 0. Importantly, the inch MacBook Pro that I reviewed grew in size over the previous, Intel-powered generation, which was 0. While it took entirely too long to get here, Apple has arrived at what I believe is the best possible port selection.
You still get three Thunderbolt 4 ports for all the high-powered docking you could need. First off, charging will primarily happen through the MagSafe 3 power adapter on the left side. What a glorious return! It also feels like it has a stronger magnetic grip, and it is, of course, thinner.
It even has a fancy braided cord, which is beautiful. The SD card slot in particular feels like a must. So many of the buyers of the MacBook Pro will be transferring files from a camera to a laptop. The MacBook Pro marks the most significant evolution in display technology for the line since That shows just how far ahead of the game Apple was back then, but the competition has clearly caught up.
The MacBook Pro takes back the crown, but not in ways that you might expect. That represents an increase in pixel density from pixels per inch ppi to ppi. In terms of black levels, the difference between this and OLED is nearly indistinguishable. Both blow traditional LED out of the water and provide a much larger depth of quality. And when it comes to supported content, it looks incredible. Very few people are buying a laptop just to watch HDR movies on.
Fair enough. But the panel is worthy of praise in and of itself, especially since it now includes a Hz ProMotion refresh rate. If you still think high refresh rates are only noticeable or advantageous for gaming laptops, just try toggling off ProMotion and locking the screen at 60Hz. Animations and scrolling feel so much smoother. Heck, even the reduced ghosting of the cursor improves the overall look and feel of the system.
Apple has brought updates to both the webcam and speakers this time around. This upgrade is significant, resulting in a much crisper, smoother feed for your laptop-driven video calls. Webcams have never been so important, and laptop manufacturers are finally starting to figure that out. It really puts the MacBook Pro in its own league. Now, there were times where I felt the smoothing effects were a little too strong or the color balance a bit too warm.
The MacBook Pro maintains its reputation as offering the best audio experience on any laptop. Apple upped the ante this time around with an upgraded six-speaker sound system. The tweeters are both larger, and Apple says the woofers now go a half octave deeper. The bass thumps harder and the stereo separation feels wider than ever. The MacBook Pro actually offers an enjoyable set of speakers to listen to music on. But more than that, chances are these sound better than your average Bluetooth speaker or computer speakers.
Like the webcam and speakers, the keyboard and touchpad are, without a doubt, the best you can find on a laptop. No doubt in my mind. The keyboard features nice springy keys with a cozy 1. The Touch Bar is, of course, the big change to the keyboard in the model. The Touch Bar never lived up to its promise , nor received the support it needed to grow into something more useful.
The function row is back, but somehow improved. Well, Apple did it by increasing the size. I love these changes. In making these keys larger, though, Apple has removed a few important function keys, namely the backlighting brightness and Launchpad keys. I would have preferred a slightly smaller Escape key to make room for brightness control for keyboard backlighting, but everyone is going to have their own opinion about this.
It remains vast and expansive, with plenty of space for long swipe and multi-finger gestures. The Force Touch Trackpad remains a standout, simulating the feeling of a click using only a small motorized haptic feedback engine. That sounds like a lot, but the inch MacBook Pro has always been expensive.
The sweet spot for you will depend on what exactly your needs are. Somewhere in between is likely where you want to be, regardless of whether you end up choosing the M1 Max or M1 Pro. You should also be aware that the starting configuration of the inch M1 Pro uses just an 8-core processor.
The lines get blurry for that lower-end MacBook Pro, which is bound to be the most popular of the bunch, but keep in mind that this is first and foremost a laptop made for professional creatives. And for those that actually need a pro laptop, you just found your ultimate tool. Thanks to the vastly improved performance of the M1 Pro and M1 Max, these MacBook Pros can actually be used as professional machines for content creators.
That means photo editors, color graders, website designers, programmers, video editors, 3D modelers, game designers, music producers, and more. If you want to do more than just dabble in these creative fields, dropping the cash on one of these new MacBook Pros is going to pay off. As I get my hands on more configurations of these new MacBook Pros, I intend to make some more precise comparisons between the different models, specifically between the M1 Pro and M1 Max.
For now, though, my review unit was the inch model with the M1 Pro. Both of these chips have an extra two CPU cores for a total of 10 over the standard M1 featured in the inch MacBook Pro and Air , and that lends a helping hand in multi-core processing. Taking a look at how it scored in synthetic benchmarks, you can clearly see that higher core count flex its muscles. Handbrake is another CPU-bound application I tested the machine on, and it had a similar performance gain over the M1.
But the real improvement here is in graphics. The M1 Max, in particular, offers GPU performance that is meant to rival discrete graphics cards found in competitive gaming laptops and creative laptops.
