Apple MacBook Pro 13in with M1 (2020) review

 

We go Mac to the future with the M1 chip – but not this notebook's design

Speedy and responsive ; Display remains first-class ; Battery lasts for ages ; Mostly whisper quiet

Design starting to age ; Limited connectivity ; Webcam isn’t that great ; Dare we say it: no touchscreen

We’d love two more Thunderbolt ports and a redesign, but colour us surprised the entry level MacBook Pro has this much to offer.

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (M1 processor) review: The start of something new

 

We've been using the new MacBook Pro with M1 processor to find out how it performs. Are there any problems? Is the battery that much better?

Fast and powerful - and paves the way for Apple silicon future ; No obvious issues with multi-tiered app operation - it just works ; Super battery life ; Great screen

Design hasn't changed - and looks a little tired ; No new features beyond the new processor ; Only up to 16GB of RAM ; Touch Bar still not a must-have ; Just the two ports

This feels like the start of something impressive thanks to new Apple silicon in the M1 processor - which results in lots of power and impressive battery life. It will be fascinating to see not only where Apple goes next, but how the industry responds.

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch M1 review: The iPhone of laptops

 

The new MacBook Pro 13-inch features Apple's new M1 chip, making these laptops more like iPhones than traditional laptops.

M1 is insanely fast ; Beautiful display, as always ; Fantastic battery life ; Speakers sound brilliant ; Top-notch keyboard and trackpad

Only two Thunderbolt ports ; Touch Bar is still frustrating

MacBook Pro M1 review: Apple amazes with its first Silicon MacBook Pro Review | ZDNet

 

If you're looking for a fresh design, look elsewhere. But if you're looking for killer performance, long battery life and broad app support, you'll be hard-pressed to find fault with Apple's inaugural M1-based MacBook Pro.

Fast and powerful ; Long battery life ; All around app support ; Improve camera, despite still 720p

Some iPad apps need an update ; Same design will be tired for some ; Can get pricey with upgrade options ; Caps out at 16GB

MacBook Pro with M1 review: Peak MacBook

 

The MacBook Pro with M1 delivers a killer combo of blazing performance and epic battery life, even if the design is too familiar.

Superb performance ; Crazy long battery life ; Bright and colorful display ; Comfortable Magic Keyboard

Dated design ; Just two Thunderbolt ports

Overall, I really like the 13-inch MacBook Pro with M1 and it’s an excellent choice for power users. But I think for the vast majority of people the new Air is “Pro” enough.

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (2020) review

 

The new MacBook Pro 13-inch delivers a great Magic Keyboard, blazing performance and long battery life — if you're willing to pay a premium.

based on Apple Silicon, but there's no firm timetable. Bottom line: If you want a more powerful portable for work and play — which includes photo and video editing — the 13-inch MacBook Pro is a great choice.

After long time changing my work laptop to new brand. Very satisfied with apple macbook pro M1 Chip, it has all I need to do the job. The battery life, weight and design has improved massively.

Little bit pricy but worth the money, I can not fault anything else.

APPLE MacBook Pro 13.3" (2020) - M1, 256 GB SSD, Space Grey

 

Light, powerfu, great battery life and very well built. Love the touch bar feature.

As ever from Apple, very expensive compared to other higher spec windows based laptops. Some issues also with software glitches. As it is a new processor some programmes do crash a bit but Apple have plans apparently to fix a lot of these issues, so...
