Apple MacBook Pro (M1 Pro) review: A costly but killer laptop for creators

  • How "Pro" are you"That's the question you have to ask yourself when considering an upgrade to one of Apple's new 14- or 16-inch MacBook Pros with its M1 Pro chip inside.
  • The redesigned laptops come with a host of improvements that were frankly way overdue, like the return of physical function keys (amen!), more ports, and a MagSafe power cable, among others.
  • Those quality of life tweaks aside, your willingness to pay over $2,000 for the new Pro model will mostly come down to whether or not you need the raw computing power of Apple's new chip.
  • And that figure, by the way, is on the low-end of configurations.
  • It's clear that Apple's taking the Pro moniker quite literally for its entire 2021 product lineup (see: iPhone 13 Pro).
