Apple has us excited with their latest 2021 MacBook Pro models. The new designs come in 16.2 and 14.2-inch size options, and they’re finely equipped with more ports, mini-LED displays, a memory of 64GB, and so much more.
In this blog, we’ll go over some of the most significant features to help you make a concise decision on purchasing the new MacBook Pro.
The 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pro can either be configured with the M1 Max or M1 Pro. They are coming with a 10-core feature allocated to both chips. There is a graphic difference between the chips, with the M1 Max being available with a 32-core GPU, and the M1 Pro being available with a 16-core GPU.
The M1 Max and M1 Pro chips are 1.5 times faster than the M1 chip in lower Macs. It is also noted that Apple’s pronounced that the M1 Max chip is four times faster in graphic resolution than the M1 chip.
A complete redesign of the new MacBook Pro has been made in various ways. The new MacBook Pro still holds onto its aluminum design, but it also got a different shape as it is flatter with less curve at its rear. Featuring inch-sizes 16 and 14, the MacBook Pro comes in at 12.3×8.7×0.6 inches, and it is also an extra inch larger and sturdier than the older Macs.
The new MacBook Pro also features a notch for the camera on top, an all-black keyboard, unique additional ports, and a large trackpad.
The internal design of the MacBook Pro has adjusted the internal space and is assembled around an ultra-modern thermal system. This system can pass more air than the previous Mac machines, even with low fan speed.
The newly upgraded MacBook Pro models come with a well-equipped “Liquid retina XDR display” that works with a mini-LED tech, the same one featured in the 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
The 16-inch Pro has a 16.2-inch mini-LED display with a resolution native of 3456×2234 Pixels (254 per inch pixels). In contrast, the 14-inch Pro comes with a 14.2-inch mini-LED display with a resolution native of 3024×1984 Pixels (254 per inch pixels).
Supporting Apple’s ProMotion and HDR display, refresh rates can be achieved at about 120Hz. This activity is aided through the mini-LEDs (10000) that have been individually grouped into dimming local zones.
It is imperative to say that both models offer impressive battery power.
The 16-inch MacBook Pro provides 21 hours of non-stop playbacks of your favorite music, videos, or documentary, plus an effortless Webstream of up to 14 hours. The older 16-inch model provided 11 hours of playback of videos, music, or documentary and 11 hours of Webstream access. Now, that is a notable difference. The 16-inch pro model also works with a 140W adapter power.
The 14-inch MacBook Pro model alongside the M1 pro/ Max chip gives up to 17 hours of non-stop music, videos, and documentary viewing and 11 hours of Web streaming in contrast to the 2020 Intel model that offered only 10 hours of both. The 14-inch Pro model also works with a 67W adapter power.
An improved 1080p camera is what you get in the MacBook Pro, and it is strongly fortified by the ISP (Image signal processor). Sharp image views, natural looks, better low-light performance are some of the pros of the Image signal processor.
As far as port goes, the MacBook Pro models are equipped with an HDMI port that allows a 4k display at 60Hz. It is also equipped with an SDXC card that can run at speeds up to 250MB/s. It also features a headphone jack plus three thunderblt4/US4 Ports that support up to 40GB/s speed, and it can also serve as a Display Port.
The MagSafe Port was also brought back by Apple, and it was accompanied by a Magsafe cable which can serve for charging purposes. The MagSafe charging port also is one of its best features.
