Apple unveiled its new 14.2.2 and 16.2 inch laptops, the MacBook Pro 14 and 16, two nights ago. . But these laptops are not at all similar to last year's MacBook Pro in terms of hardware power, and have become incredibly more powerful. The MacBook Pro, which is one of the company's most powerful laptops, uses proprietary chips. But these chips are not at all similar to what we have seen before. Last year, Apple unveiled the M1 chip, which could be considered an improved version of the A15 chip used in the iPhone 13 series. But this time the story is completely different, and the new chips can't even be compared to some desktop processors.
The MacBook Pro 14 and 16 this year use two processors called the M1 Pro and M1 Max. These chips use 10 processing cores, but the main difference is in the number of transistors and graphics cores. According to information released by Apple, the M1 Pro, which is also considered a weaker chip, uses 16 graphics cores and 33.7 billion transistors. The M1 Max uses 32 graphics cores and 57 billion transistors. The M1 Max is up to 64GB. These two laptops also use powerful speakers that, from the clarity and clarity of the sound to their separation, everything is done in the best possible way. The variety of ports has also increased with the introduction of three 4th generation Thunderbolt, HDMI and memory card ports.
The MacBook Pro was and still is very powerful as long as it used Intel chips He opened a special account on their hardware power. But the arrival of the M1 chip in the 13-inch MacBook Pro last year completely changed our expectations of a laptop. Because a new page was opened in the MacBook Pro history book and we saw a computer that comes with a processor based on the ARM architecture and can run phone-specific applications easily and without the need for a third-party application. A feature that Intel and AMD have not been able to achieve yet because their chip architecture is different. If you're a regular Apple user, it's definitely not a mistake to upgrade your MacBook Pro to what was unveiled two nights ago, as you'll be experiencing a big leap in hardware.
Although now the MacBook Pro Available in the Apple Store, they use the M1 chip, but there are a number of differences that may confuse you in choosing between these products. As a result, we decided to make a comparison between the models that have been on the market since 2019 to see what features each one uses and how it differs from the next generation models. (A model from 2015 can also be seen in comparison).Technical Specifications MacBook Pro 14-inch 2021 MacBook Pro 16-inch 2021 strong MacBook M1 Air 2020 MacBook Pro 16-inch 2019 MacBook Pro 13-inch 2020 MacBook Pro 15-inch 2019 < 15-inch MacBook Pro 2015 Base Price $ 1999 $ 2499 $ 9999 strong> $ 2399 $ 1299 $ 2399 $ 1999 Display 14 2.2 inches 16.2 inches 13.3 inches 16 inches 13.3 inches 15.4 inches 15.4 inches image resolution 3024 1964 3456 2234 2560 1600 3072 1920 2560 1600 2880 1800 rong> 2880 1800 True Tone Technology Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes No No No No No No Yes Yes Yes No Pixel density > 254 pixels per inch 254 pixels per inch 227 pixels per inch 226 pixels per inch 227 pixels per inch 220 pixels per inch 220 pixels per inch 1600 nits brightness ( Maximum brightness) 1600 nits (Maximum brightness) 400 nits 500 nits 500 nits 500 nits 300 nits Refresh 120 Hz 120Hz 60Hz 60Hz 60Hz 60Hz 60Hz > Dimensions 12.31 8.71 inches 14.01.9.77 inches 184.108.40.206 inches 14.09.9.68 inches 220.127.116.11 inches 18.104.22.168 inches 14.13 9.73 inches Thickness 0.61 inches 0.66 inches 0.63 Inch 0.64 Inch 0.61 Inch 0.61 Inch 0.71 Inch Weight 1.6 kg 2.13 kg (M1 Pro) - 2.17 kg (M1 Max) 1.3 kg </<strong> 1.9kg 1.4kg 1.8kg 2kg Lifespan Battery (claimed) 11 hours 14 hours 15 hours 11 hours 17 hours 10 hours 9 hours Processor M1 Pro 8 and 10 cores - M1 Max 10 cores M1 Pro and M1 Max with 10 cores M1 with 8 cores Core i7 with 6 cores and frequency 2.6 GHz M1 with 8 cores Core i7 with 6 cores and frequency 2.6 GHz Core i7 with 4 cores and frequency 2.5 GHz Graphics 14/16 Cores (M1 Pro) - 24/32 Cores (M1 Max) M1 Max 24/32 Cores M1 with 7.8 cores Upgradeable to AMD Radeon Pro 5300M M1 with 8 cores Upgradeable to AMD Radeon Pro 555X strong Upgradeable to AMD Radeon R9 M370X RAM 16/32/64 GB 16/32/64 GB 8/16 GB 16/32/64 GB 8/16 GB 16/32 GB 16 GB Internal memory up to 8 terabytes NVMe up to 8 terabytes NVMe Up to 2TB NVMe Up to 8TB NVMe Up to 2TB NVMe Up to 4TB NVMe up to 1TB PCIe ports 3 USB-C 4.0 ports with support for Thunderbolt 4 - SD card slot - HDMI and Magnificent 3 3 USB-C 4.0 ports with Thunderbolt 4 support - SD card slot - with HDMI and Magsif 3 2 USB-C 4.0 ports with Thunderbolt 4 support > 4 USB-C 4.0 ports with Thunderbolt 3 support 2 USB-C 4.0 ports with Thunderbolt 3 support 4 USB-C 4.0 ports with Thunderbolt support 3 2 USB-C 3.0 ports and Thunderbolt 2.0 - Memory card port - HDMI and Magnet 2 Number of speakers 6
As you can see, this year's MacBook Pros have made incredible progress in terms of display. Among these improvements, we can mention their 120 Hz promotion display, which we see in all models of this series. The sharpness and maximum brightness have also been significantly increased.
The webcam used for screen cropping has also been significantly improved, and it can now shoot at 1080p resolution. So it should come as no surprise that this year's MacBooks are far ahead of their predecessors in all areas. Of course, if we want to talk about the models that are currently available in the Apple Store, the competition may be a little more sensitive, but again, we must note that none of them can compete with the new MacBooks. (MacBook Pro 14- and 16-inch 2021 - MacBook Pro 13-inch 2020 and MacBook M1 Air 2020).
Overall, the M1 Air is currently the best option for this It is a group of users who are looking for powerful but at the same time affordable products, because by having various and at the same time reasonable prices, they can meet your needs in all fields at a medium level.
Unless your need for a laptop is limited to the capabilities of the M1 Air and you need to buy products with a brighter display, more powerful audio system and longer battery life. In this case, the new laptops of the American company will definitely meet your needs in the best possible way.
If you are using the models of two years ago or older, you must consider the new laptops as your main choice. Be careful, because in this case, buying last year's models is not very economical unless there is a big price difference between them in the market you are in.
