MacBook Pro with M1 Pro and M1 Max review: laptop of the year

  • Am Vor 2 Monate

    The VergeThe Verge

    Apple’s new MacBook Pro 14 and MacBook Pro 16 are a triumphant success - they have excellent performance, stunning battery life, useful ports, and incredible displays. The only knock against them is you’re going to pay a lot for all that good stuff.

Okay 'The Verge'. This is an amazing presentation. Multiple personalities who know what they are speaking about. Beautifully shot and edited. All angles of the product plus answering your audience's questions. Perfect review

This review is a masterpiece. However, it has a huge bias towards creators. These laptops could be a huge win for the developers as well and this part of the story remains untouched.

You should test to see how it runs engineering and architecture programs. I would like to see how the M1 max handles programs that require intense 3d rendering and how it can handle creating huge CAD documents

These Macbooks were off the charts!

I’m a heavy Final Cut user and so this is extremely tempting, but I’m still waiting for a 27” iMac Pro version of the M1. Very exciting times for us video editors!

As a Premiere user, I'm so grateful we're getting more Premiere-centric Mac reviews like this! I mean, it's jaw-dropping to see FCP running crazy fast on a Mac, but that is almost always a given

This was an amazing review. I loved the use case focus and letting experts each share their experience and their very specific recommendations. It hit everything I was curious of and it makes me feel very comfortable understanding the pros/cons of each model from the MBA with M1 up to the MBP 16 with M1MAX. Given how complex all of this is, that's an absolutely incredible accomplishment, fantastic job to everyone that worked on this!

Guys, great presentation, but it would be nice if next time you also included benchmarks for other non-content creation tasks (or games), such as development and programming. The relative time the notebook takes to run a more "math code" is also important.

This was a fantastically produced review - Well done!

Thank you for comparing the 16" M1 Pro battery life to the 16" M1 Max battery life! This is the first review I've seen compare those two. I picked the M1 Pro because I assumed its battery life would be better than the M1 Max, and now this proves it. I don't need the GPU power, but I can definitely take advantage of the battery life.

Just got my base 16” M1 Pro yesterday. The speakers blew me away. Very impressed with the screen, speed and battery life. Great upgrade on my 2018 15” Pro.

A brilliant video, as can be expected! Loved the professional input!

Great review, these are the tests and benchmarks I've been waiting for! Actual real world true performance tests. It would be nice to see some more GPU focused benchmarks, such as 3D GPU rendering with Redshift or Octane, and GPU video exporting with DaVinci Resolve.

Finally a review that really matters! I was looking for a designer perspective and I'm really happy to see someone showing the performance on Premiere and After Effects. Thanks Alix and The Verge.

This was an awesome review. Thanks for all the effort put into this! Great choice of comparisons and tests.

The observation about how the Max model consumes rather more power, thus shortening battery life, even if one is not doing graphics-intensive work, is an important of information.

Thanks for one of the best reviews I've seen! Specifically, detailing the Pro and Max versions. I ordered the Max, but can cancel. As the Pro's battery life in this review is very tempting.

I find it hard to believe that these companies can put great tiny cameras in phones but they can't do better than a 1080p camera on their flagship laptops.

Thanks! Your reviews are consistently fair, with data that makes sense to multiple levels of consumer, and you project and honesty and integrity from so many others out there who seem like sales folks for one manufacturer or other. Keep it up!
