The MacBook Pro with the latest Chip, M1, is a laptop with an unbeatable combo of power and endurance, making it one of the best laptops you can buy in the year 2021.
Small Chip. Giant Leap.
The MacBook M1 Pro can be said to be a revolutionary device in form of the upgrades that we have seen with their Apple’s own M1 Chip. Other Previous series had some upgrades but considering that the company now has full control from the Hardware to the Software makes this interesting.
The Base models for the M1 chip start with an 8-core CPU and 8-Core GPU, Storage is at 256GB SSD and 8GB of RAM. There are also the same M1 chip models with the highest being 16GB and 2TB SSD. These high specs are recommended for people who do a lot of intensive Video and 3D rendering considering the RAM and storage for the big files is high.
The most important thing to note about these MacBooks is that you get what you buy in terms of storage and RAM. They are not upgradable which also remains the same as the other older models from around 2016. It’s advisable to make a good decision at the point of purchase.
The one thing that caught our attention is the Battery Life on this M1 Chip MacBook. We have seen manufacturers claim a product is capable of certain performance on paper but when you put them into a real-life experience they fail to do so. If you are continuously active on your machine with even 150 nits of screen display the MacBook Pro M1 will last up to 16hrs or 17hrs which is like double the time with the previous models.
On Geekbench 5.1(Really recommended) which measures the overall performance of a Laptop. The MacBook Pro M1 scored a whopping 5,945 on the multi-core. This compared to my 2015 iMac 21 inches which scored 1985 on the multiple cores.
The MacBook Pro is powerful enough to play mainstream games at fairly high frame rates. According to many gamers, the MacBook M1 chip can handle any powerful game from Gathering Storm, Civilization VI, and Rise of the Tomb Raider.
The MacBook Pro M1 has brought the Magic Keyboard and saved us from the Butterfly keyboard which has had a lot of issues and complaints in the last few years. The MacBook M1 Pro’s Touchpad is very responsive and quite spacious. The Touch Bar is very useful as it represents good shortcuts that come in handy when working on different projects and tabs.
The Display on the MacBook M1 pro is really vibrant and sharp, supports the P3 wide color gamut, offering excellent color reproduction. This is great for photographers and video editors who need true-to-life colors.
PORTS!PORTS! PORTS! this is where people feel like Apple has taken something they needed from them. All the MacBook m1 pro(s) come with 2 usb c ports which previously were only available for the Base model in the previous generations. The only other port available is the Aux cable port(3.5mm port). This means for any additional need you will have to get the Type c Hub.
The Stereo Speakers on the MacBook Pro M1 have the same great kick and wide sound field that they had before. Apple Audio has been good all along and has been improving after each release. The MacBook Pro M1 might not have the same sound as the previous 16 inches MacBook Pro.
Overall the MacBook Pro 💻 M1 is the best machine you can purchase in the Year 2021 considering all the performance experienced throughout our usage.
We definitely recommend.
